Together to the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL presented in October 2017, Google introduced a innovative automatic music identification system Many people fell in love when they saw its precise functioning, and how Google had managed to incorporate a system of this type that, in addition to do not consume energy , it could work even without Internet connection since the database was stored locally on the phone, and it would be updated with new songs through the new versions of the Pixel Ambient Services app.
And precisely thanks to this application today we have news about the Now Playing mode of Pixel. As they have discovered in XDA-Developers , the latest version of this app confirms the arrival of one of the functions that users of Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL had been asking for months: a history of the songs detected .
For those who are not too familiar with this exclusive utility of the Pixel 2 – although it is possible to take it to other devices -, it is convenient to remember that it is a system based on artificial intelligence, in charge of listening at all times to the ambient sound and Detect, automatically, the songs that are played around.
While this is a most useful function, since it is such a minimally invasive system -only shows the name of the song and the artist in the lower part of the blocking screen, without notifying the user of it with an alert-, in many cases it is possible to lose the name of the song that is being played, being impossible recover it unless it sounds again.
Therefore, it seems that Google intends to incorporate, in the end, a history of songs in Now Playing mode . In this way, as do some third-party tools like Now Playing Register , users will be able to see again the title and the artist of the songs that the device has automatically identified throughout the day. The text string discovered inside the Pixel Ambient Services app, which confirms the arrival of this function, is as follows:
For now, this function is not active, and it is likely that it will not be active until future builds of Android P . Anyway, we are happy to know that Google continues to improve a feature that, although subtle, is one of the most striking and envied exclusive details of its flagship phone partner.
