Pixel 6 can't tell the difference between Adele singing and a toilet flushing
One of the features on the Google Pixel handsets that users really enjoy is the "Now Playing" app. When there is a song playing in the background, the app captures a few seconds of the tune and compares it to its on-device library in an effort to discover the name of the song and the artist. To recognize songs better, Now Playing collects some info, like the percentage of times Now Playing correctly recognizes music. The feature only collects this info if you have shared usage and diagnostics with Google.

Reddit user says that when his Pixel 6 Pro hears a toilet flushing, it thinks that it is Adele singing Rumor Has It

Someone on Reddit just shared an interesting if not totally embarrassing Now Playing screw up. Whenever this Redditor's Pixel 6 Pro hears a toilet flush, it says that it is hearing the Adele song Rumor Has it. Other users have also found that the noise they make brushing their teeth in the morning with an electric toothbrush has their Pixel 6 thinking that they are listening to Dream of Arrakis from the Dune soundtrack.

Another Redditor said that his Pixel phone thought that the song he was listening to was Copacabana by Barry Manilow when in fact, the song came from the video game Forza Horizon 5 which definitely did not include Copacabana in its soundtrack. In perhaps one of the biggest AI screwups, a Pixel 5 analyzed the sound of a jackhammer being used for construction as music from artists like Imagine Dragon, The White Stripes, and Dresden Dolls.

One Pixel 3 user says that his phone tells him that his electric toothbrush is playing REM's The Great Beyond. Yet another Pixel 3 user said that when characters on the X factor television show started yelling at each other, the phone thought that U2's With or Without you was playing.

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have taken Google's handsets to a completely new level this year where they can be considered serious iPhone challengers. Google has packed the phones with its own Google Tensor chipset filled with AI capabilities that allow the handsets to offer the Magic Cleaner feature that removes unwanted people and items from the background of photos.

Motion mode gives the illusion of movement by blurring the background of a photo. Live Translate delivers translated text in real time in English, French, German, Italian, and Japanese. Unlike Pixel models in the past, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro offers users a real premium handset with a real premium feeling that actually does rival the iPhone 13 line and the Galaxy S22 series.
