Google is coming for your Shazaam. At it's Pixel 2 event on Wednesday, the company revealed an always-on music identification feature for its newest handset. It detects ambient songs playing around you, then leverages the Pixel 2's onboard machine learning capability to compare that sound structure to a database of more than 10,000 popular tracks and figure out what it is you're hearing. Best of all, the database is stored locally so the entire recognition process requires zero interaction with Google's servers, preserving your privacy and ensuring it'll work even if you don't have an internet connection.
