Song stuck in your head? YouTube music can now help you find it just by humming

YouTube Music introduces new AI feature allowing users to find songs by humming or singing, even without knowing the lyrics. The feature has been part of Google app for over 4 years and now spotted in YouTube Music app for Android.

YouTube Music has finally introduced the Hum to Search future which has been part of the Google and YouTube application for a long time.Premium

We've all had that nagging feeling when a song you can't remember the name or lyrics to gets stuck in your head. Well, YouTube Music users may now have a solution to that problem with a new AI-powered feature that lets you find those 'stuck' songs by simply humming or singing them, even if you don't know the exact lyrics.

While the feature is new to YouTube Music, it has been part of the Google application on Android for over 4 years and was also integrated into the official YouTube application last year. But now a report from 9to5Google has officially spotted it in the YouTube Music application for Android (with version 7.02 or higher). Despite updating to the latest version of the YouTube Music application, we couldn't find the song search feature on several devices, but given that it's already part of the YouTube and Google apps, it may only be a matter of time before it's generally available to all YouTube Music users.

How to find songs on YouTube Music by humming? 

To find the song search feature on your device, navigate to the top right corner of the YouTube Music app and click the search icon. You should now see a new wave-like icon next to the microphone sign. Clicking on the new icon will take you to a page with the words 'Play, sing or hum a song' at the top and the wave-like animation continuing at the bottom of the screen.

As mentioned, we weren't able to try out the feature on the YouTube Music app, but our experience with the YouTube and Google app suggests that the AI algorithm should be able to find the right song in most cases.

On YouTube Music, if the app is able to find the song you want, it will display a full-page result that includes the cover art, song, name, artist, album, year and the icon to save it offline or to a playlist.
