Google launches Sound Search widget for easy song identification, now available on Google Play for all devices


Previously available for only its Nexus line, Google launched a new Sound Search widget for all Android devices that allows users to identify a song playing and purchase it from Google Play. Services like Shazam and SoundHound also serve a similar purpose, but Google bragged its solution syncs across all devices to make purchasing easier from another device. Additionally, users running Android 4.2 can add the widget directly to their lockscreen to catch the song easier. Do you find yourself constantly scouring Google Play for music? This might not be such a bad thing to download from the source link below.
