Google Glass Glassware Shazam Zombies Run MusiXmatch

Earlier today, we saw Google Glass availability open up for our Android friends across the pond and with that, came the addition of some new Glassware. For its introduction in the UK, the wearable headset saw Shazam added to the Glassware Store, an app that allows the users to tag music playing in the real world. While this was initially made exclusive to Glass users overseas, Shazam is now officially available for Glass wearers in the US as well. But that’s not all…

The Kickstarter hit “Zombies, Run!” is also available for Google Glass. You may remember us featuring Zombies Run as one of our favorite fitness apps for Android to help get you back in shape after the holidays. An audio adventure co-created with award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman, Zombies Run will have you saving humanity while burning calories in process. While it debuted for Android at $8 (the app is now $4), you can save a few ducats by picking it up for free on Google Glass.

We also noticed “musiXmatch” making its Glassware debut, an app that identifies music and displays lyrics across Glass’ tiny display. You may remember the Glass Team hinting at new apps for tagging music, after this core functionality was stripped away from Glass in a recent update. While we’re expecting to see a lot of great things during this year’s Google I/O, it seems developers are preparing for the event by releasing some of their wares ahead of all the mayhem.

For Glass Explorers, you can grab all the new Glassware mentioned in this post by either visiting the MyGlass app on your Android device, or by visiting the online store here.
