Google Inc (GOOG) Glass Updated with Play Music App


Google Inc. (GOOG) recently added Google Play Music to the list of apps supported by Glass.

The Music app can be accessed from the MyGlass page by all except those who have already downloaded the app ahead of time. These users will have to first uninstall it through the Android Debug Bridge so that it can be successfully installed via MyGlass.

It seems that the wait is finally over for Glass users who all this while wanted to make good use of their headsets to listen to music of their choice. It’s also really convenient because once the glass is removed from the head, the playback automatically ceases and resumes only when the headset is put back on.

However, the music app comes with its share of issues. Songs that have played once remain on the timeline but it provides no means by which new songs can be added without a voice search.

Google is also offering stereo earbuds at $85 (very expensive, but they also happen to meet the exact requirements of Glass, so could be purchased for that reason). Google Glass is still not widely available, but the continued enhancements and app support make it a must-have.

Google reported gross revenue of $14.89 billion in the third quarter of 2013, up 5.6% on a year-over-year basis. The company has expressed its intention to increase investment in its core products in the future.
