We’ll desperately consult family, friends, the internet in our vain attempt to identify the track, and Shazam's no good as it needs a snippet of the song itself to identify it. Well, Google’s latest feature is here to make this situation a thing of the past.

Tencent kills Shazam . Written by MomentumWorks Published on 6 Jul 2018. On our recent trip, we showed a friend in China the amazing functionalities of Shazam , the original music identification app precursor to SoundHound and Google Sound Search.

The ' Shazam for faces': World's first facial recognition for smartphones is now more than 99% accurate and can even tell identical twins apart. The app scans faces and brings up a profile with information about the person. These profiles include images and links to a target's social media accounts.

Dubbed Hum to Search, the feature uses machine learning to match a hum or whistle to a song. If Google’s data is anything to go by, with the question ‘What Song is Playing?’ reportedly being input into Google search almost 100 million times a month, this feature should prove extremely popular.

You don’t even have to have the right tone or key, which should help alleviate the embarrassment of your tone-deaf rendition of Era’s ‘Ameno’ in front of your friends.

a hand holding a remote control: Investing in a top biometric lock can help take your home or office security to the next level, with most requiring a matching fingerprint from people looking to enter a property. It takes the concept of a regular or smart lock down a different path, with the unrivaled detail of a finger identification often giving users more peace of mind. With that said, though, there are rarely two fingerprint locks that offer the same features; some will be better for businesses, while others are better for the home or even a gym locker.  Below, we'll detail some of the best biometric locks at a number of different budgets, letting you pick the one that suits your door and your needs.

To access the functionality, ensure you have the latest version of the Google app installed on your smartphone. Open the updated Google app and then tap the microphone icon to start Voice Search. Tap the prompt called ‘Search for this Song’ that should appear towards the bottom of the expanded search box and let rip with your humming or whistling.

So, how well does it work? In our testing, we found that Hum to Search was able to identify numerous classic and contemporary tracks, particularly from the Pop and Rock genres, such as Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart and The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights with relative ease.

However, the search seemed to falter when presented with hummed renditions of contemporary Hip-Hop, namely Kendrick Lamar’s Alright – and there’s no way this kind of tool could be used to identify less melodic genres like Death Metal.

Regardless of the feature’s limitations at the time of writing, it still offers a clear advantage over services like Shazam which require direct samples of the track in place of Google’s much lower requirement of humming or whistling. We’re sure this feature can only improve over time, like all deep-learning AIs.

This feature is currently available in English on iOS, and in more than 20 languages on Android.
