After opening up the Google Assistant or calling it you can inquire “what song is this?” or “what song is playing?” and in response, the Assistant would be pulling up a card for you with the details and the name of the song. The details provided on the card would be the song name, the artist’s name, song lyrics and the streaming links like Google Play Music for sure, YouTube and Spotify links.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2L have already got the ability to identify songs. But they only recognize popular hits and takes about one minute of listening before providing the song details. This feature was for Pixel devices only, but the recent update is for all the devices having Google Assistant. This new update would enable one to identify the on-demand songs for everyone provided that the individual has access to the Assistant.
