YouTube Music Introduces Hum-to-Search Feature for Android Users

youtube music

YouTube Music has just rolled out an exciting new feature for Android users: the ability to search for songs by humming or singing. This long-awaited tool expands the search capabilities of the music streaming app, making it even easier for users to discover their favorite tunes.

How It Works

To access the hum-to-search feature, follow these simple steps:

  1. Open the YouTube Music app on your Android device.
  2. Tap the magnifying glass search icon in the top-right corner.
  3. Next to the existing microphone icon for voice search, you’ll now find a new waveform icon.
  4. Tap on the waveform icon to open a colorful search page that prompts you to “Play, sing, or hum a song.”

What to Expect

Once you start humming or singing, YouTube Music’s AI algorithms will analyze the audio and quickly provide results. The fullscreen results page will display essential information about the song, including:

  • Cover art
  • Song name
  • Artist
  • Album
  • Release year

This feature builds upon the Pixel’s Now Playing functionality, which uses AI to match the sound to the original recording. It’s a convenient way to identify songs without needing to know the lyrics or title.

Availability and Future Updates for YouTube Music

The hum-to-search feature is currently available on Android devices with version 7.02 of YouTube Music. Unfortunately, there’s no official word yet on when it will arrive for iOS users, but it’s likely to be coming soon.

Google previously introduced a similar tool for general search back in 2020, and the regular YouTube app also offers a comparable feature. Additionally, online music streaming platform Deezer released its own “hum-to-search” tool in 2022123.

So, whether you’re humming a catchy tune or trying to recall a song that’s been stuck in your head, YouTube Music’s new feature has you covered. Give it a try and discover your next favorite track! 🎵🎶
