One of my favorite features is Google Assistant. It can do many things, and I’m sure many people didn’t realize it can also identify a song if it’s playing near you anywhere. It’s pretty simple to use and really helpful, and you don’t even need to download anything because Google is already available on your smartphone.

Step 2: After you click the microphone icon, Google Assistant will begin listening to the background voice, whether it is yours or a song. There will be a “What’s this song?” option. All you have to do is tap it.
Step 3: After you’ve clicked the “What’s Song This?” button, Optionally, Google Assistant will begin to listen to it. Bring your phone close to where the music is playing, or keep humming the song. I tried this and it worked perfectly for me. Simply wait a few seconds until Google Assistant recognizes the song.
