Google Glass is for now a niche product used by a narrow segment of early adopters, although it’s broadening out (a bit) with their ability to invite up to three friends to buy the augmented-reality eyewear. Now the device is getting musical too, with the ability to search for songs, scan users’ playlists and actually play the tracks through a new set of $85 earphones that will go on sale this month. “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,” said Google Glass director of marketing Ed Sanders in a statement to the New York Times. Glass’ music features all tie in to Google’s own Google Play services, including All Access for streaming. However, the new features will presumably be available as part of the Glass API for other music services to use.
