  • YouTube Music is rolling out a new search option that allows users to identify songs by humming or singing them.
  • Google previously introduced this feature in Google Search and the main YouTube app.
  • It is currently showing up for Android users of the YouTube Music app.

YouTube Music‘s latest feature, hum-to-search, is here to rescue us from the torment of the forgotten song. This innovative feature allows users to identify songs by humming, singing, or playing the melody. It was initially tested as part of an experiment on YouTube and is now being rolled out to YouTube Music users on Android. (h/t: 9to5Google)

To access the hum-to-search feature, users can tap on the magnifying glass search icon in the top-right corner of the YouTube Music app. Alongside the existing microphone icon for voice search, users will now find a new waveform icon.
