Google Assistant can now identify songs you hum

Of course you have, we all have, and now Google Assistant is making that a whole lot easier, as a recent update means you can hum to it.

Hum for around 10-15 seconds and Google Assistant will then use machine learning to try and identify the song.

It will provide you with a selection of likely matches, so even if you don’t hum it perfectly there’s a good chance one of the options will be right.

In our limited testing it seems to work well – it correctly identified Modern Love by David Bowie, Blue (Da Ba Dee) by Eiffel 65, and Happy Birthday.

Though iOS users have a similar tool powered by Siri, allowing the assistant to recognize spoken or sung lyrics to songs, so this Google feature could perhaps be a response to that.

The tech giant also announced that it’s massively expanding the live busyness information feature of Google Maps – a tool that’s all the more important in a socially distanced world.
