How is that song that says “lala lalala lalalala”? It’s pretty hard to tell if we’re reading it, isn’t it? After all, if there is a chance that someone will recognize the name of the song we are humming, they will have to listen to the hum. Well, Google Search now recognizes songs when we hum them to it.
The function is called Google Hum which, in English, means Google Hum, so it is quite explicit in what it does. Those who have ever gone through the frustration of not being able to know what that song is that is stuck in their heads can now rest knowing what they have in Google to an ally.
Google Hum is a dream come true
This is a totally common and frequent situation: we have a song stuck in our head and nobody knows what song we mean. Because our humming abilities aren’t faithful enough to the song we’re trying to figure out or because no one can remember it, either.
And although Google Hum is not entirely accurate, it is a feature that we have been waiting for years and years and that will undoubtedly improve over time. And the best of all? That Google Hum is now available on all Android and iOS smartphones that have Google Search.
All we have to do is open Google Search or Google Assistant and say, “What is this song?” and then start humming the melody we want to name.
Google Search now recognizes songs by humming them to them thanks to a complex algorithm that allows it to recognize the sound information entered into the microphone and check it against an extensive database of popular songs. We hope that this database will continue to expand because this is a must-have feature.
A singular detail is that the algorithm developed by Google allows us to hum not only the main melodies, which are usually those of the singers, but we can also hum instruments and these also have the possibility of being identified since Google Hum analyzes each line melodic of the songs in your database.
