Find Out what Music is Playing Near You on your New Pixel 3
Google’s Pixel 3 has finally arrived, bringing with it some awesome new features to take advantage of, along with others that we already love. Speaking that, one of my favorite features on the Pixel 3 actually debuted on the Pixel 2. Known as Now Playing, this is a function that will detect what song is playing on nearby speakers and show the artist and song title on your screen.
While some features of the smartphone like to hide deep inside settings, enabling Now Playing is a pretty easy task. And this time, Now Playing has improved on the Pixel 3 thanks to its new “Now Playing History” section. If you tap on it, you’ll see a history of the songs identified by the phone sorted by date. Even better, tap on one of the songs, and you’ll get direct access to play the song on any installed music service like YouTube Music.
What do you think of Now Playing? Well, if you haven’t ever used it up to now, I can assure you of the fact that Now Playing is a great feature for anyone who enjoys the idea of discerning what you are listening to. Easy to enable, and with a pretty decent sizeable catalog it can recognize, it totally won my heart, that’s for sure.
What about yours? Will you give it a try? Here you can find the details on how to enable it on your Pixel 3 handset here:
