Google Glass, the search giant's significant step into wearable computers, has found a home for applications.

The search company on Tuesday launched the expected redesign of its online Google Play marketplace. Early this morning, an Android user, Nicolas Gramlich, posted a screenshot to his Google+ page showing that one of the titles available in the marketplace includes support for Google Glass.

That screenshot came just a few hours after the Android and Me site posted a screenshot showing that Google Glass is included as a supported device for Google Play applications. Upon choosing Google Glass in the dropdown, however, users find that it cannot be chosen because they "have not opened the Google Play Store app recently on this device."

Until that functionality is included, Android users can browse the search company's newly redesigned Play marketplace. At its I/O Conference earlier this year, Google announced that it would redesign Play. The new design includes a tile-based approach to sifting through programs and allows users to see categories, charts listing the top applications, and new releases.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
