Google Glass Expands Into Music
Flaunting the expanding possibilities of Glass, Google is set to roll out musical functionality for the augmented reality device. The feature is set to debut amongst “Explorers” – Google Glass beta testers – incorporating searching, sound detection and playback capabilities for the tool. These features will link seamlessly with a Google Play account, which will allow access to playlists and song recommendations. Accomplished music engineer Young Guru created a video showcasing these new features in a ‘day-in-the-life’ piece, searching for translations in a restaurant setting, identifying a song playing in the background, then sharing the song with his friend and flipping it in the studio. Enjoy the video above, and look for the accompanying Glass-specific earbuds to drop later in the month for $85 USD.
