Now you can hum and search Google for songs you don’t remember (but can’t forget)


If you’ve ever had a song stuck in your head but don’t remember enough lyrics to search for it, Google has a solution: the search hum. Google introduced a new search feature on Thursday that allows users to search for songs by humming several bars, in an effort to help you identify music. Video above: Seven useful Google search features you may not have known about. This feature is now part of the Google and Google Assistant mobile apps, where you can say “what’s that song?” (First add “Hey Google” to Google Assistant) and then buzz, whistle, or sing for 10 to 15 seconds. The results will include several likely tracks along with a search engine estimate of how likely each one is the one you are looking for. Google has introduced a feature that was announced, along with several other new features related to online search. The event will be available first in English for Apple’s iOS and in more than 20 languages ​​on Google’s Android mobile platform. According to Google, users may not have the perfect pitch for this feature to work. Hum-to-search is not a brand new idea – for example, SoundHound offers a hum recognition feature – although it is new to Google. Like many other Google search menus, this feature uses machine learning: The software basically analyzes the melody you’re buzzing (or singing or whistling) and turns it into a sequence of numbers that can then be compared to a pile of digitized songs to find some that look like similarly. The company has been working for several years to use artificial intelligence to recognize music. This feature can be in high demand: Aparna Chennapragada, Google’s vice president, who introduced her during Google’s streaming event on Thursday, said people ask Google “what song is playing” almost 100 million times each month.
