Google Now adds ability to launch ‘I’m feeling lucky’ radio station by saying ‘Play some music’
Earlier this week, Google made a backend tweak to the Google Search app for Android that added the ability to take a picture or video with Google Now by saying “Ok Google, take a photo.” This afternoon, the company has added another new voice command, this time relating to Google Music. Starting today, you can now say “Ok Google, play some music” and an “I’m feeling lucky” radio station will start to play via Google Music. The I’m feeling lucky station provides a constant stream of music based on your listening history.
Lots of driving ahead this weekend and already bored of listening to the radio? To get a surprise mix of music, just tap the mic (or say “Ok Google”) in your Google Search app and say “Play some music.” You’ll get an “I’m feeling lucky” radio station assembled based on your recent listening.
This feature will certainly be useful for those long car rides or workouts when you want to change up your music. Google notes that you must have Google Music installed for this feature to work. You can try it out today in the Google Search app with Google Now.
