If a song is stuck in your head, don’t worry, Google has introduced a new feature during a streamed event a day before. This app/feature allows users to sing or whistle for 15 seconds to let this Tech giant identify the song. “Google was asked 100 million times a month to identify the song”, said Aparna, a leader at Google for more than a decade.
It was announced by the Google Blog “The Keyword” that “Hum to search” launched on both Google app for iOS and Android in English and more than 20 other languages.

You can tap on the newly added “Search a Song” button and then hum your favourite song which irritates you because you cannot recall the lyrics.
The Music-identify app is an A.I. expanded to the already Google App Pixel 2 which allows phones to identify music without an internet connection.
“Google says that the feature works by using machine learning models to transform the audio into a number-based sequence representing the song’s melody.”www.theverge.com
Senior Product Manager Krishna Kumar said, “You don’t need perfect pitch to use this feature.”

Many of us could find any English song by using this tool. But the real test of the Hum feature was to identify Hindi/Urdu songs with the right match…
