New Delhi: Google has launched its online music service in India that enables users to search for legal music streams and downloads.
For its Indian music search service (http://www.google.co.in/music) Google has partnered with In.com, Saregama and Saavn. The three digital music providers, hold rights to hundreds of thousands of Indian tracks - ranging from old and new Bollywood hits to Indian classical music. The music search service currently indexes only Hindi songs.
Users can search for a particular song, an album or even for artists. On clicking the search results the songs play on a pop-up window.
Google had first launched a music search feature in October 2009 for which they had partnered with MySpace, Pandora and Rhapshody amongst others. Music related search ranks high on the most used search keywords on Google.
The Google India music search is still a part of Google Labs, where Google experiments and demonstrates new products before integrating them as a standard feature on its services.
