Google’s new feature in its search app lets you hum a melody into your phone and it’ll attempt to recognise the song. Hum to Search is offered through the basic Google app for both iOS and Android, and it works with humming, whistling or just any noise you can think of. Obviously, the more accurate the noise, the more accurate the result.
The results appear in order of confidence with a percentage score from 0 to 100%, depending on what Google thinks is the correct answer based on its own AI and machine learning.
Shazam has released a selection of data showing what tracks were most popular in Ibiza over the summer.

A new gameshow based on music discovery app Shazam is being developed by FOX.
Although no premiere date has been confirmed yet, Beat Shazam will reportedly see contestants compete to identify tracks before going head-to-head against the app itself in the final round.
With the app previously teaming up with brands to make their TV adverts Shazamable, we're guessing a similar system will be in place for the new show, with it acting as a new plugging system for major labels.
Daft Punk made another fleeting appearance on hit US cartoon Family Guy this week alongside music discovery app Shazam and Lana Del Rey.
