You’ve shared your wishes, we’ve made our list and checked it twice, and now we’re closing out 2013 with some of your most popular requests.
We get a lot of questions from Explorers about ways to make Glass even more secure, so this month we’re adding the ability to lock your screen. Just like with your laptop or phone, no one can use your locked Glass until you enter your secret Glass handshake using taps and swipes. You can set it up in Settings.
You’ve told us you love video calls on Glass, but you’ve made it clear that you want Hangouts messages on Glass too. Well now we’ve got it. Chatting with your best friend, messaging everyone from your ski trip at once, sending picture messages… all of it is now possible on Glass. You can enable the Hangouts Glassware and update your messaging preferences at MyGlass.
Upload to YouTube
Some of the videos you record through Glass are pure gold, and worthy of sharing with other people. You can now upload those must-share moments by enabling the YouTube Glassware on MyGlass. Once you’re done recording, either tap on the video and swipe to the YouTube share card, or say “ok glass, share with YouTube.” So go on, share that video of you at the zoo, #throughglass.
Glass is about helping you look up and experience the world around you without getting bogged down by technology. Based on this philosophy, we've got a new setting that lets you quickly and easily capture the moments you care about with a simple wink of the eye. Whether it's capturing an amazing sunset on an evening walk, or photographing your receipt for the lunch you'll need to expense, you can now stay in the moment and wink to take a picture instantly. If you want to turn it on, just swipe over to Settings.
We’re starting with pictures, but just think about what else is possible. Imagine a day where you’re riding in the back of a cab and you just wink at the meter to pay. You wink at a pair of shoes in a shop window and your size is shipped to your door. You wink at a cookbook recipe and the instructions appear right in front of you – hands-free, no mess, no fuss. Pretty cool, right?
We recently introduced music and it really is the gift that keeps on giving. Music All Access subscribers can pick between their playlists and radio, or try "I'm feeling lucky" to create a radio station based on previous listening history. In addition to using voice, you can also tap on "ok glass" and then "listen" to choose your favorite songs.
Great news iPhone fans, the iOS app is ready, but we need you to have this month’s Glass update first before it will work. We know we spilled the beans a bit too soon, but we’ll let you know when it’s available for download later this week.
As always, you can find the rest of our updates in the MyGlass Explorers Community.
If we had a nickel for every time someone has asked about prescription lenses for Glass… well, we’d have a lot of nickels. So we want you to be the first to know that the Titanium Collection is here, with a handful of new styles for Glass so you can make it your own. Whether you wear prescription glasses or just want a new look, we’ve got four feather-light titanium frames designed just for you. And if you need prescription lenses and have vision insurance (such as VSP), your policy might even help cover your new frames. Explorers can access the Titanium Collection tomorrow afternoon, along with two new styles of twist-on shades.
This is only the beginning, and we can’t wait to hear which style is your style.
