Google at I/O 2012 not only unveiled Android Jelly Bean but also introduced an called “Google Ears”. The app is similar to Shazam or Sound Hound. It analyzes the sounds in the background and searches for the name of the song, the artist and other information for it. As it is Google any song it picks up, if available on the Play Store can be directly downloaded from there. Though the songs would be paid ofcourse.
The App has been tested on the Galaxy S2 running ICS, and it works perfectly, its quite fast too. So will it give the top apps like Shazam and Hound Dog a run for their money? We’ll have to just wait and see. The app can be downloaded here.
