If I ask "ok Google, what song is this?" it will tell me. However, I prefer to use SoundHound (because I have the paid version, and it stores my searches for later retrieval, and it links to spotify automatically).

Is there a voice command that asks "ok Google, ask SoundHound what song this is"?

I can't even seem to open the app." open SoundHound" yields a Google now result screen (where the first result is the app itself), but it does not open it - probably because the paid app name is "SoundHound infinity " (the symbol for infinity).


Unfortunately, you don't have such command right now. But you can expect it to be added in the future. Google is already working on it. More information here.

    I remember reading this a few weeks ago - but isn't this blog post for the cards? I would have assumed that the voice commands are different than the cards.

  • Agree with @wild_oscar. From what I know, the update is for Google Now Card, but not voice command. I also researched about this, and so far, there is no API for developer to integrate the voice command. There are 3rd-party apps (Commandr, Tasker+AutoVoice) that can add command to Google Now, but with current specification by OP, I think it's still impossible for SoundHound to identify a song directly.
