Google Glass Update XE11 Brings New Compatibility With Google Play Music

project glass3

As noted by Phandroid, the newest XE11 update for Google Glass has brought along a fancy new undisclosed feature with it that Google will apparently be announcing soon. Users that decide to sideload the Google Play Music application to Glass, can then control and stream music right through the headset after saying the command, “Ok Glass, listen to…” followed by the name of a song or artist. 

Once up and running, you can skip, pause, play, stop, and everything you might need while listing to music. If you are a Glass Explorer and want to get this onto your unit, follow these simple directions to get it all working.

  1. Download the latest Google Play Music APK here.
  2. Go to Glass Settings > Device Info and turn on debug mode. Connect Glass to your computer.
  3. Using the Android SDK, issue the command “adb install FILENAME.APK“, where “FILENAME” is the APK’s actual filename on your computer.
  4. Enjoy the tunes!

If you have needed another way to drain Glass’ battery faster than it already does, you should definitely try this out. Keep in mind that the bone conduction speaker may not sound great, but with the new version of the Glass hardware that allows for an earbud attachment, your music should sound just fine.

  • The top image is a perfect example on how to never get laid….ever.

    Does this mean Google has opened a a HW API to Google Music and now Sonos can connect to it? – Please say yes, then tell me the truth

  • Yes me too..

  • xuy

    That adam morrison from gonzaga penetration movie mustache…

  • Long Duck Dong

    So sorry, but those glasses look stupid. And that queer mustache doesn’t help. Maybe he thought his douchey facial hair would distract from his douchey glasses. This dude just struck out with any chance at hot chicks: stupid glasses, stupid mustache and oriental.

  • Mark Aaron Collado

    i mustache you a question about those google glass

  • ApplesNAndroids

    This guy represents what most people will look like wearing Google Glass.

    • AbbyZFresh

      Welcome to the future, whether you people like it or not.

      People love to watch science fiction movies and have visions of it in a real-life scenario. All of a sudden you people start getting fearful once a little taste of the fiction becames to come to reality.

      Sigh, i guess people like seeing changes.

  • No Glass fo me

    Too bad that states are banning these things faster than I can change my underwear.

    • AbbyZFresh

      What states? Can you clarify this?

      You haters will never get your wish. Glass is coming whether you like it or not.

    • Edward Coles

      There was one documented ticket. Other than that I have not heard of any state banning them specifically. I also dont see how they can be considered a distraction when they are less obtrusive than most gps or headunits.

  • Tyler

    I wish they improved the music commands in google now, it never seems to work for me. Maybe I’m using it wrong. I should be able to say “play the song ____” and it play that song or open the app with songs with that name.

    • 4n1m4L

      Having glass control chromecast makes sense, I’m not sure about natively though…

    • Daeshaun Griffiths

      I’m not sure if you didnt notice but Google now usually gets updated right after glass with similar improvements.

      • Tyler

        That’s good news. I hadn’t noticed that but I’ll keep my eye out for it now.

    • Adam Marr

      No doubt, if it works like it does on my phone, they’ll just get a link to buy “x” on the glass play store…

  • Ian

    If we could never see this image again, I would be ok with that…

  • Ej McCarty

    The fact that this guy had a pair makes me never want to own them.

    • John Davids

      And why might that be?

      • Ej McCarty

        You’re kidding me right? I don’t want to be caught in the same croud as a nerdy/graying/can’t tell if he’s 50 or 22 years old asian. And that stache makes me want not only to punch babies, but go back in time and punch him as a baby.

        • John Davids

          Wow. Other’s opinions really alter your thoughts and actions. You actually wouldn’t try / wear / use this tech because you “don’t want to be caught in the same croud” (its crowd, btw) as an amorphous Asian with a bad mustache from a promo shot? As I look around the comments I see that quite a few people share your sentiment. Is it exhausting being that much of a sheep all day?

  • Ian Smith

    must. resist. urge. to punch screen

    • Yeah

      There aren’t enough up arrows in this solar system for this comment.

    • David Verba

      I literally entered this thread to say the exact same thing. I swear to god if I ever saw this A.Hole on the street I’d punch him right in his D.Sucker.

      • Ian Smith
