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."
