Google is listening: searching audio

There are rumours that Google would be rolling out search functionality for audio files. It is true that currently no sound files (.wav, .mp3, .wma, .mov, .ogg, …) files can be found by Google’s “normal search”, except for the odd mis-indexed mp3 file.
Multimedia search is a fascinating topic, let’s talk about audio for a moment:



Currently existing audio search engines:
Search on “Donna Summer
AllTheWeb Audio Search: 104 results
Altavista Audio Search: 245 results 53 results
Lycos Multimedia Search: 350 results
