Google Glass is a revolutionary device that enable people to surf the internet, stream videos, and take pictures with no need for additional equipment. But it seems like only computer geeks are going to be able to get their hands on this new technology. Now that Google has entered into the wearable smartphone market, Apple and others are racing to make Glass available to more mainstream users. Can you imagine if you could simply wave your Glass over your shoulder and have instant access to all of the internet at your fingertips?
You probably already know that Google has already signed deals with several hotels to provide internet access while you’re traveling. It’s unclear if these deals will extend to regular hotel rooms, or only to restaurants. Either way, the internet will be widely accessible no matter where you go. If you take a break from surfing the web, you’ll be able to quickly glance up restaurant reviews, news, and weather forecasts.
If you use a smart phone or tablet to web on the internet, you can already check your twitter, Facebook, and other apps. This feature would be extremely useful if you were traveling. You wouldn’t have to take out your phone and turn it on just to read your e-mails or updates. With Glass, you’ll be able to read and reply to these messages from any device. If you don’t want to reply to an email, you can just ignore it or save it for later.
Applications will be able to access information at the same speed as you can talk on your Glass. You’ll be able to do everything that you’d do on your phone without having to type anything in. This opens up possibilities like being able to make reservations, pay, and search for restaurants. Since you’ll be able to access these apps just by looking at your screen, you won’t even need a headset or any extra devices to use them.
But you won’t want to just download any app you find on Google’s site. Check for reviews and information about the most popular ones. You should also be on the lookout for apps that are not yet available on the device. Since Glass is so new, many developers are still working on making their existing apps compatible with the device. When Google Glass becomes available, we could see a huge surge in apps made specifically for it.
Before you download an app, go through the reviews and see what other people think of it. This way, you’ll know if an app is worth your money or if it will just prove to be a big waste of your time and space on your phone. There are apps for just about everything on the market now, so don’t feel like you have to wait to see what’s available.
With so many different apps available now, you could easily lose track of what you have. Don’t worry though. The interface will let you know what you’ve got on your device. Plus, you’ll be able to see how many users are using it in real time, so you’ll know if there are certain features you really need. This is very helpful since you won’t waste time on features you don’t use.
It may seem like there’s a ton of apps that aren’t compatible with Google Glass. However, the truth is, there are some that are compatible and are being used by the people who are planning on buying the device. If you want to download an app, all you have to do is visit the Google Play Store and search for it. If you want more detailed information, however, you may want to check out the official Google blog.
