Surely you have ever happened to remember only the melody of a song you like, no headline or text to help you investigate until you find it. Here's our usual lifeguard, Google, who has a very useful feature for finding songs even if you only know their melody.
This tool, also available in Google Assistant, allows you to hum or whistle a song so that the search engine Google tell you what exactly it is.
This way you will avoid having to download applications that perform the same function to your mobile phone, such as the popular Shazam, owned by Apple since 2018. Go prepare your vocal cords, because we explain below step by step how to find a song by humming or whistling it on Google.

How to find a song by humming it on Google
Say goodbye to using apps like Shazam or SoundHound to find the title of a song for which you only know the melody. For this there is already the Google search engine, one tool you shouldn't download, but which performs the same function as the apps mentioned above.
As announced by Google, its search engine integrates a machine-learning-based tool that identifies the song you sing to it, even if it's just whistling or humming. You just have to sing the song for about 10 to 15 seconds for the search engine to tell you the title and the author of the song you have in mind.
For Google, each melody is like a fingerprint. Therefore, what he has done is to create learning patterns that can relate your hums and whistles to the correct fingerprint, that is, to the melody they really belong to.
After the tests carried out on our Android, we can assure you that this function works with great precision and speed. Next, let's explain step by step how to find songs on Google:
- Open the Google app or search for the search widget of Google.
- Click the microphone icon and say "What song is this?" .
- Sing or whistle the melody of the song for about 10-15 seconds.
- After this time, Google will identify the songs most similar to the melodies you sang and will show you the results sorted by highest to lowest probability of coincidence.
- Click on the correct result and you can consult all the information of the song, for example if you have a video clip or its full text.
Steps you need to follow to find a song on Google.
