Okay, we already knew it was coming. But, today Google is officially launching built-in music playback results on regular Google search queries. So watch out iTunes and Amazon! Google has integrated songs into its search results.
It might have happened that you like a song but don’t know the name of the song or the album. Or the tune you heard in a local cafeteria recently is catchy and you really want to listen to it, but you just can’t figure out the name of the song, damn. Worst still, you remember just one or two lyrics of the song, but you forget the exact name of it. And situations like these made you wonder if there was a way to help you to somehow remember the song. Personally, I have spent many half-awake nights trying to remember such songs/music.
Thankfully, not any more… To help you solve this with a single click, Google has announced a new search feature today to make search more musical.
Much has been made of this new feature, and it certainly will make it easier for users to get straight to a song they’re looking for, but it’s not something we’re getting all that excited about. We’ll admit that finding and playing back a song when all you’ve done is search for lyrics is kind of cool. Still, Google already puts video results from YouTube in the search results page, and more often than not they’re what you’re looking for, anyway.
Right now we’re not seeing the updates in our results when we try Google search, but chances are you’ll start seeing them soon if you aren’t already.
What do you think? Are you all excited about the new music-in-Google features, or kind of lukewarm? Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments.
