Google Ears is a sound search, music listening and tagging service that built into recent announced Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It can identify a song that is playing and allows user to purchase the track from Google Play store (purchase music track is not available for Malaysia). This also means Google Ears is a direct compete to existing applications such as Shazam and SoundHound.
