Pandora brings streaming music to your Google Glass
An official Pandora app is now available for Google Glass, allowing you to enjoy and control Internet radio on your eyewear using only your voice (and your ears, obviously). Initially built only as a hack-a-thon project and never really intended for public use, Google liked the app so much it made it an official Glass add-on.
“Twice a year, in the spring and in the fall, everyone in the technology organization here at Pandora puts our day jobs on hold and comes together for a Hack-a-thon,” Pandora says in a post on its blog. “During the Hack-a-thon this spring, one team developed a hack for Pandora on Glass.”
“It was such a hit that we decided to show it to Google, and we’re excited to announce today’s launch of Pandora for Glass.”
Pandora for Google Glass can be downloaded now via the MyGlass app or from the Glassware website, and it allows you to begin streaming music simply by asking for your favorite artist, track, or composer. You can also use it to access your personalized Pandora stations.
Pandora works with Glass’s built-in bone conduction transducer, the single earbud included in the Glass Explorer kit, or the optional double earbud accessory that is available from Google.
