Is PlayStore Coming To Google Glass Soon?

/ 3 years ago


While many developers have been hard at work creating software for the innovative Google Glass device, they have so far only been 3rd party and the device still lacks a centralised distribution system like the rest of the Android platform, but all that could be about to change.

A proper database is required for storing apps, ready for download and purchase, of course Google already has this service and its called Play Store, but it’s not yet up and running for Glass, most likely due to app compatibility. However, a Glass optimized Play Store could be on it’s was and website Android and Me spotted “Google Glass 1” in the device field following Mountain View’s Play refresh that launched this week.

At this time it is not possible to push apps directly to the device, they have to be loaded on manually and of course Google will be hard at work making the device as usable and flexible as any other android platform.

The device is interesting, but I’m not sure I would want to walk around wearing one, nor do I know what I would need to, maybe I’ll just save up for an Oculus Rift instead.

Thank you Engadget for providing us with this information.

    It is all fine and I am super excited, but the question remains unanswered: will you be able to get Google Glass as a prescription option? You know, for those millions of us without perfect sight.
