Shazam, Duolingo and several other apps head to Google Glass

Sarah Silbert

Just ahead of Google I/O, a slew of new Google Glass apps are hitting the MyGlass store. The new downloads include the popular music-recognizing service Shazam and Duolingo, which offers free foreign-language courses. Two fitness-focused apps, Runtastic and 94Fifty Basketball, are also new additions to the Glassware family. Rounding out the list are the GuidiGO personal tour guide, an app for The Guardian, Livestream, MusicXmatch, and the game Zombies, Run! Finally, the Allthecooks app has been updated with voice commands, so you can use Glass hands-free while following recipes.

While I/O is expected to be all about Android Wear, Google's platform for wearables, Google Glass will likely make an appearance as well. The Glass team says Glassware -- the fancy term for Glass-specific apps -- has grown 80 percent in the past six months, and we may get a look at some of the just-announced additions at the keynote tomorrow.
