Google already lets you search for artists and albums, now it will allow users to play the music directly from search results. The latest update for Android makers it quicker and easier to search for and play music.
Say you’re curious about your favorite pop artist’s latest hits, or you’re with friends chatting about the newest indie rock group and want to play some of their music. Starting today, when you ask Google about a musician, you can simply tap a link to play their music right in one of your installed apps.
said Google in a company blog post.
If you search for a band or an artist on Android the results will now show quick links to the artist’s page in your installed music apps.These apps include Play Music, YouTube, Spotify, iHeartRadio, TuneIn and Rdio. According to an example provided by Google, if a user searches for Katy Perry on his Android phone or tablet, he will now see a list of music apps at the top of the results page. Clicking on one of those links will start playing her songs in the app of your choice.
Currently, the service is only available for the users in the US but Google said that is will soon make the feature available globally.
