Notes from the Future - Google Hum Search

Google Hum Search lets you hum a song to Google, and it will start playing that song back to you, the original version, in full. It will first search your Google Music library for the song, and then it will search the rest of the Internet. Wherever it finds the best matched song, it will start playing back. You can do this search on your computer, on your smart phone, on your tablet.

Google Hum Search is so good, you don't even need to know the lyrics of the song. You can just hum the tune and it will play back the song. Here's a video of me humming Bryan Adams's I Wanna Be Your Underwear, and watch Google play back the full song to me:


First World Problems: Can't Hum to Google

Ah, NO! That feature is still not available in Google! :-(

What year is this? 2012! Why can't I do this already? It's not like I am asking for flying cars or jet packs or hoverboards.

It's been over a year since Google introduced their Music product, and this feature is still not available. Yo Google, don't be slacking off on the job! I want this feature yesterday!!
