Google has enabled the support for Google Play Music alongside some new other tweaks to its most popular wearable computing device, Google Glass in the latest XE11 update rolled out on November 7.
Many of the users thought that the latest update only changed the long pressing of touchpad to three time tapping for initiating the search along with the ability to lookup user’s calendar information directly within the Glass, but the music streaming support was also added quietly and the company now confirmed that it will be releasing a earbud headphones made for Google Glass in December for $85, which will make the Google Glass much more productive as well as an entertaining device.
