    I'd love to free up one of my screens from What's This Song widget (mainly because it's not re-sizable and is an eyesore on Nexus 6) so I was testing the same feature built right into Google Search bar.
    Basically you tap it and SOMETIMES you get a second icon (on the popup) to recognize a song. But for some reason it only displays this icon reliably on the second attempt. I rarely see it on the first attempt so it kinda kills this nice feature for me.

    Does anyone else experience the same? I'm on Nexus 6.

    You can also use the voice command (or type in) "what's this song;" does the same thing.

    I know but I don't want to scream into my phone if I am at a loud place or somewhere I don't want to talk. Typing is also just a workaround. Just curious why this icon doesn't always show up.

    I'm with you, just pointing out alternatives. I've never liked the sound search widget; it's too big, and it shouldn't need to exist at all with Google already baking its search bar into the launcher.

    What about using Shazam or Sound Hound?

    Definitely not. I simply want to recognize a song and go to Google Music to purchase it. I don't need a ton of bloat that comes with apps you mentioned. Basically, I'd rather use Google's What's This Song widget.
