When Google introduced Android 4.2 this week, they made quick mention of a new music discovery service that would soon arrive in the Google Play store. The service, called Music Explorer, is now live and fully functional if you’d like to give it a spin. Actually, we heard from readers who saw it go live last night, but it now seems to be available to most users.
To access it, you need to grab your nearest Android tablet (I can’t tell if it’s coming to phones or not) and open up the music section in Google Play. Then, find an artist you like, tap on an album of theirs, and look for a box close to the price that says “Explore similar artists.” That’s actually a button that you can tap on – so tap on it. You will then be whisked away into the Music Explorer world. Check out the video below to see how to interact with it.
