Now you can listen to free music online without downloading it, thanks to Google’s new music-playing search result feature! Goodbye music download, hello instant music gratification! Instead of searching for downloadable music, now you can just search for the music you love, and play it! Being called by some the Google Music Service or the Google Music Player, here’s how it works: when you search for music online through Google, the search results offer you the ability to play that music – for freedirectly from the search results, with a little ‘play’ box. This is all the result of a partnership between Google and music streaming sites such as Pandora, Lala, MySpace Music, and Real Player’s Rhapsody service.

And, smart Google isn’t even paying any royalties on the music played – that privilege belongs to their partners.


Here is an example of a Google search result for “Alanis Morisette”, returning, at the top of the page, the “Google Music Player” loaded with Alanis songs:

  1. Loved the article Anne, thanks for sharing it with us. I googled some friends and only found snippets of their songs, but I guess that’s a good thing as far as royalties are concerned.

    Thanks again for the great information.
