Google Search app for Android gets voice command for playing music
Google, soon after beginning the roll-out of song recognition feature in the Google Search app for Android, has now announced another update to the Search app for music fans.

The latest update of the Google Search app brings voice command for playing music, precisely in Google Now. The voice command can be activated by saying 'Ok Google'.

With the latest update, Android device users will need to tap the microphone icon on the Search app, or say 'OK Google' on the home screen, and then, be able to play some music with voice command like 'play some music' for launching the 'I'm feeling lucky' radio station, which will be an assembly of songs based on user's listening habit.

However, Google notes that the user needs to be a subscriber to Google Play Music All Access, which costs about $9.99 (Rs. 600 approximately) per month.

The Mountain View giant's Google+ post said, "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. You'll need to be have +Google Play Music installed for this to work. Try it out in the latest #GoogleSearch app for Android."

Notably, the Google Search update has not reached Play Store India yet, with the current listing showing 14 March 2014 as the last update for the app.

Earlier, Google added voice commands via the Search app for actions like clicking images or taking videos. The update allowed users to launch the default camera app with voice commands like 'take a picture' for launching the camera app in camera mode, and 'record a video' for opening the app in video mode.

Prior to this, much like the camera voice-command feature for the Google Search app, the search engine giant added relationship-based voice commands and allowed a user to make calls, send messages, and search using voice commands.
