Google launches Sound Search widget for Google Play
posted by Michael H. / Dec 13, 2012, 12:14 AM
This widget actually leaked back in August under the name Google Ears, and Android 4.2 users will recognize the widget, because it is one of the few options for the lockscreen widgets in the newest version of Android. However, the new widget that has been released into the Play Store is available for any Android device running 4.0 or higher, so that at least covers close to a third of the Android ecosystem at this point.
Possibly the best feature of the Sound Search widget is that, much like many other Google apps, it syncs across your device. So, you can tag a song on your phone while you're out and about, then purchase that song on your tablet when you get home.
If you want to give it a try, the Sound Search widget is available for free in the Google Play Store.
"this item isn't available on my country" :(

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!

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!
