Google now indexes audio

Last week Google announced that it has launched yet another service, GAudi, no-doubt named after Antoni the famous Barcelona Architect. Still in 'Beta' (Google's way of saying "we're not sure if this product is good enough to shout about, we'll let you test it first") this service understands ('listens to') and catalogues the audio used in video clips posted on YouTube. It then allows these clips to be searched in a Google-esque manner.

Currently only USA political-based video's seem to be indexed, but it can't be long before Google Labs points this service as the wider YouTube video index can it?
