That tune you heard in a restaurant recently is catchy and you really want to listen to it, but you just can’t figure out the name of the song. To help you solve this with a single click,Â Google has announced a new search feature today to ‘make search more musical‘.
This new search feature enables you to search and easily discover songs with just a simple Google web search.
Now, when you enter a music-related query like the name of a song, artist or album’s your search results will include links to an audio preview of those songs provided by Google’s music search partners MySpace 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 instance, if you searched 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.
Thus, this new search feature helps you discover music in a much easier way, even if you can’t tell it what exactly you want to hear.
This feature doesn’t just make search better. It also helps people discover new sources of licensed music online while helping artists to discover new generations of fans and reconnect with longtime listeners. And, this tool introduces millions of music seekers in the U.S. to a new generation of licensed online music services, from MySpace and Lala to Pandora, imeem and Rhapsody.
Google is rolling out this feature gradually to users across the U.S. over the next day. You might want to check out this video which illustrates this new search feature.
