While playing YouTube Music, do you frequently have trouble recalling the name or lyrics of your favourite song? If yes, worry not—Hum-to-search, the most recent addition to YouTube Music, is here to save you from this pain. With the help of this innovative function, users can identify songs by humming, singing, or playing the tune. Notably, the feature is exclusive to YouTube Music users on Android. It's said to be accessible for users on app version 7.02, although deployment is still in progress. Currently, there is no official announcement, but iOS users are likely to experience the humming function soon. To know more about this feature, read on.

Hum to Search: How to Use it?

In the YouTube Music app, users can enable the hum-to-search feature by hitting the magnifying glass search icon located in the upper-right corner. A new waveform icon will be displayed with the existing microphone icon for voice search. When users tap this icon, a search page with the instruction 'Play, sing, or hum a song' opens. Following that, Google's AI will assess your vocal style to the extensive song collection on YouTube Music. When the search query is completed, information about the song, artist, year, album, and artwork is shown. After that, users can select to listen to the music now or store it in their library for listening later.

Notably, this innovative feature first appeared on Google Search in 2020 before being incorporated into the YouTube app last year. Its addition to YouTube Music for Android is a solution for people who can't identify a song that is stuck in their head.

According to industry reports, Google began testing this feature on YouTube Music in March 2024, but it was not made available to the public until recently. The company reportedly plans to roll out the features in stages, so if you aren't seeing it on your smartphone yet, it could take a few days.
