Yahoo Enhances Music Artist Shortcut

About a year ago, Yahoo created a music artist shortcut to make it easier to find quick details about artists, such as videos, photos, sample song tracks and even their official website links, directly from the search results page. Now, in partnership with online music service Rhapsody, Yahoo music shortcut results allow you to play up to 25 full songs a month rather than 30-second samples. Using Rhapsody’s catalog also expanded the number of audio files are available for playback.

To listen, click a song result and the new media player from Yahoo! Music, called FoxyPlayer will launch near the bottom of the page. You can continue browsing the results page while the player is in use or turn it off at any time with a single click.

To try out the new features, simply search for one of your favorite musical artists at Yahoo search. Yahoo says they’re rolling out the new feature over the coming few hours.
