I have recently found out when I was sat in the car waiting for gs to come out of school.

I had radio on in the car and was messing about with Google microphone on my phone.

I pressed the Microphone button, the pressed search for music.

It scanned and brought up the song that was on the radio.

maybe a bit of useless information if you already know.

But the other week on GN someone wanted to find what a piece of music was called.

You can try it out with any music radio/youtube etc.

If I m talking gobbledy Goosh just ignore me lol grin

You can also download Shazam on your phone. Excellent app for this.

I'd have loved this in the 70s! The anguish of trying to decipher lyrics and praying the DJ would say what it was!

On the iPhone you can just say Hey Siri, what's that song

Find your google app on your phone.

just to the right hand side there is a little picture of a microphone.(may be slightly diff on your pho

click the microphone

Further down it should say

" search for song"

the song you are listening to via the tv /radio /car etc will be displayed.

Its really good if you happen to be somewhere and you think " oh I like this song but you don't know what it is "

Just test it out with some music.

I use Shazam for this, too. It shows the lyrics,and if applicable the album, artist of course, year recorded and I think it offers a download as well but I haven't tried that.

Definitely Download Shazam....just point your phone at the radio, press and it brings all the information up within seconds ..even works if you are in the middle of a store and hear something they are playing you like !
