Song guessing challenges where people have to guess the song as quickly as possible using only a short clip.

What it does

The app plays a 5 second sound clip and then provides the user with 3 options to choose from. If the user guesses correctly they gain a point.

How we built it

The game uses google actions and can be played entirely through voice commands. The song clips are imported by using the Spotify API to select a currently popular song. The selection of songs is completely random each time.

Challenges we ran into

Integrating the Node.js app with the google actions API. We spent a significant amount of time trying to get https requests to work on an AWS server before just switching to Google Firebase.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Successfully importing and playing back Spotify music clips using the google home.

What we learned

Project modules should be independent to ensure effective collaboration. Regularly asking for help from mentors can significantly speed up development.

What's next for Guess the Song - A Google Actions App

Different difficulties, song selections based on user selected categories, multiplayer between two people.
