If you’re at a bar or listening to music on the radio, identifying a certain song is no longer the hassle it used to be. Earlier, you would have to ask around or simply wait for the song to be played again, but not all you need is your smartphone and you can easily get to know everything about the song – from the artist to the date of release. In this article, we show you how to use Google Assistant to identify any song in any language.

Here’s how you can identify a song using Google Assistant
Step 1: Tap the home icon or say ‘Hey Google’ to trigger Google Voice Assistant.
Step 2: Ask ‘Which song is this?’
Step 3: Play the song on another device.
Step 4: Google will search for the song using the melody and bring up matching results.
Bonus Tip: Use a third-party app
If Google Assistant fails to identify the song, there are plenty of other third-party apps that will do the job for you. You may already know of Shazam, which was the first app that got popular for its accurate song identification. Other apps like Soundhound and MusixMatch also carry out the same task with expertise. All you need to do is download the app and select the song identification feature. Once the app is using your phone’s mic to listen to the surroundings, bring it closer to the source of the sound so it can get a good sample. Within seconds, the app will show you all matching results.
This is how you can use Google Assistant to identify any song. The best part about using Google Assistant is that you don’t even need to play the official recording of the song for it to identify the track. You can even hum a certain section of the song or speak some lyrics into the microphone and Google Assistant will come up with matches for your query.
