Google have extended their “I’m feeling lucky” search function to their Play Music All Access service to reflect your listening habits. The service takes a selection of music from your recommended music in Play Music and offers it up to you as your own personalised streaming radio. I have had access to the update for around 24 hours now and am genuinely impressed by the mix that’s coming through my headphones, with only 2 or 3 songs that have warranted a “next track” button press in around 8 hours of listening it appears that for me at least; Google have done a great job of recognising music listening habits and offering it in an easy to access mix.
The sparse changelog for the updated APK reads
- I’m feeling lucky radio gives you music you love at the push of a button
- Pin icons added to cards to make it easier to find things you’ve kept on device
While it’s rolling out in the normal Google staged rollout fashion, there are a good number of APK sources on the web if you’re feeling too impatient to wait for your account to get access.
Is I’m feeling lucky radio a good addition to Play Music or a simple case of Google doing something new because they can?
