We expect Google to talk about Google Glass tomorrow. If you don’t know what’s happening tomorrow, its the day the company’s annual developers conference takes place. Its been a busy week for Glass anyway. Just yesterday the wearable device was finally made available for sale in a country other than the U.S. Interested customers in the UK can now pick one up through the Play Store. Just before Google I/O 2014 where lots of announcements are expected, a handful of “Glassware” or apps for the device have been released.

There are a dozen new apps to be precise so you have a lot to play with today if you happen to have this $1,500 piece of technology. Apps for Google Glass are called Glassware, in case you didn’t know, it just sounds that little bit cooler.

First up is Runstastic, a fitness related application that’ll include a collection of workouts to keep you in shape. Duolingo comes to Glass as well and aims to make it easier for you to learn a new language. The Guardian’s Google Glass application will beam breaking news alerts right in front of your face so that you never miss out on what’s happening around the world. Shazam finally lands on the device, simply say “OK Glass, Recognize the song,” to have it find out what song is playing around you.

The full list of Glassware released for Google Glass today is available here. There are some sports related apps as well and a simple game makes it way to Glass too.
