Google to deliver hands free music with Shazam

Google already lets you do lots of day to day tasks with simple “OK Google” voice command. Today, the company has teamed up with third party apps including Shazam in order to launch them directly from Search app.

You can get started with Shazam by simply saying “Ok Google, Shazam this song,” to have it search for a song immediately. This  will save a  user from opening the app and manually tapping the Shazam button to recognize the song. Now cards provide Android users with automatic Shazam updates through the Google Now feed. The Google Play integration makes it easier to play and buy music that users have discovered with the app, allowing direct purchasing from the online store. Users with a Google Play All Access subscription can also instantly stream Shazamed songs right from the app.

You will need to have the latest version of the Google app  as well as the most up-to-date versions of the Shazam app from the Google Play Store.
