Google’s New ‘Hum To Search’ Feature Can Identify The Song Stuck In Your Head

Google’s New ‘Hum To Search’ Feature Can Identify The Song Stuck In Your Head

You know that infuriating feeling when you have a song stuck in your head but you don't know the lyrics to figure out the title and you can't even Shazam it as you don't have the actual song. Well the clever folks at Google have found a solution.

Say hello to the new 'hum to search' feature.

As long as you have a good grasp of the melody of said song, all you have to do is simply hum, whistle or sing the tune that's in your head, and it will use this new-fangled technology to try and work out what it is.

Genius!

That will stop us frantically humming into Shazam from now on because, let's face it, that has a 100 per cent fail record.

The new feature is available now in the Google app on both iOS and Android, or in Google Assistant - just ask Google "What's the song" or tap the newly added "search a song" button, and then hum (or whistle or sing) your tune.

Google will then show you the results it thinks the song might be alongside a percentage of the likelihood, and you can tap and listen to them until you figure it out.

According to The Verge, the app "transforms the audio into a number-based sequence representing the song's melody," and the tech has been trained to pick up singing, whistling and humming, as well as studio recordings.

It does this by stripping back all instrumental aspects and focuses on the numeric sequence, allowing it to basically know what a song would sound like being hummed.
