The hum to search feature is in the YouTube app for Android users. The features use artificial intelligence (AI) to match the humming to the original music and provide the best results to the users. The feature availability to the YouTube Music app makes much sense as the Google search and YouTube app already supported this feature for some time now. YouTube has not made any official announcement regarding the feature yet or when it will be released to other users. With some of the iOS users receiving the feature now, then it may come to our devices in the coming weeks as well. The feature was highly appreciated by the users when it made its debut on the YouTube app. Now with its availability to the Music app, it may also be appreciated by the users.
