The new Hum to Search feature requires nothing more than humming or singing to find a song.
- Google has stated that users do not need to have perfect pitch or be exact in their rendition of the song they are trying to find.
- A list of possible matching songs will be automatically generated by Google when the feature is used.
- A record of the humming or whistling will be given to Google's AI to further improve search quality.
- Some speculate that Google's Hum to Search is meant to compete with Shazam, a free audio-based music search service owned by Apple.
- The feature is currently limited to mobile devices - Android and iOS.
