Google makes searches more musical; but not if you're Indian

Now it's official, the new Google music service, the details of which had leaked about a week ago, has been announced, and just on 28th as the leak stated. As always, Indians will be left out of the loop for this exciting development.

For those who missed the leak, the new Google music service is actually a new feature of Google search which is capable of recognizing when you are searching for a music artist, album or track, and can offer you direct links of the songs, to purchase or preview; using the music services they have partnered with.

The search doesn't stop at the artist, album and track titles, but offers lyrics as well: listing tracks which contain your search terms as lyrics. Very useful, if you just heard a song, and don't know anything else about it.

Google have partnered with MySpace and LaLa to provide purchase links for the songs, and with Pandora, imeem and Rhapsody to help you discover similar music. 

All through their announcement post, Google makes it pretty clear, this joy if for the residents of the US only, where they will be "rolling this feature out gradually." For now if you need to make your searches more "musical", you'll need an American IP.
