It could be better. It is a simple raw app that works well for identifying songs, as long as you have an internet connection. It can't save the song snippit to try to identify later when internet is available. Additionally the option for users who subscribe to play music to be brought directly there to listen to the track would be nice instead of being asked to purchase the song first. wow lol
Useful and free I love this one because it's free, and for most of the songs I try, it's accurate and very fast. I'm using this one overseas in Japan and Taiwan where Google music isn't a supported service so it doesn't seem to know local music that's not gone international, BUT it gets tunes that are available in other countries with Google music service almost perfectly. Cool
Cool, should be an app While this app works great and I have replaced Shazam with it, I agree with lots of the other reviews that it should also have its own app. I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to simply do that. However, I have to say I do like how it integrates into Google Now by saying "What's this song", cool! Pretty good
Magic Amazing! No matter where I am, or how bad the source material sounds, this thing figures it out. Last week a song was playing over a speaker up near the ceiling of an echoey store, and it got it in about 5 seconds. It wasn't even during a vocal section! Very impressive, and equally useful. Great job
A couple things I'd like to see: (1) a smaller widget and/or a icon that can be placed in a folder. (2) the ability to identify sound coming through headphones (SoundHound can do this, and makes it easy to identify and log songs from internet radio). Otherwise, this is awesome! Enjoy it!
Make it faster Don't get me wrong, this is easily the fastest of its sort, but I think you guys can speed it up a bit. It takes exactly the same amount of time to find a song on my old phone compared to my new phone. Maybe you could add more processing on our side or something to speed things up. Not really sure, but a faster processor should really bring up results faster. Pretty good
This one seemed not as obtrusive into the personal data mining info as Shazam or Sound Hound (Which is suprising for Google). Started working very well. Very useful. UPDATE 9/2017- SAMSUNG S8+; freezes during identification. I have to restart my phone to get the ID of the song. Please fix. Awesome
This one seemed to not be as obtrusive into the personal data mining info as say Shazam or Sound Hound (Which is suprising for Google). Started working very well. Did the ID most excellently. UPDATE 8/2017- SAMSUNG S8+; wants to work but seems to freeze during identification. I have to restart my phone to get the ID of the song. Please fix. Good
Truly Awesome! You can't beat this! Have you ever wondered who is singing that song you're hearing? Or maybe you want to know what the song is altogether. With this app it will let you know! It doesn't know 100% EVERY song, but almost all of them. It knows enough to get you by. You'll love it! NOTE: It's actually a WIDGET, Not an APP. So when you look for it after downloading, it'll be with WIDGETS Not the APPS. Perfect

UPDATE 8/2017- SAMSUNG S8+; wants to work but seems to freeze during identification. Sometimes with finagleing, can determine the song. Hard to get the results. Please fix. Must have
Great Resource, Could Use GPMAA Integration Does what it advertises well, but I wish I could add songs to my Google Play Music All Access collection instead of just going to the Play store. Minor issue, not worth docking a star over, but still guys. Integrate! wow lol
Works well, but 4x1 widget is too big, no room on my screen. This works well at identifying songs, but the 4.1 widget is too large, there is no room on any of my screens for it. It is the largest widget I've got. I'll keep it for now, but it will probably have to go to make room for other things that I'll use more often. Could this be made available as an app, or at least a 1x1, or 2x1 widget? Must have
Good but could be better Ever since I subscribed to Google's All Access I've been a huge fan of this app by Google. This app is able to recognize songs in multiple languages, and I've been able to add new songs to my playlist that I won't even be able to pronounce. However, since getting KitKat the app always disable after I restart my phone. Its a huge pain in the a** to hear a new song and suddenly realizing that I have to enable it in the appstore again. Fix it please Google! Highly Recommend.
App was perfect before upgrading to a phone with Android 7. It doesn't work anymore, either it will freeze while searching for a song or it will say it's offline. When are we getting a new updated version? Muito bom!
The best, in my opinion. If you're just looking for an ultra accurate, ultra dependable, clean uncluttered way of identifying songs - this is it. I've tried other well known ones, and they've become too cumbersome. Worth it!
3 stars for the light weight. I can't begin to explain how disappointed I am in this app (I mean widget.) I was so glad when I saw Google made a sound app but my excitement didn't last. I wasn't expecting much with the small file size, but I was expecting to be able to open the song in Google Play Music so I can actually listen to the song & add it to my library using my all access subscription! Also, It's nice to have a widget for fast access but I'd rather open an app than have a bunch of widgets on my home screen. love it
I have a problem with the app This app used to work great! at the beginning of the year but over the past few months it says that I have (no Internet connection) BUT I DO the phone I am using is a Galaxy S7 Marvelous
Samsung Note 3 running Android 4.4.4 First I'll say, VERY NICE LOOKING WIDGET! Nice to look at and functional. As reviewers have said it is limited to what is in Google play music. So it may not pick up every song out. Which is disappointing. But it is accurate if the song is recognized. I am a Google play subscriber so yes I would like to see some type of direct linkage between this and Google play. Other than that works as described and I like the detail they put into the widget. At time of this review app hasn't been updated since Oct2013.? Just wow
Check the description Last updated October 2013. Just like with the Google goggles app, they have lost interest. SoundHound is a much better app, quicker and more accurate. Shame seeing Google backing away from competing with them. 5 star
It works but... This app is accurate with popular music but when it comes to obscure music like many EDM dance tracks Shazam still takes the cake. Tested and proven. Fantastic
