Google Rolls Out OneBox Music Service

googleGoogle has partnered with Lala and iLike (MySpace Owned) companies to bring the new service to market.  For the time being it will only be available in the U.S. to start, but this should be interesting.

"Just imagine if when a consumer searches for a song, alongside all of those Torrent results is a heavily integrated Google music offering."

When users search using OneBox a pop-up widget powered by iLike or Lala offers to play the entire song.

According to Google, the words "music" and "lyrics" are among the top 10 search terms of all time.
"At Google, we see millions of music-related queries every day," said the company's vice president of search Marissa Mayer at the launch in Los Angeles.

"It is clear to us that for our users music holds a very special and particular place."
