A couple of weeks ago, Google announced the latest version of the Android operating system – called Jelly Bean – with so many new and exciting features at the Google I/O Keynote held at San Francisco. As of now, Google Nexus 7 tablet is the only device that runs Jelly Bean operating system, but according to the company, it will soon be rolled out to more devices.
Talking about ‘Google Song Search’ in the latest Android upgrade, it’s a feature that will recognize the song for you when you points your phone towards the music source. You may already be familiar with this kind of app, as Shazam or Soundhound have been there for a long time in the Google Play Store.
You must be wondering what is the need of ‘Google Song Search’ feature when we already have 3rd party apps to have this feature in your phone. Well, tell me one thing – You can use the app such as Soundhound for the song recognition and it gives you all the details like Title, Singer and Album Name, but can it provide you the buy link and allow you to download the song it recognizes right away?
As you may already know, Google Play Store now allows users to access music, movies, TV Shows, Magazines. What ‘Google Song Search’ is capable of doing is – you point the phone towards the source of music and it instantly recognizes the song and takes you directly to the respective track in the Google Play Store and allows you to download in one click.
An XDA-ian (A Member of Xda Developer Community) ‘asdfzz’ was able to nab the apk file of the app from the Jelly Bean operating system and made it available for the Ice Cream Sandwich devices. So all of you who have an Android device that runs on ICS update, you can now download and install the apk file on your device. It installs like any other application.
Once installed, you can have the ‘What’s This Song’ widget on your home screen. I’m assuming that you now already know how to use the app. So what are you waiting for? Download the apk file from the link below and let me know how you like it.
