Not sure what music to listen to, just ask Google Now on Android to “play some music”

OK Google Music Feeling Lucky

Google is well known for its shenanigans and easter eggs when it comes to search, just try a Google search for “askew” to see them in action. So when Google Now on Android gets a cool new voice activated feature, I wonder if it is an easter egg or a full blown feature. This time around, try following up “Okay, Google” with “play some music” and you’ll get an “I’m feeling lucky” radio station fired up in the Google Play Music app.

The “I’m feeling lucky” radio station pertains to All Access users, but don’t worry if you do not subscribe to All Access, it will instead fire up an “I’m feeling lucky” instant mix out of your music. Assuming you’ve taken the time to upload your tunes to Google’s Play Music cloud storage, and have the latest Google Play Music app installed, of course.

To take advantage of this cool feature, in addition to the Play Music app, you’ll need to be running Android 4.1 or higher and have the latest Google Search app installed. If you do not know what I’m talking about, simply swipe up from the Home button on your device, if the Google Now search tool pops up, you are on the right track.
