Google Now "What's This Song?" also reported to be working for some users

Following the branch out of the Google Play Sound Search widget from the U.S. in selected European countries such as the UK and Ireland, the next to receive it are our friends down in Australia. Ausdroid reports that the widget is now available via the Google Play Store to download. Google's answer to Shazam, Sound Search will attempt to tell you what song is playing when you tap the homescreen widget. 

The Google Now "What's This Song?" feature also appears to be working now for some Australian users, though reports suggest this may still be rolling out. When trying it some are still seeing a message of "action not supported in your country," while others are seeing more successful results. 

Grab a copy now from the Google Play Store, and if the latest rollout has hit you somewhere other than Australia, be sure to drop us a line in the comments below.

Looks like i'll have to fly up to the gold coast tomorrow then =P

But nothing i melb. I'll check tomorrow morning!

I have it too in France but I think I had to do something weird to get it. I'm not that sure though, I didn't checked if I could download it before that.

I went on the Play Store, "My Applications", then "All".
Once I get the list of previous or currently installed applications, I had to scroll to the very end to finally see Google Play Sound Search.
It said I had to do an update, which I did.
=> the widget on my home screen and a lock screen are now available :)

I have a Nexus 4.

Does that work for you also?

I've on my #nexus4 here in Spain without any manipulation or install, just see it on my widgets drawer

It's pretty much been disabled on my nexus 4 always. Soundhound finds the song better and faster. And it doesn't matter if it is or it's not in Google Play.

I live in NZ also, and I've had it since launch. I have a US Nexus 4 though, which probably explains it.
