Google has added a handy new feature to its Search App for Android. Users can now tap the microphone or say "OK Google" and then say "Play some music", and the Search App will create an "I'm Feeling Lucky" radio station based on your previous music searches. Android users who have the latest updated version of the Search App can use the feature immediately, everyone else simply needs to update the app from the Google Play Store.

The whole process is pretty seamless, but in my experience, it needs a little refinement. 99-percent of my music searches revolve around 90s alternative bands, and when I use the service, I get a Google Play Music station that consist of Kelly Clarkson, Mandy Moore, Miley Cyrus, and Prince. I tried this a few times, and similar playlist were generated. I did happen to get a single Nirvana song on the first try, but it was followed up by a Katy Perry track.
