Google has announced a new feature that can help you discover the song in your head by humming, whistling or singing a tune on your mobile.

All you need is the latest version of the Google application or use the Google search widget to activate the function.

To use the function, tap the microphone icon and say “What’s this song” or click the “Find a song” button and start humming for about 10 to 15 seconds.

Google’s learning algorithm transforms the “audio into a numerical sequence representing the song’s melody”, which helps locate possible song matches.
