If this year has given us any forecast into the tech space, it’s that Generative AI is taking over in 2024 with household names in the tech and electronics industries like Samsung and Google announcing the integration of Generative AI features in their smart products from the start of next year.

We saw Google’s advancements in the AI field with the launch of the Pixel 8. Now Google has launched an even more impressive Generative AI feature with its MusicLM program.

Google’s Music AI is an experimental model of text-to-music AI software that can generate music and tones based on your text description, ideas, and preferences. According to Google, users can “just type in a prompt like 'soulful jazz for a dinner party',” and MusicLM will create two versions of the song instantly.

While the new Music AI isn’t a hundred percent set yet, users can already have a taste of what to expect when it is fully functional and those who have tried the Music AI predict it will change how we listen to music forever.

In this guide, we explain all you need to know about Google’s new Music AI, including how it works and how you can test and use MusicLM.

What is Google AI Music Generator?

In January 2023, Google announced its new generative music AI program; MusicLM, an experimental AI tool that can generate music and tunes based on your text description.

During the announcement, Google explained that this model of MusicLM is a demo program designed to gauge people’s opinions and experience with the tool. Also, the music and user-end data generated by the AI tool will be used to further train the Music AI to provide better results.

While the new Google Music AI is available for public use, it is not yet commercialized. And you won’t find it on any app store. The only way to try MusicLM is to join a waitlist where you can test the tool at Ai Test Kitchen.

Currently, Google has no intention of commercializing this Music AI yet and to the best of our knowledge so far, MusicLM will not be integrated into Google’s smart devices yet, and for good reasons too. One of these reasons is the tendency for the AI tool to incorporate copyrighted material into the music generated.

Ever since the announcement of the MusicLM AI trial, people have raised concerns about copyright infringements since the source data used to train the AI tool is based on existing songs. As such, some of the music generated will be similar to existing ones, causing copyright infringement.

To prevent copyright infringement lawsuits, Google Music AI needs to be able to generate unique tones based on text without mirroring the effects of existing music.

Google says it has been working with musicians and hosting workshops to see how this new AI can be improved so it expands the boundaries of creativity and change how we listen to music.

Is Google MusicLM the Same as Dream Track

Google MusicLM is not the same as Dream Track. While both tools have similar working mechanisms, that’s just about where their similarities end.

Dream Track is a generative Music AI experiment from YouTube that features the voices of nine popular pop stars, including John Legend, Demi Lovato, Charlie Puth, and Troye Sivan. Unlike MusicLM which is purely instrumental, Dream Track features vocals.

Unlike MusicLM, which can generate tunes for several minutes at the same frequency, Dream Track only has a maximum of 30 seconds. When users type in the description of what they want to listen to, Dream Track generates a snippet of up to 30 seconds long based on the text description. The music generated can feature any of the nine artists' voices, making it exciting to use.

The downside here is Dream Track is only available to a select set of testers and we might not eventually get it. YouTube’s Global Head of Music, Lyor Cohen, and Toni Reid, Vice President of Emerging Experiences and Community, described Dream Track as “an experiment designed to help explore how the technology could be used to create deeper connections between artists and creators, and ultimately, their fans.”

How Does Google Music AI Work? Google MusicLM Explained!

Google MusicLM transforms written prompts into high-fidelity music files at a frequency of 24 Kilohertz (KHz). The tool approaches music generation as an ordered sequence-to-sequence modeling task using three pre-trained models; MuLan, w2v-BERT, and SoundStream to generate representations of an audio signal.

You should remember that this version of MusicLM is a demo or trial program, so its current features may be different from its final version.

Another thing you should know is Google MusicLM AI is only instrumental, meaning the songs generated don’t have vocals and you can only request musical instruments. That said, Google Music AI has gained top scores for its audio quality and ability to generate exactly what is asked for in the text prompt.

MusicLM Can Take Conditional Signals

MusicLM can take conditional signals beyond text. For instance, it can take a snapshot of you humming or whistling and use the sound recorded with the text description to generate music.

User reports also suggest that you can select the mood and tempo of the music. For instance, Google hinted you can tell MusicLM to generate jazz music for a dinner party, meaning you have control over the type of mood and genre of music you listen to as well.

When you click on MusicLM, you’ll be directed to a blank text field where you can enter a description of the type of music you want. You can request your preferred genre of music, speed or tempo, instruments used in the music, and other specifics.

Google Music AI then uses its machine language algorithm to decipher your text and create music files that match your requirements.

Google Music AI Produces More Than One Track

Google explained that the generative Music AI tool can generate two or more tracks based on your written instructions. Then you can listen to the tracks to select which one meets your requirements the best.

The track that you select gets a trophy and the tool is designed to record data between your written instructions and the music selected and uses the data collected to further improve its performance.

Downloading Tracks from MusicLM

You can also download the music generated from MusicLM. To download tracks from Google MusicLM AI, click on the menu tab or three dots and select download.

While we don’t know the full features and functions of Google Music AI yet, we do know its official version when released will be better than this current version and that leaves much to look forward to.

Next, let’s check out how you can test and use Google Music AI.
