Google Glass To Add Music Functions

Access to Google Play


The futuristic online glasses known as Google Glass will add music functions over the next two weeks for the few thousand "Explorers" beta-testing the devices around the world. These include hands-free access to Google Play, the company's streaming-and-downloading music service, a Shazam-like app that identifies unknown songs and stereo earbuds. "I may be in a lot of places and I hear things — I can search without having to pull out my phone or find an app," says Young Guru, the longtime Jay Z mixer and DJ who has been testing the glasses for three months. "It allows me to do that so quickly."
