Google music search thingy revealed

Cures lyricosis, allegedly

Security for virtualized datacentres

Google has officially rolled out its new music-search service, after widespread rumors it was on the way.

The web giant unveiled the service - dubbed Music OneBox - at an event in West Hollywood, California, this afternoon, The New York Times reports.

Music OneBox is essentially a beefed-up search result. If you type a song name into Google, you may see some info about the tune and a link where you can stream it from a third-party music service. Tune-streamers LaLa and MySpace Music have inked deals with the uber-search-engine. These links may also appear when you key in an album or artist name.

Google is also providing external links to music sites from Pandora, Imeem, and Rhapsody.

What's more, the search giant has partnered with Sony's Gracenote operation to provide song info when you key in some lyrics. And if you're inflicted with a case of lyricosis - or poor typing skills - Google's Suggest function will attempt to correct you.

In partnering with Google, none of these third-party music services receives any money. Nor are they sending any dough to Mountain View. The music services just wanted more traffic. And Google wants more excuses to serve more ads. ®
