Earlier this week, Google added the ability to open your phone’s Camera with a simple “take a picture” or “record a video” voice command in the Google Search app. Now, functionality has been added allowing users to instantly start Google Play Music‘s “I’m Feeling Lucky” radio station feature with a simple voiced request. The radio station will take into account what you’ve been listening to recently to tailor music in your library (or for All Access users, a lot more) for your ears’ pleasure.

Users, to try the new feature out, just need to say “OK Google, listen to music” to initiate the request from within the Search app, but variations of the phrase like “play me music” should be working for users as well.

Obviously, you’ll need Play Music installed to get the new features to work as it seems other music services are not supported at this time. The changes to Search itself are server-side, so if you have the latest version you should be golden.
