Google Play Sound Search

"What's this song?" working in Google Now as well

Google's Sound Search, which lets users identify music tracks and artists by letting their phone listen to them, is branching out from the U.S. to include users in the U.K. In addition to the stand-alone app and widget for Sound Search, the same functionality also seems to be working within Google Now for U.K. users. Saying "What's this song?" then letting it listen will field results.

While the app's changelog hasn't been updated to reflect it, there has been an update in the Play Store and our own Alex Dobie in the U.K. is confirming that it does work now. Head to the Play Store link above to grab your download and test it out, and let us know in the comments if it's working in any other new countries.

Google Play Sound Search now available in the UK


It unlocked on both my N4 and N7 about a week ago, I just assumed I'd missed the heads up! It's nice that I don't have to defrost it with titanium backup anymore!

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?
