What is Now Playing on Pixel?

As you can see, the Google Pixel can listen to background music without having to send the data to a third party – and determine if something is a song. If it’s a song, your Pixel will search through its ever-changing catalog of offline music and attempt to find one. Because every piece has what’s known as a “digital fingerprint,” the Pixel will go through its library and apply machine learning to try to find it. Based on your region, you might find that you have a distinct catalog than someone from an area or continent.

At any given moment, depending on your location, there could be as many as 500MB of fingerprints on the Pixel ready to be matched with a nearby song. But your Pixel does not all the time listening. To help save battery, the Pixel has been programmed to make every 60 seconds or so to search for any music playing. This is why users can identify the songs they want to play on their lock screen.

If you are pleased with what you are hearing and want to know more, hit the notification at the bottom of the lock screen or within your notification shade. By expanding it, you can allow yourself to love the song and tell your future self that was looking back on your Now Playing history, and you enjoy the music.

How to turn it on/off now? Playing with your Pixel

Here’s how to ensure that the feature is turned on/off:

  1. Go to Settings, Swiping down two times from the home screen, and press the settings button in your Google Pixel.

Your Pixel’s Playing History is Now Playing

The best part about Now Playing is that the song IDs are all saved in a secure location to be retrieved later. There’s no limit on the number of identities your Pixel can keep in its”Now Playing” history. This means that you could find music from an entire year ago that you forgot about. Neat, right?

So, how can you locate the details of your Now Playing history? There are several ways to do it. The most straightforward method is to tap the tiny Now Playing notification that appears when your Pixel detects a song within the background. After unlocking your phone, you’ll be taken to Google Pixel’s Now Playing history page. Another way to access it is via Settings. Here’s how:

  1. In your Google Pixel, start Settings on your Pixel by Swiping down two times from the home screen and pressing the settings button.
  2. Scroll down to find Sounds and vibrations.
  3. Look for and tap Now Playing.
  4. Tap Now Playing the history.

Then, you can browse through and review the songs that been playing over the years close to your. You can tap on any of them and perform some things. The song can be played by using the streaming service you prefer, YouTube, or YouTube Music. You can also browse and share songs that you like to save.

The Pixel’s capability to detect and save the most recent music played in nearby playback is a great feature, and can be very useful. There’s always that one song that you hear that you wish you could recognize it, save it, and play it back later. It’s the Google Pixel. Google Pixel lets you do exactly this.
