Google announced today that it has added some new functionality to Google Glass that will be appealing to music lovers.

Over the course of the next few weeks, Google will be rolling out a new voice command that will let users access tracks from Google Play Music. Just say, "Okay Glass, listen to..." and start listening to whatever you want.

Naturally, this should be a ready-to-go feature once Glass launches more widely to consumers. It does work with Google's recently launched Spotify competitor All Access.

We recently got a look at the new version of Glass itself. This includes earbuds. Google had this to say today:

We’re also introducing stereo earbuds designed specifically for Glass. They’re lightweight and uniquely engineered to deliver crisp, full-range audio while still letting you hear your surroundings. You can also rock out in style by customizing your buds with five interchangeable color caps.

Current Glass Explorers (the users who have gained access to the device) will be getting notifications via email over the coming weeks with more details on the new stuff.
