Song Stuck in Your Head? Just Hum it on Google Tune-Based Search Now


In a delight for music lovers, Google has announced a new capability where you can hum, whistle or sing a melody to find out the song that has been stuck in your head -- no lyrics, artist name or perfect pitch required.


We'll show you the most likely options based on the tune," said Krishna Kumar, Senior Product Manager, Google Search.


The models are trained to identify songs based on a variety of sources, including humans singing, whistling or humming, as well as studio recordings.


Similarly, the machine learning models recognise the melody of the studio-recorded version of the song, which "we can use to match it with a person's hummed audio".


The company launched 'Now Playing' on the Pixel 2 in 2017, using deep neural networks to bring low-power recognition of music to mobile devices.


In 2018, the company brought the same technology to the SoundSearch feature in the Google app and expanded the reach to a catalog of millions of songs.
