Google just dropped a few more updates for Glass via Google+ to help end 2013 in the best way possible. Included in this shiny new update are the Wall Street Journal, Weather Alerts, Winkfeed (different from yesterday), Upload to YouTube and Hangouts. All in all, it’s a pretty hefty update for Glass fans and offers a few more reasons to consider shelling out $1500 courtesy of the money you got from returning all those ugly sweaters your grandparents are preparing to give you on Christmas day.

We’re not done with #glassupdates just yet. Here are a few more Glassware that are now live on MyGlass.

Wall Street Journal
Read and listen to the news you need and the Journal stories you love, with live updates on Breaking News, Politics, Technology, Business and more.

Weather Alert
Weather Alert keeps you informed about approaching severe weather by sending you real time alerts right to your Glass. From air quality to tornado warnings, you can choose from over 120 alerts to customize which alerts you receive.

Winkfeed – no, not the same Wink from yesterday – lets you stay up to date with the topics you love from your favorite news sites and RSS feeds. Select your feeds and Winkfeed will deliver your news directly to your Glass allow you to easily tap and save to Pocket.

And as you saw in yesterday’s announcement, you can also now use Hangouts and Upload to YouTube:
