Has Google introduced a music search function that’s similar to their video search feature? No, unfortunately not. But, thanks to a never-say-die user, there are adjustments you can make to your search string that can help locate these types of files.

A post over at The Unofficial Google Blog has shed some light on this subject. According to their post, over at Tech-Recipes.com, a mini-tutorial explaining how to modify your query so that Google searches open directories for these multimedia files has been added. It goes as follows:

-inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:”index of” “Last modified” mp3

The Tech-Recipe post reveals this particular string tells Google to isolate these open directories and then look for the file type defined in the string (in this case, it’s .mp3). This string can be further refined to include names (Pearl Jam is referenced in the post) and different file types.

For more information, please read the Tech-Recipe post.
