The technology of mapping sounds to a database of identified songs by singing, humming, and whistling – rather than just lyrics – has been around for more than a decade and has been a staple in the SoundHound music app.
To get started with the new feature of Google, grab your phone and open the latest version of the Google app or the Google Search widget. Then tap microphone Symbol and say “What kind of song is that?” You can also tap Find a song Button. Finally, start humming, singing, or whistling to get your results.
If you use, just say “Hey Google, what’s that song?” and then start humming the melody. Google will show you the most likely results based on the melody you hummed. You can choose the song to listen to and see if that’s what is on your mind.
Google announced the new feature on Thursday and started rolling it out to the iPhone worldwide ($ 699 on Amazon) and Android users. It is currently available in English for iPhone users and in more than 20 languages for Android. Note that this new tool will only work on mobile devices, so it won’t currently work on your device .
