Google Adds More Music, TV And Movie Content To Mobile Search, Including Recommendations

 
Google has announced an update to its mobile search that offers more details on musicians, actors, TV shows, and movies.

Wondering if your favorite singer is playing near you? Or looking for some new music suggestions? Or maybe you’re watching a TV show and can’t remember where you’ve seen that actor before? No matter what music, actors, movies or shows you love, our new update will keep you in the know.
 



 



Starting today Android phone and tablet users will see song recommendations, lyrics, covers, and more in search. For TV shows and movies, you can explore past and upcoming episodes, get recommendations on what to watch, check out the cast, and find showtimes. 

The feature doesn't appear to be live for all Android users; some of the users can see the new dedicated UI, while some cannot (although a lot of that information comes up in Knowledge Graph in any case). Expect to see a wide rollout sooner rather than later; the Google Search blog says that these expanded results will be available on iOS soon as well.
