Google launched its latest invention which allows users to easily identify a song without searching the entire lyrics or the title. All you need to do is hum, whistle, or sing for 10-15 seconds into the microphone icon then Google’s technology takes the song’s melody and turns it into a numbers-based sequence.
From there, the sequence can be used to “identify songs based on a variety of sources, including humans singing, whistling or humming, as well as studio recordings,” Google announced.
The results are based on the tune. Once the results pop up, the user can pick the song they think best matches their search.
Along with the special algorithm, this can help you find related-searches such as the song lyrics, music videos, song analyses, and even any available covers for the song. There is also a link attached to listen to the song on major streaming services.
On October 15, Google noted that users need not worry about their musical capabilities, “You don’t need perfect pitch to use this feature,” said Krishna Kumar, Senior Product Manager of Google Search.
The new feature works with the Google Assistant app and is available on iOS in English and on Android in more than 20 languages. However, the company hopes to expand it to more languages.
