Google’s Glass Accessory Store Is Coming Online (Wow. Stuff’s Expensive!)
Google is bringing an official accessory store for Google Glass online this evening, based on reports first shared in a private Google forum for Glass Explorers.

The store appears to be part of the “My Glass” control panel area that all Explorers use to manage their device and its apps. It’s also reachable via the Google Glass Help website, which has a new section called “Accessories” that links to sections labeled Charger, Earbuds, Shades and shields, Swapping frames and Pouch.
The Shades and Shields support material says that Google has “partnered with Maui Jim and Zeal Optics to include a sunglass shade with every new Glass.” Each Help section, except for “Swapping frames” links readers to the accessory store.
At the moment, the store only shows four products. Only one is listed as being in stock, and they’re all quite expensive:
- Extra Mono Earbud: $50 (out of stock)
- Clear Shield: $75
- Extra Cable and Charger: $50 (out of stock)
- Extra Pouch: $50 (out of stock)
Here’s what it looks like:
Some Explorers are accessing the store at glass.google.com/getglass, but others are unable to see the store because Google isn’t recognizing their accounts as being a Glass owner.
We’ve reached out to Google for comment on the store and will update this post if and when we learn more.
