Yahoo! and Rhapsody are putting the play buttons right in the search box and making the web playable. Users who search for an artist with available content on Yahoo! will be able to click play right in the Yahoo! shortcut at the top of the search results and instantly stream full-length songs by that artist through the FoxyTunes Player, which is powered by Rhapsody.
â€œThe launch of full-song playback in Yahoo! Search brings us closer to realizing Yahoo! Musicâ€™s vision of making the web playable and removing the barriers that prevent people from clicking play and hearing music,â€ said Michael Spiegelman, head of Yahoo! Music. â€œThe powerful combination of Rhapsody and Yahoo!â€™s FoxyTunes Player will greatly enhance the discovery and consumption of music on the Web by giving online music fans what they want â€“ an easy way to hear music.â€
