Google Is Killing Hold Music
Google is effectively killing hold music and I can’t say I’m upset about it.
When you call a toll-free number and a business puts you on hold, Google Assistant can now wait on the line for you.
Google Assistant will notify you with sound, vibration, and a prompt on screen when a real person once is on the line and ready to talk. That means less wasted time and a whole lot less time listening to hold music.
Like most Google Assistant rollouts it is starting with an early preview on Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a (5G) in the U.S. But expect more phones and platforms to be added in the coming months.
Goodbye, hold music.
We will NOT miss you.
It wasn’t that popular anyway, though.
