Have you tried to remember a song but couldn’t? “Google” launches the “Hammering” application to search for songs that I forgot
A number of song fans love a song, but after a short time they forget its title and perhaps its performer, but some of its tunes remain stuck in their heads, and they just humble about it. Solution: Hum to search.
According to a report by the network “CNN” The American company, Google unveiled a new search feature, Thursday, October 15, 2020, that allows users to search for songs by repeating the humming or humming of some tapes, in an attempt to help you identify the music.
According to the same network, “the feature is now part of the Google smartphone app and Google Assistant, where you can say“ What is this song? ”(Add the phrase“ Hey Google ”first on the Google Assistant), then hum, whistle, or sing for a while 10 to 15 seconds.
The results will include several possible songs, along with the search engine’s estimate of how likely the song you are searching for.
For its part, the company said that this feature, which was announced along with many other search-related functions, during an online event held by the company, will be available first in English on Apple’s iOS system, and in more than 20 languages on Google’s Android mobile system. .
Users do not need a perfect presentation in order to operate the feature, according to Google.
You might say that this idea is not entirely new. The answer is: Yes, Hum-to-search is not a completely new idea – SoundHound, for example, offers a hum recognition feature – even though it is new to Google.
Like many Google search offerings the feature uses machine learning: essentially the software analyzes the note you sing (or whistle), and converts it into a series of numbers that can then be compared to a large number of digital songs to find the few that sound similar.
The company has also been using artificial intelligence to recognize music for a number of years.
In this context, it is believed that this feature may be in great demand, as Abana Shibagrana, Vice President of Google, said that people ask Google “what song is playing” nearly 100 million times each month.
