On Monday, Google finally launched the redesigned Google Play Store for the web. Which was initially shown off back at Google I/O in May. Glass has been a pretty big topic over the past year, with Explorers having their Glass now and we’re hearing about new third-party apps launching all the time for Glass. The folks over at Android and Me noticed in the new version of Google Play there is a “Google Glass 1” entry pop up in the device field following the Play Store refresh yesterday.
Right now it’s not possible to push apps directly to Glass, but that might be available soon. It would be cool to have all the Glass apps in Google Play, since they are technically Android apps, because Glass runs on Android (Android 4.0 to be exact). So could we see the Chrome Store merge into the Play Store as well? And just create one massive Google store for all their products? It would kind of make sense since Chromebooks are sold through the Play Store but have nothing to do with Android. Although I’d love to be able to use some Android apps on my Chromebook.
We’re going to assume that when Glass is available for the general public, all the apps will be in Google Play. We don’t know if that’s what is really going to happen. But it would make perfect sense right? So we’ll have to keep our eyes out to see what Google does do for a Glass App Store. We have to have somewhere to go and download these awesome apps right?
How many of you are excited to see Google Glass become available for the general public later this year or early next year? Will you be lining up to pick up a pair? Let us know in the comments down below.
