Google launched a feature called “Hum to Search” last October that allows you to find a track without typing its track, artist, or the album it belongs to in the search engine. Just hum or whistle for 10 to 15 seconds to find it easily via Google Assistant.
The most humming song on Google’s “Hum to Search” was Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus
