Google Music Search Officially Launched

October 28, 2009, By Alex Ion

Today, Google is rolling out a new search feature that enables you to search and more easily discover millions of songs, all via a ‘simple Google web search’. Now, when you enter a music-related query — like the name of a song, artist or album — your search results will include links to an audio preview of those songs provided by Google’s music search partners MySpace (which just acquired iLike) or Lala. When you click the result you’ll be able to listen to an audio preview of the song directly from one of those partners. For example, if I search for [21st century breakdown], the first results provide links to songs from Green Day’s new album. MySpace and Lala also provide links to purchase the full song.


Sometimes, you don’t remember the name of the song or the artist. Maybe you remember only the chorus, but you forgot the exact name of the song. This search feature also helps you find many of those songs by entering a search containing a line or two of lyrics. For instance, if you search for [static silhouette somehow], you will get results for Phoenix’s song “Rome.”


So, this incredible new feature helps you discover music you’ll like, even if you can’t tell it what exactly you want to hear.

Cool isn’t it?
