Google Glass gets Pandora music streaming

Google and Pandora on Wednesday announced a new app for the wearable tech which allows for streaming of music. Indeed, your favorite Pandora stations are now available directly through your Google Glass. And, before you ask, yes, you can thumbs up stuff and create new stations just as you would anywhere else.

As to how the music is delivered depends on the user. Options include the built-in speaker + bone conduction, the single earbud, or the double earbud accessory.

After starting out as a hackathon project, Pandora was so proud enough of the effort that they showed it to Google. As it turns out Google liked it so much that they released it as an official Glass app.

Built by Pandora, our Glassware allows you to access your personalized radio stations from wherever you are, interacting with the service through voice command or by using the touchpad. Supported voice commands for Pandora include selecting an existing station and creating a new one. For a more advanced experience, you can use the touchpad, which offers the ability to thumb-up and thumb-down tracks, as well as access standard controls like pause, skip and stop.
