    The Hummingbird update was the first major update to Google's search algorithm since the 2010 “Caffeine Update”, but even that was limited primarily to improving the indexing of information rather than the sorting of information.

    Hummingbird makes Google almost human with the way it responds to queries. Instead of looking at keywords, Hummingbird makes Google look deeper and focus on the whole statement or question.

    Hummingbird is the new search algorithm that Google is using; one that Google says should return better results. Google Hummingbird aims to better understand the intent of the query instead of just looking at the keywords used in the query.

    Hummingbird also attempts to provide better results for voice searches done via mobile devices.
