Google also confirms Google Play Music for Glass and stereo earbuds

Google has published a new page related to its Glass Explorer Program that lets anyone sign up for a chance to get the latest in wearable technology. Building on the recent expansion that let first-round Explorers invite three friends to get their own Google Glass, this new sign-up form simply asks for a name, email, country and reason for wanting the headset, and lets you know "if a spot opens up."

This impending expansion of the Google Glass program is U.S.-only at the moment, and they can't guarantee that anyone will get invited, but given the wording on the page it seems as though they plan to do something meaningful with the list of people interested in plopping the $1500 down for the tech.

Taking to Google+, we also have confirmation that Google Play Music and a new set of earbudsĀ for Glass will be coming soon as well. Just as many speculated yesterday, Google plans to roll out Google Play Music All Access on Glass with the command "Ok Glass, Listen to..." in the next few weeks. Accompanying the announcement is confirmation that there will be stereo earbuds that plug into the Micro USB port of Glass, much like the new mono earbudĀ that ships with version 2 of the hardware.
