Even as people in some nations argue over wearing masks in public, Google shared a ‘mask song’ that is a modified version of the nursery rhymes ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ to emphasise the importance of wearing a face cover.
Google says that if you say “Hey Google” to an Android device that has its AI assistant it will sing out the song so that you can learn the lyrics.
Here’s how the song goes:
“When in public, wear a mask. Just a teeny-weeny task.
It helps keep us safe and sound, health and care all around.
On your mouth and on your nose, good to cover both of those.”
People on social media were impressed by the tune and many praised the company for its efforts. Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:
Extremely catchy and easy to learn! Our very own Covid19 anthem! Thanks @Google

Earlier in March, Google Assistant was given a similar song about washing your hands for over 20 seconds.
It’s not the first time the tech giant has spoken about the importance of using masks. Earlier this month, Google dedicated its homepage doodle to remind people about basic safety precautions — wearing masks and maintaining social distancing.
