How does this work? Pick up your smartphone and head over to g.co/SoundsofIndia. First, you get to hear the national anthem. Then you get to sing the national anthem while the lyrics play on a screen which gets highlighted to help you sing in rhythm. Once you're done, the web app gives you an option to choose the instrument in which you'd like your voice to convert.

Google on its blog says, "We can’t wait to bring to you the culmination of this experience, so look out for something very special coming your way on 15th August 2020 -- the 73rd anniversary of India’s Independence."
