Google Glass to get access to Google Play Music in the coming weeks

GoogleGlass_15
Google Glass is getting a lot of new features and the newest one, which Google has just announced on Google+ and Twitter will be arriving on Glass in the next few weeks is the ability to play music from Google Play Music through Glass.

As a Glass Explorer, users will be able to use the command ‘Ok Glass listen to….’ to access their library stored in Google Play Music as well as the tracks available through ‘All Access’. This new functionality will also be paired with a pair of stereo earbuds that have been designed specifically for Glass, and are expected to cost around the USD $85 mark. Google describes the earbuds as :

lightweight and uniquely engineered to deliver crisp, full-range audio while still letting you hear your surroundings. You can also rock out in style by customizing your buds with five interchangeable color caps

In the video that Google released alongside the announcement for the upcoming update, Young Guru, an acclaimed DJ, producer and audio engineer as well as Glass Explorer can be seen picking up the headphones from a table and shows off the five coloured earbuds :

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

What Google needs to do is stop stuffing around with GG and release it properly globally.
What we’ll likely see, though, is a US only retail release, probably Q3 2014, with a staggered global release over the following 2 to 3 years, and of course AU will likely be one of the last countries it gets released in.

Meanwhile there will be launches from Samsung, Microsoft and others?

For international release it’s not that big of a deal as you can buy anything from overseas these days..
