Google steps up its game and surpasses Shazam and Spotify. If Shazam offers the possibility to search a song that is playing on the radio or inside a store by putting your phone close to the source, and on Spotify, you can find a song by inserting a phrase or words of the text, on Google, it is now possible to find the title of a song simply by whistling or humming the tune of the parts that you remember. Searching for the title of a long-searched song is now easier than ever: but how does it work and how to use this new feature?
This new feature is called “Hum to Search” and allows you to sing or “hum” the verse of a song whose title or artist you do not know. How? Just open the search engine app, tap the microphone icon and select the “Search for a song” option. Google will be able to recognize the song simply through the user’s whistle or hum (you need to do it for at least 10/15 seconds). Artificial intelligence combined with the cross-search of the Google algorithm will show a series of results with the songs most similar to the tune expressed by the user, as well as compatibility percentages of the song. All thanks to Google’s machine learning. The technology in question has been improved and perfected precisely to recognize songs through whistling and human singing.
The feature at the moment is only available on Android, but soon it will be added to iOS.
