Google Glass to Add Music Features and $85 Ear Buds

Google Glass is a device that complements reality. It is the ideal companion for any individual who wants a ton of experiences at hand. Finally, the feature of pleasurable music is about to come to this $1500 wearable gadget. Beginning from today, Google Glass will be featuring song search, playlists and hi-fi music facility. The glasses will respond to voice commands

"On Tuesday, Google will unveil a set of features for Glass to search for songs, scan through saved playlists and listen to music in high fidelity. This can all be done while a user is wearing the lensless frames, which respond to vocal commands and have a small computer and transparent projection screen above the right eye," according to NYT .

All the wearer has to do is vocalize his wish and the device will stream the music for hours of listening. Along with this comes a pair of headphones which cost $85. They will however be available in a month’s time. The overall musical mania afforded by Google will allow people unlimited choice in beautiful sounds. 

Google Glass has its infamous side since it was seen as an instrument that led to a loss of confidentiality. But with this new feature, it is back in the good books of many. There can be no harm in listening to pop, rock, jazz and heavy metal on Google Glass. It is indeed a great marketing ploy of sorts. Currently, the music service is the only major addition to the bursting portfolio of Google Glass. In the future, many more facilities could be coming to the platform.

When Google introduced Google Glass, the wearable display only worked with Android phones and tablets. It took some time, but last December Google created a MyGlass companion app for iOS, allowing iPhone owners to get most of the same functionality from Glass as Android users. That’s not likely going to happen with Android Wear, however. The first clue was when Dave Singleton, Google’s Android Engineering Director, sha ...
