Can you sing like Freddie Mercury? Queen and YouTube help you discover it with FreddieMeter, a singing challenge developed by Google with the support of Artificial Intelligence and charity.
FreddieMeter is a tool created to allow fans around the world to know how much their voice matches that of the legendary Queen frontman.
Analyzes the intonation, the timbre and the melody of the singer, to then assign a score included between 0 and 100.
The singing challenge develops in four steps. The first is Sing (you choose one of the four Queen songs featured in Bohemian Rhapsody, Don’t Stop Me Now, Somebody to Love and We Are the Champions). Then there is Share (once you get the score you share) and Challenge (using the hashtag #FreddieChallenge on social channels you can challenge three friends). Finally the Donate option, with which the Mercury Phoenix Trust can be supported.
Freddiemter, in fact, was developed with the support of this charitable organization founded by Brian May, Roger Taylor and Jim Beach to raise awareness and finance the fight against HIV and celebrate the 44th anniversary of the first live performance of Bohemian Rhapsody by the band.
Google Creative Lab and Google Research have created FreddieMeter using the new machine learning models available on devices. FreddieMeter is optimized for single voices and works on desktop, Android and iPhone devices. Here is the link to the initiative website: https://freddiemeter.withyoutube.com/.
