Google Play Music: All Access users get invitation to buy Google Glass

google play music google glass offer

We didn’t know how often Google would look to take on new Glass Explorers after the initial batch signed up at Google IO in 2012, but the company quickly showed that they weren’t against inviting tons more people to the program over time. Yet another opportunity has come up for those who happen to be subscribers to Google Play Music All Access.

Google has offered an invitation to buy Google Glass for anyone subscribed to Google Play Music All Access as of December 31st, 2013. They’re doing it to celebrate the launch of Google Play Music on Google Glass, natch. An invite alone isn’t enough to grant you a pair of Google Glass, of course — you’ll also need to be willing to part ways with about $1,500.

That’s no small bill, but it’s worth it if you’re interested in being on the edge of upcoming technology and helping Google improve the platform before its retail release (which is expected to happen at some point in 2014). We imagine those who sign up and buy a pair will be getting the latest revision, which includes a refined design and support for a new mono earbud.

You can see our unboxing of the latest Google Glass revision here to get an idea of what to expect. Convinced and/or sold? Go ahead and check your email from Google (ours had the subject “Free New Year’s DJ Mix + Exclusive Google Glass Offer” and it was sent by news-googleplay [at] google [dot] com).

    I just can’t imagine spending $1,500 for Glass.

    • holdmydroidandwatchthis

      I can barely imagine spending $150 on glass.

      • Dean Politis

        I wouldn’t hesitate to buy it at $150. I’d buy it at $300 without hesitation.

    • JBrowne1012

      $750 after tax is most I would go for google glass

  • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

    A nice touch would be giving explores who purchased glass a free pair of the final product. I would hate to spend 1500 bucks just to want to turn around and buy the finished product next year.

      Some would argue it’s the “experience” that’s worth $1,500. Interacting with developers, providing feedback, and being able to experience early tech before anyone else.

      I’m not that guy.

      • Dean Politis

        Google really needs a store where people can try Glass out. It is a big investment for something that may not work for you.

        • holdmydroidandwatchthis

          It might be floating in SF Bay awaiting regulatory approvals

  • AdrianP513

    I’d just spend 200 dollars on a pair of prescription glasses if I want to have those on my face again.

  • hideeho100

    Funny. I have all access since the first may nth and never got an invite.

    • Lonetree

      Same here.

    • dreadnatty08

      Same here. Signed up when it was first announced. Not that I care, I don’t have $1500 to spend on anything….

    • Brandon Miller

      Yup, have had it since the start but I’ve got nothing so far.

  • Shane Newbanks

    If anyone does get an invite and doesn’t play in using it, I would love a chance at getting glass. If you would like you can send it to my email at Shane.Newbanks@gmail.com. Thank you and Happy New Year!!!

  • Dieter Blomme

    Is this international or only US based users?

  • Chris

    I hope I win one! http://ptab.it/23VQc
    Glass seems ready for the buying consumer? Will we see a commercialised version in 2014? I hope so! http://ptab.it/23VQc
