Google India shut down music search service

Google India has shut down its online music search service, Google Music India, which allowed users to search for music by entering names of artists, movies, albums or song titles associated with it. It also allowed users to play music online via partners like record label Saregama, Web18′s In.com and Saavn.
Interestingly, Google India has also officially confirmed that it has indeed shuttered down the service since a lot of legal online services for music were available that figure prominently in Google search results.
However, it’s worth pointing out that it was a ‘labs’ product. According to Google, labs products are experimental only and are not guaranteed to make it onto Google.com.  The company says that labs products are essentially “for more adventurous users to play around with prototypes of some of our wild and crazy ideas and offer feedback directly to the engineers who developed them.”
Google had launched the service in October 2010.
