Google is expanding its Glass platform to include Google Play Music integration integration—and a snazzy set of $85 earbuds to boot. So now you can bark at your augmented reality specs to play jams at you. "OK Glass: Play METAL!!"
Indeed, as reported earlier today by the NYT, Google Glass will now be getting all up in your earbuds with the ability to access the millions of tracks available through Google Play Music All Access. The new features include sound search—a lot like what's already available through Google Play on Android devices.
This type of real-world integration is exactly what makes Glass an attractive product. It provides you with a situational awareness of what's around you without ever having to pull out your smartphone. You do have to wear those dorky glasses, though.
