New Google ‘Hum To Search’ Feature, Allows You Find Any Song!
Google is adding a new ‘hum to search’ feature to its search tools. The feature will allow you to hum any song that’s stuck in your head, and then Google will use machine learning techniques to try to find it.
Sounds cool! Especially as we’ve all been in moments when we forget everything about a song except a few lines of melody and its often annoying as that’s the only thing that remains stuck in our heads. With the ‘hum to search’ feature, you can just Google it!
The new feature is available on the Google app on both iOS and Android, it is also accessible via Google Assistant. All you need to do is ask Google ‘What’s the song’ or tap the newly added ‘search a song’ button, and then hum the melody in your head. Google will then show you results of likely matches. You can then listen to the results by tapping on them.

The ‘hum to search’ feature is available in just English on iOS and in more than 20 languages on Android. Google plans to add more languages in the future.
According to Google, the feature works by using its machine learning models to transform the audio into a number-based sequence representing the song’s melody, after which it then compares it to existing songs.
Google says that it trains the machine learning models on a variety of sources, including humans singing, whistling or humming, as well as studio recordings. It also strips away song features like the instruments and vocal quality to focus just on the numeric sequence being searched. This means the ‘hum to search’ feature works if the searcher is tone-deaf or has the perfect pitch.
