5. If for some reason the function is unable to identify the song, the message “Unable to find a match” will be displayed. When you tap “Try again”, it will be possible to redo the search.

It is worth remembering that the identification of the song by singing or whistling can also be done through the Google Assistant. In this case, just ask the virtual assistant “What is the song?” and repeat the remaining steps to perform the search.
