The Verge noted that Twitter user Nicolas Gramlich spotted one more change to the redesigned web version of the Play Store: support for Google Glass apps.

Google’s updated Play Store includes mention of Glass, implying that the company’s headset will be managed through the store soon. Users who have linked Glass with their Google account have been seeing the device in the site’s “compatible devices” list when viewing apps … 

This is likely just a logical step to take given that Google was updating the interface anyway, rather than signalling that Glass is close to public launch, but with the recent dropping of ‘Project’ from the name, it’s another step along the way.

Google’s decision to include Glass apps in the Play Store – rather than on a dedicated site – also underlines the company’s belief that, despite the $1500 price-tag of the Explorer Edition, Glass has the potential to be a mass-market product.
