How does this Google’s Feature work?

The most feasible approach to explain is that a song’s tune is just like its fingerprint: It has its own distinct identity. Google has developed machine learning models that are able to match your hum or melody to the right and exact fingerprint.

When any user hums a tune into the Search, google’s machine learning models convert the audio into a number-based sequence depicting the song’s melody. Google models are designed to identify songs on the basis of a diversity of sources which includes humans singing or humming in addition to the studio recordings. The designed algorithms also make vanish all the other details, like instruments, composition etc. So the Google search is left with is the song’s number-based sequence or we can say the fingerprint.

Google has compared the sequences to tens of thousands of songs from around the globe and identify potential matches in real-time.  Basically, it was built on the work of Google’s Research team’s music recognition technology.

This new algorithm based tech experience is really exciting and it takes it a step further, because now it has enabled us to find songs without the lyrics. All people need is to hum a tune of the studio-recorded version of the song, which Google uses to match it with a person’s hummed audio.
