  • The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL launched with a very neat music recognition feature, with Google noting at the October 4th event that general recognition features would be coming soon to Assistant on other devices.
  • If Google Assistant has voice set as the “Prefered input”method and you’re in any loud environment, you will see a new “What’s thing song?” chip as the first suggestion in the carousel.
  • Meanwhile, users can also ask “What song is this?” and other similar commands to have Assistant start listening for a song.
  • So far, this is live for me on two devices set to the English version of Assistant, including an original Google Pixel.
