YouTube Is Testing Hum-to-Search Feature
Google claims that in order to activate this feature, you must first switch to YouTube Voice Search. You must then hum or record the music for at least three seconds after that. You will be shown the appropriate YouTube content, such as a user-uploaded video, an official music video, or a brief clip.
The hum-to-search and recording features, according to reports, are reportedly only accessible to a very limited portion of YouTube Android users at the moment. Therefore, if you don’t yet have access to it, don’t worry. The fact that Google is classifying this as a test or experiment is noteworthy in this situation.
