Yahoo Audio Search: Music Samples in Search Results

Yahoo Audio Search

In case you missed it, the Yahoo Search blog reported that Yahoo now has an audio search site. Just another search page to visit, you say? Hardly.

Yahoo really is working on some interesting things. People just give Yahoo less focus now because of all the Google things going on (well deserved, mind you) such as Google Earth’s new Google Sky.

In any case, Yahoo Audio Search has a very friendly interface. Search as you would on any site, and the search results will have a play button in-line with the search results. You can click right on them for an instant sample stream. No waiting or going to ad stuffed sites.

Of course, it won’t come up with an audio sample for all songs and not for lesser known artists. Still, this is a great step in terms of the maturity of search.
