Drooling over the awesomeness of Google Sound Search widget or Google Ears in latest flavor of Android? Well thanks to some developers at xda Forum (sorry, I don’t the name), Google Sound Search widget apk file has been extracted from Jelly Bean and made available to android community.
Google Sound Search, as the name suggests, is a widget from Google itself, which recognizes the sound and returns the most appropriate song match. I have installed it on my Galaxy S II running Android Ice Cream Sandwich and been using it for quite some time now. To say the least, Google Sound Search blows it’s competitors out of the water!
It’s way faster than Shazaam, SoundHood. Accuracy is times better than others. And best of all, it comes straight from Google’s kitty, makes use of humongous search database Google posses so chances of getting the most appropriate match are much much more.
It was able to guess the song (and album) name for all the English language titles I played. To add to this, it was even able to recognize some (not all, not latest releases) bollywood title’s as well!
Installing Google Sound Search widget requires you to install the apk file, NO ROOT IS REQUIRED (download link below), putting the widget on home-screen and tapping on the widget to start playing with it! Do note that it only displays the song title, album name and album/movie poster. Tapping on it again will open Google Play Store which as of now is available in select countries only.
