I believe is not available because buying music option is not. This is stupid: I don't want to buy any music, I just need someone to recognize the song when it plays at radio!

It is the thing with the Google Books: I don;t need to buy any books, I already have them and I only need the reader (gladly there are alternative).

I was actually going to submit a correction to this, thankfully, its already mentioned :D

I have had "Google Ears" (has said Sound Search on the widget since 4.0) since Android 4.0 :P, HOWEVER, it is now out on the Android Market!

I've had this widget on my 4.1.1 device for a long while now. Just as a normal widget. I think it appeared after I had to install a factory image for my Verizon galaxy nexus coming from 4.2

An I the only one week has had this widget for a long time already? I guess it really good to show how beneficial it is to root your phone and get the updates right away!
