Google has unveiled a new “hum to search” feature that allows users to find a song by simply humming or singing its melody.
The feature is already part of the Google app and can be accessed by tapping the mic icon and saying “What’s this song?” or pressing the “Search a song” button. Upon activating it, a user just needs to hum or sing for 10 to 15 seconds before Google compares the melody with similar songs.
After analyzing the tune, Google will show potential matches. Once a user selects a result, they will be presented with more information on the song and artist such as music videos and lyrics.
“Hum to search” is currently available in English on Apple’s iOS and in over 20 languages on Google’s Android.
