Google Assistant can tell what song you're playing

Google Assistant's new feature can tell you what song you're listening to.

The technology giant have developed their own software, which acts like Shazam and tells you all about the track you've just heard.

The feature was trialled on Google Pixel phones for the last month or so and is now being rolled out to all Android phones that use Google Assistant.

Simply ask Google Assistant "what song is this?" or "what song is playing?" and it will give you the song's title, the artist, the lyrics as well as links to it on YouTube and the Google Play store.

And it is not the only handy features Google Assistant has. It can also answer questions, do things for you and it can work with you favourite apps too.

They shared on their website: "Ask it anything. Search for the capital of Botswana or find translations in over 100 languages. Ask your Assistant for your flight status, and what the weather's like when you get there ...

"Tell it to do things. Tell your Assistant to play your jazz playlist or dim the lights through Google Home. Make a reservation, set a reminder or send a message with the help of your Assistant on your phone ...

"Your Google Assistant will learn over time, working with your favorite services and home devices. Shuffle your chill playlist on your phone. Stream videos to your TV, dim the lights or turn down the heat with the help of your Assistant on Google Home."
