An AI-powered singing challenge that rates how closely your singing matches the voice of Freddie Mercury

People love singing with Freddie Mercury, but can you sing like Freddie too? We made an AI-powered singing challenge to find out. This experiment uses new, on-device machine learning models developed by Google Research to see how close your timbre, pitch, and melody are to Freddie’s. Your audio doesn’t get uploaded to servers to be analyzed, so your vocals stay private.

FreddieMeter was made with The Mercury Phoenix Trust, a charity founded by Brian May, Roger Taylor, and their manager Jim Beach in memory of Freddie Mercury, who died in 1991 from AIDS-related causes. In the last 27 years, the Trust has funded over 1,000 projects across 56 countries in the global battle against HIV/AIDS, giving away over $17 million.
