  • Google’s latest update to Google Now brought a feature that allows you to ask “what’s this song” to find out the name of a song that’s playing at a certain time. The app will listen and it will deliver the artist’s name, title of the song, the price you can get it for in the Play Store and a cover for the album/single.

    You just need to ask your device “what song is playing” and your device’s microphone will listen to the tune, process it and return a result. The function is also able to speak the song back to you. Artist information, pricing and download access via Play Store is available straight from Google Now. The bad thing is that for now only users in USA have exclusive access to this feature.

    On a side note, Windows Phone users have had a similar feature integrated in Bing for a while now, so that’s at least one good thing from Windows Phone we’re seeing on Android. Of course, some of us are already used to go to Shazam when they hear a new song, but it never hurts to have an alternative…
