Search engine Google makes it possible to find a song by humming or whistling the melody. The company announced this during a livestream.

Google will search within videos

The whistling or humming sound is compared to the tones of music tracks to identify which track the viewfinder is referring to. That way it becomes possible to find music that someone has forgotten the title or artist of.

The new search function uses smartphone microphones to record the hum or whistle. Android phones can find songs in multiple languages, including English and Dutch. The iPhone will first identify only English-language music.

The search engine has been showing videos on websites such as YouTube in the results for some time, but will now also search within those videos. Artificial intelligence (AI) is going to watch the videos to make that happen.

For example, if you are looking for a specific goal in a football match, you can see a video in the search results at the time it was made. According to Google, the AI ​​is smart enough to understand the true meaning behind a video.

Google also wants to show more clearly what a company is doing during the corona crisis within the search results. This shows, for example, whether a store requires visitors to book in advance.

It should also be easier to see within the search engine how busy it is in a specific location to help avoid crowds.

The company has not said exactly when the options will go live. Usually, Google gradually makes new options available to its users.
