Give It a Text Prompt or Hum into It, YouTube Will Turn It into a Song

On Thursday, Google-owned YouTube is teasing us, by testing new generative AI (Artificial Intelligence) features.

On Thursday, Google-owned YouTube is teasing us, by testing new generative AI (Artificial Intelligence) features.

The feature is like no other features in the industry. Why, you ask?

This is because, with just a written prompt or a simple hummed tune, people will be able to create music tracks thanks to these features. The platform unveiled Dream Track, an experiment running on Google DeepMind’s most recent sophisticated music generation model, Lyria, within YouTube Shorts.

What Should You Know About This Feature

Nine musicians have chosen to work together on this project, including Alec Benjamin, Charlie Puth, Charli XCX, Demi Lovato, John Legend, Papoose, Sia, T-Pain, and Troye Sivan. Together, they will help shape how AI will be used in music in the future.

The company stated, “The artists, songwriters, and producers in the Music AI Incubator are helping us test, learn, gain feedback, and hear ideas so that we can develop the best experiences possible for our community of artists, viewers, and fans.”

Imagine being able to effortlessly translate ideas and thoughts into music. You could hum a new guitar riff or add a reggaeton vibe to a pop song.

YouTube also added the company is “working on potential tools that could make these possibilities a reality, and participants in the Music AI Incubator shall be capable of testing it out later this year.”

In the meantime, video sharing platforms are introducing new guidelines for AI content, one of which requires producers to disclose if they have employed generative AI to produce videos that appear realistic.

YouTube, in the meantime, stated that content creators who do not reveal that they have used AI tools to produce “altered or synthetic” videos risk fines in a blog post that was released on Tuesday and detailed various policy changes pertaining to AI.

These sanctions might involve the removal of content or a suspension from the platform’s revenue-sharing scheme.

Turn That Feature Upside Down

Even though these features are amazing, revolutionary, and futuristic, we should all work together to reconsider their intended use. Why should all YouTube AI features revolve around celebrities?

Why can’t the target audience of this feature be children who are interested in creating their own music? A child could compose a piece of music for themselves with just a text prompt or a hum. Just picture how wonderful it would be if an AI feature supported a rising talent.

The feature is available to the public, free of charge. This feature will help children develop their talent, without replacing a music instructor.

Having such a tech feature would help the child become more aware of music and boost their self-esteem in terms of their talent. Maybe this feature, in its catchier manner, would aid in creating a new path for YouTube?

YouTube, give my idea a shot, and I promise you it would be to your benefit!
