As a music lover, I know what distracts us the most often.
An earworm was playing in my mind, but I couldn’t remember the name of that song!
Did this ever happen to you?
Well, Bud Google has a solution. If a song is stuck in your head, you can hum the tune, whistle, or sing a part. Then it will discover the song you were trying to find.
Also, if a good song playing around you may secretly turn on Google to know the name of the track.
I found this really helpful to identify foreign language songs, BGM, and EDM types of music.
In this article, I will guide you on how to use Google Hum to Identify an unknown Song or Music in a creative way.

How to use Google Hum
Google Hum is also known as Search for a Song. This new feature is similar to Reverse Image search. Where you could upload pictures to know about the objects.
Follow these steps to Hum music:
- Step 1 Click on the mic icon of the Google app widget.
- Step 2 Now the Voice search will be started. Don’t start humming right here.
Click on the ‘Search for a Song’ Option.
- Step 3 Now when you see this screen “Play, hum, and sing” then you can start melody the song or record from another device. Let’s try to hum in Despacito tune…
Using Google Assistant
Music Detection may be the latest feature for the Google app, but it was present in Google Assistant for a long time. The fact is only a few people knew about it.
Well, instead of following all the above steps, you may use Google Assistant to identify songs.
Don’t know about Google Assistant yet? Here is the complete guide.
Follow these steps:
- Step 1 Enable your Google Assistant by saying “Hey Google or Ok Google”
- Step 2 As always you have to give a command. Say “What’s the song?”
Even you can say “Whats the song playing around me?” All these commands do the same work.
- Step 3 Again when you see the screen “Play, sing or hum a song” you can start melody the music.
Right now Google Hum is limited to Android and IOS devices. Maybe in the future, we see the Web version, especially for PC users.
Your Android must be Marshmallow (6.0) or a newer version to run this feature. Technically Google automatically added the Search for a Song option for all Smartphones. But if you couldn’t find it, then you should manually update the Google app from Playstore
