Last week Google fulfilled a promise that they had made to Glass users in October and finally rolled out the Play Music app to its smart specs. Engineer Stephen Lau announced that the Google Play Music app has officially been added to the list of official apps available for download and use on Glass.
Finally, Google Glass users are able to play tracks from their personal Play Music libraries, as well as having the opportunity to tune in to Google’s on-demand streaming service, All Access. Futuristic Google Glass users will just need to utter the magic words: “Okay Glass, listen to” before naming the artist or song they’d like to hear. Users will even be able to check out artists and album information on their Glass screens.
This rollout comes just a few weeks after Google’s release of the ‘mono earbud’, a unique sound system designed for use with the newest versions of Glass. A further set of stereo earbuds has also been made available for Glass users to purchase alongside the Play Music app, coming in at a somewhat hefty price tag of $85. All these products, as well as further attachments and enhancements are available on the official Glass accessory store, which came online in October of this year.
