New Google feature allows you to search for a song by humming

We all known how annoying it can be to have an ear worm rattling around our brain.

That little tune that we can’t quite place can be the source of endless frustration.

But Google might be about to put an end to that, which will be music to many ears.

The tech giant is introducing a feature that will make naming tunes a lot easier.

In fact, you won’t even need to know the lyrics.

All you’ll have to do is hum the melody and Google will try and place the song.

The Hum to Search feature will allow you to outline the basic tune of the song, with the search engine identifying the rest.

The feature is available on the Google App for both iOS and Android.

You can also ask Google Assistant – just say “what’s the song” and then hum the tune.

So, assuming you can hold something resembling the tune, you can hum it out loud for Google.

You will then be met with a series of results that Google thinks your attempt sounds like, and you can check to see if your ear worm is there.

Google uses machine to “transform the audio into “transform the audio into a number-based sequence representing the song's melody”, according to reports.

The software was modelled on a “variety of sources, including humans singing, whistling or humming, as well as studio recordings.”

The new feature is available today in English on iOS, and in more than 20 languages on Android. It'll be adding more and more as it goes along.
