If you have an Android phone running the latest version, here’s a trick that should work on many phones.
If you hear an unfamiliar song and want it identified, just say “Okay, Google. What song is this?” The answer should appear on your screen. If you have a PIxel 2 phone, better still. The device is always passively listening and therefore quick to respond to what music is playing in the environment.
Shazam has been done very well IDing songs for years–hey, how many apps have their own TV game show?–but for it to work, you need to open the app and get it to start listening. Google’s solution is completely about voice commands. Cool, no?
