Google upgrades search features as it faces antitrust scrutiny

Google Search will help you identify that song stuck in your head

'As more locations become available, or if there are changes, we'll continue to update the information provided across Google Search, Assistant and Maps'.

Google Search can now find the name of a song simply by listening to you hum or whistle the tune.

The search engine has launched a 'Shazam for humming' tool, allowing anyone to hum a tune into their phone to work out what song it is without knowing the lyrics. Then begin buzzing for 10-15 seconds.

Google has also expanded its use of AI in search. Google has built machine learning models that can match the music to that unique "fingerprint".

You can also use it on your Google smart speaker, by first saying "Hey Google, what's this song?". The feature is already live, so you can give it a try.

The characteristic is at present obtainable in English on iOS and in additional than 20 languages on Android.
