You can now get Google Pixel’s music recognition feature on other Android phones — here’s how

Introduced on the Google Pixel 2 and present right up to the current Pixel 5, Google’s Now Playing feature is a handy tool for identifying songs you hear while out and about and might want to listen to later. The only problem is that it’s always been a Pixel-exclusive feature — until now.

As spotted by XDA Developers, GitHub user Kieron Quinn has ported Now Playing to Android in general. Installing the Ambient Music Mod is a little more tricky than simply downloading an app, but it does promise the same song-identifying functionality as Now Playing. And it even uses Google’s song database.
