Google rolled out an update for its Play Music streaming service today, bringing one of its oldest features to the new application: “I’m Feeling Lucky.” The search option, which still appears on the Google Search homepage, takes the user to the top-ranked page for their search term. With Play Music it works a little differently.
With Google’s streaming service, the “I’m Feeling Lucky Radio” option creates an auto-generated station based on music you’ve listened to in the past. Android Police notes that the station actually seems to pick up on your favorite genre—the one you play the most—and stick to that, rather than mixing multiple styles you’ve shown an interest in.
The Pandora-inspired offering seems like a good way to find new music within your favorite genre, and we’re looking forward to trying it out for ourselves. The Play Music update (v5.2.1233L) should roll out to Android users over the next few days, though you may already have it now.
