  • The feature leverages AI to quickly recognize musical tunes.

Google’s YouTube Music is rolling out a new ‘hum-to-search’ feature for Android users, allowing them to identify songs by humming, singing, or playing melodies. This highly anticipated update follows months of testing and utilizes AI technology to recognize musical tunes accurately.

To use the feature, users simply need to tap the magnifying glass icon in the app and select the waveform icon next to the microphone. Then, they can hum, sing, or play the tune they have in mind. YouTube Music’s AI quickly analyzes the audio input and presents users with a full-screen page containing details like the song’s cover art, title, artist, album, and release year.

While similar features have been introduced by Google Search and other music streaming platforms in the past, the arrival of ‘hum-to-search’ on YouTube Music for Android is a welcomed addition for music enthusiasts. Although the feature is currently available for Android users, there’s anticipation for its eventual rollout to iOS devices in the near future.
