Your Android phone now sings to remind you to wash hands, wear masks


Google has found a fun method to remind people to wash their hands and wear a mask in order to stay safe from coronavirus infection. Apart from working on Covid-19 notifications, Google Assistant now sings a song to remind you to wash your hand and wear a mask. While Android phone users have Google Assistant by default on their phones, iPhone users can also get the Assistant app to hear the new Google song.
The moment you call Assistant and say “Sing me a song”, Google will start singing a song either related to wearing a mask or washing your hands. The most common song is “Wash, wash, wash your hands for 40 second”. Assistant has learned another new song to encourage you to wear a mask in public and it goes like: “When in public, wear a mask. Just a teeny, weeny task. It helps keep us safe and sound…”

The songs will bring a smile on your face as it sounds like nursery rhymes. And Google has actually taken the pain of getting the lyrics right and even rhyme it too. You can pause the sing and read the lyrics as well and you can even ask Google to “help you wash your hands” to replay the song.
Interestingly, Google makes it clear in the song that it is to cover both your nose and mouth with a mask to avoid spreading the disease or risk catching it.
Meanwhile, Google is planning to add Messenger Chat heads-like feature to its Google App. With Android 11 Beta preview release, the company has already showcased the new Bubbles feature that will maximize the multi-tasking capabilities of the operating system.
