    Default "What's this song" not working

    Anyone else having issues with "What's this song"?

    If I ask Google Now 'What's this song?' instead of listening for music it does a Google search for 'What's this song'

    I tried deleting the data and clearing the cache within Google Search but that didn't work. It still works if I do it on my Nexus 7.

    Worked fine for me last night when I asked, "Okay Google Now, what song is this?"

    It's specifically looking for the phrase what song is this not what's this song. If you're asking it what's this song it won't work.

    I just tested "OK Google Now" -

    - "What song is this?"
    - "What is this song?"
    - "What's this song?"

    All three queries brought up the Sound Search listening feature.

    Actually, "What's this song?" and "What song is this?" are both valid, although, neither one is working for me right now.

    Okay. I am glad that it is working for you, but it is not working for me. I'm trying to find a solution.

    My reply was to ballisticn8 who said that the phrases you're saying aren't supposed to be working.

    Strange but I just tried this today while I was driving and it didn't work for me either. Like the OP, it just did a search for "What song is this".

    I've used it several times in the past but it's not working me now.

    EDIT: I just tried, "What's playing" and it worked!

    "What song is this", "What's this song", "Listen to song" or "Listen to music" do not work for me.

    That is strange as I used it in that time period you did and it worked fine. Maybe a temporary server error.

    It actually started working for me again so it must've been a problem on the server side like you said. Still strange though.

    'What's this song?' worked for me and I learned that T-Mo is using Lady Hawke's 'Blue Eyes' on one of their tv ads! lol
