Masks have been necessary while stepping out of the home due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and for the past few months, many social media pages have shared public awareness posts urging people to wear a mask. Now Google has come up with a peppy song to spread the message.

The search engine giant shared a video on their Instagram page in which a mask-wearing emoji is seen dancing on the song and explaining how a mask protects one from the deadly virus. What makes the video even more interesting is that the advisory is sung in the tune of a nursery rhyme.

The search engine giant wrote in the caption that one can take the help of Google Assistance to sing the song. “Sing along with Google Assistant. Just say, "#HeyGoogle, sing the mask song” to learn the new song,” the caption read.
