Today’s the day to become a Glass Explorer

We let the cat out of the bag, you marked your calendars, and the time has finally arrived. If you're a US resident who is 18+, you can purchase Glass and join the Explorer Program at glass.google.com/getglass

The Explorer bundle costs $1500+tax and includes your favorite shade or frame, a charger, a case and a mono earbud. As an Explorer, your feedback will help to shape how Glass evolves over time. 

We’ve got a limited number of spots available, so don’t wait too long – we can't wait to meet you and hear about your first adventures with Glass.

#GlassUpdates are back with KitKat for Glass, photo bundles & more  

You’ve been asking us when the next round of updates were coming. Well, they’re coming later this week! We know it’s been a little while, but this is a big one and we think it’s well worth the wait. Here’s what you’ll find in the new release:

KitKat for Glass – Our most exciting update is subtle, but big. We’ve been working on a significant upgrade to a new version of the Glass software. It’s not a change you can see, but it brings improved battery life and makes Glass more reliable and easier to update in the future. And now that Glass runs Android KitKat, developers can write Glassware using the latest Android SDK goodness, along with new features from our GDK.

Photo bundles – This one has been a long-standing request from our Explorers: now when you scroll through your timeline, your photos, videos and vignettes from each day will be organized in bundles so that you can swipe less and see more.

Photo replies in Hangouts – Photo sharing has been really popular amongst our Explorers, so we’ve added new ways to send photos in Hangout messages. The next time someone asks “what’s up,” tap “Reply” and then take a photo to show them. (If you already took the perfect photo, you can still tap to “Send” it in a Hangout message.)

Sending feedback – We always want to hear feedback from you on ways we can make Glass better so we’re making it even easier. Tap on the device info card in Settings and tell us what’s on your mind. If you need help, you can still send us an email, call us, or post in the Explorers Community.

Voice command sorting – With new features and Glassware, your voice command menu has grown pretty long. When you tap or say “ok glass,” voice commands are now sorted by recency and frequency, making it easier to see the commands you use most often and faster to access them from the touch menu. 

Video calls – We hold ourselves to high standards for the features that we build, and video calls aren’t living up to these standards. Explorers have told us so directly, and fewer than 10% of them use video calls. For this reason, we’ve made the hard decision to remove video calls from Glass until the experience is better. We don’t know when that will be, but in the meantime, keep an eye on MyGlass as more Glassware is built and released – we’re already seeing the developer community work on other video streaming services. We’ve always said that feedback from Explorers shapes Glass, and this is no exception.

…and more – This is a massive update and we couldn’t fit all the changes into this post, so watch the Glass Journal in the Explorers Community to see the rest.

now I'm scared to update my glass. i like the video calls but they are sort of laggy and its kind of inconvenient to use it front face only.

Glassware Spotlight - Swingbyte

If you’re reading this, it’s probably safe to say you aren’t competing at The #Masters this weekend. And if you’re not competing at The Masters this weekend, it’s also safe to say that you wouldn’t mind shaving a few strokes off your golf game. 

The new Glassware from Swingbyte helps  you do just that. Simply attach Swingbyte to your club, swing, and immediately get real time swing data. No need  to reach into your pocket or step away from the tee.

Pro Tip
While Swingbyte for Glass is great at the range, it’s equally as amazing for putting practice. You can immediately get feedback on whether or not you’re hitting your putts straight. You’ll be ready for the 2015 Masters in no time.*

*The Google Glass team cannot be held liable if you do not in fact qualify for the 2015 Masters.

Wow, what a morning! We’re happy to see so many new faces (and frames) in the Explorer Program.  Just a quick update that – ack – we've sold out of Cotton (white), so things are moving really fast.

You can still purchase Glass and join the Explorer Program at glass.google.com/getglass, but hop to it because we’ll be closing up shop tonight.

Have questions about Glass? #askanexplorer
 
Ask an Explorer

Tomorrow Google is offering a brief window to sign up for +Google Glass. Are you considering Glass, but have a few questions first? Feel free to post in the comments and I or fellow Explorers will do our best to answer them.  

If you'd prefer a live format, we will also host an open Hangout later today at 8PM (PDT). Current Explorers are welcome to join and help answer questions, but be sure to save room for those who are still deciding.

Also, if you're an Explorer who would like to share your time today, please use the hashtag #askanexplorer  to notify your fellow Explorers. Cheers!

+John Bauer it's not just about manufacturing costs. It also costs tons to invent the device ect. Of course they're going to make the best profit possible they're a company. Of course it's too expensive though but people are buying it so why lower it?

Head up, hands free: Glass Guide Sachit put this video together so his parents could see what it was like to climb the face of Half Dome #throughglass. Don't let the cables scare you. He knows what he’s doing.

Become a Glass Explorer on Tues April 15

Whoops. So... we’d planned to post this next week, but it looks like the cat's out of the bag now. Over the past several months, we’ve been trying out different ways to expand the Explorer program. Some of you signed up at Google I/O, some told us what you would do #ifihadglass , some were referred by a friend, some joined through their school or university. Our Explorers are moms, bakers, surgeons, rockers, and each new Explorer has brought a new perspective that is making Glass better. But every day we get requests from those of you who haven’t found a way into the program yet, and we want your feedback too. So in typical Explorer Program fashion, we’re trying something new. 

Next Tuesday, April 15th at 6am PDT, we’re opening up some spots in the Glass Explorer Program. Any adult in the US* can become an Explorer by visiting our site and purchasing Glass for $1500 + tax – and it now comes with your favorite shade or frame, thanks to feedback from our current Explorers. The number of spots available is limited, so mark your calendar if you want to get in. You can find us on Tuesday at: http://google.com/glass/start/how-to-get-one

We’re excited to meet our new Explorers, and we can’t wait to hear your thoughts about Glass.

*To everyone outside the US... we know. Sorry :( We’re just not ready yet to bring Glass to other countries.
