Google has added a neat Christmas trick to its Google Now/Search app for Android and iOS, offering users karaoke support to meet their caroling-related needs.
By saying “Ok Google Now, let’s go caroling,” you’ll get to choose from a list of Christmas carols on your device, which can be played karaoke-style. That means only the music is actually played, with the lyrics displayed on the screen just as they would be on a karaoke machine.
The feature is especially handy if you don’t know all the lyrics of some of the popular carols out there, as you’d still be able to sing-along with tour friends in your caroling trips this Christmas. Not to mention it certainly beats searching just for the lyrics of a song on your mobile devices.
The video above, via Phandroid, shows you the feature in action. In case you aren’t already using Google Now on your device(s), here are more details on Google Now, including available Google Now cards and initial Android setup for Google’s voice-based service.
