Google Glass Integrates With Google Play, Adds ‘Listen To’ Command

GOOGLE-GLASS-LOGOGoogle‘s Glass augmented reality headset has unveiled some new features and a high-tech set of earbuds, according to Billboard.com. Integrating with Google’s Play media hub, Glass has added a “listen to” command which retrieves and plays the song requested by the wearer from Play’s music service. Other services like Spotify will be added on the device in the future as well.

“With these new features, we’re now building a great music experience on Glass, whether you’re a classical music professor, an acclaimed sound engineer and hip-hop producer, or someone who wants to listen to their favorite tunes anytime, anywhere,” Ed Sanders, the Director of Marketing for Google Glass.

Google recently unveiled a new commercial touting the new product starring producer Young Guru wearing the glasses and using the technology. The $1500 headgear is still in beta testing.

“It’s an immense timesaver, and a great tool to make the world that much cooler, and realize some of the dreams we had as kids,” Young Guru said in an interview with the New York Times. “For all of us who grew up watching Star Trek, ” he added, “this is sort of the beginning of the holodeck.”
