Find out what song is playing near you

You can ask your Google Assistant to identify songs playing around you. 

Important: For now, this feature isn't available in all languages.

Ask what song is playing around you

  1. On your phone, touch & hold the Home button or say "Ok Google."
  2. Ask "What’s this song?"
  3. (Optional) Choose to save or share the song:
    • To add the song to a YouTube Music playlist, tap Add to Playlist.
    • To share the song with someone, tap Share.
    • To see the song in a different music app, pick a music service.

Find out what’s playing without asking (Pixel 2 & 3 only)

You can automatically get a notification on your lock screen that tells you what song is playing. Follow the steps to turn on Now Playing.
