YouTube is also borrowing one of Google Assistant’s few tricks. Now you can sing or hum a song, and YouTube will recognize you. You need to hum for at least three seconds for the trick to work its magic. This will happen in the coming weeks, starting with Android. Until then, you can call Google Assistant to do the job. After all, the results that it pulls are usually not consistent across music platforms and YouTube videos, so that’s it.
Here’s what’s going on:
Google’s new hum to search function is great. It works well with Hindi, English, and Urdu classics as well. Although I worked flawlessly on two Persian songs that I hummed.

YouTube is redesigning the “You” page that can be found in the profile picture at the bottom right of the screen. Instead of just managing audio, you’ll now see carousels of video clips neatly separated into rows labeled history, playlist, etc. It looks very clean and makes it easy to find videos you may have liked, saved, added to a playlist, or watched. (assuming that viewing history was first enabled) previously.
YouTube is making it easy for creators to highlight their social media links using a dedicated tab. The company is also managing the YouTube TV feature. Details such as action buttons, video descriptions, titles, and comments are now visible in a separate window placed neatly on the right side of the screen. These updates will eventually roll out to mobile and web customers.
