YouTube Music for Android has finally rolled out a highly anticipated feature that lets users hum to find a song on YouTube Music. This tool allows users to search for songs by humming, singing, or playing the melody on an instrument; initially reported by 9to5Google, the feature has been in testing since March and is now available to the public.

How to Use the ‘Hum to Find a Song on YouTube Music’ Feature

To utilize the hum to find a song on YouTube Music, users need to tap the magnifying glass icon located in the top-right corner of the app. Look for the waveform icon next to the microphone icon; by tapping the waveform icon and starting to hum or sing, users will be presented with a fullscreen results page. The page provides detailed information about the song, including the cover art, song name, artist, album, release year, and other relevant data. The innovative tool is built upon the Pixel’s Now Playing feature, using AI technology to match the sound to its original recording.

The feature is available as a server-side update with version 7.02 of YouTube Music for Android. While there is no confirmed release date for iOS users, it is expected to be available in the near future.

Expanding the Boundaries of Music Search

Although this type of feature is new to YouTube Music, it is not entirely unprecedented. Google Search introduced a similar tool in 2020, and the regular YouTube app added a comparable functionality last year. Also, Deezer, another online music streaming platform, launched its own “hum to search” tool in 2022.

The integration of this feature into YouTube Music for Android marks a significant step in enhancing the user experience, allowing music lovers to discover new songs and artists effortlessly. Whether you are trying to find that catchy tune stuck in your head or exploring new music, humming to search adds a convenient and enjoyable way to connect with your favorite tracks.
