How dose the hum to search work?
The user can hum, whistle or sing for about fifteen seconds, then the technology of google takes these data & the songs melody & turns it into a number based sequence & recommends the user the songs which relate to the hum. This feature has been possible through google’s machine learning algorithms which helps in the identification of the potential match of the songs.
