Step 1: Update your MyGlass app (Android version 3.2, iOS version 0.7.0)
Step 2: Check for the latest Glass software update (XE20.1)
Step 3: Check out how contacts on Glass just got way more convenient
The new MyGlass app is coming along with some upgrades on how your contacts work. If you've got an Android, then you've got access to the new app right now. If you're rockin iOS, then you'll see it in the next week or so.
What’s new with contacts? First off, Explorers have been telling us that when they choose a contact from Glass they’d also like the option to choose how they message them. Now when you tap on one of your contacts, you can swipe between Hangouts, email or SMS - whichever strikes your fancy at that moment.
What else? Your entire phone address book is now available on Glass thanks to Google Contacts. You can access 20 of your most recent and starred contacts by voice and the rest are just a swipe away. Starring a contact is really easy. Just find them in your phone and click the star. If the star is filled in, then the contact has been favorited.
If you’ve got an Android phone
Once your Glass updates to XE20.1 you’ll be ready to go. All the contacts you previously listed in MyGlass will automatically be starred in Google Contacts. Just go to the People app on your phone and you can edit and star contacts right there.
If you’ve got an iPhone
To access all your iPhone contacts on Glass, you’ll have to follow a couple quick steps, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered:
1. Select Contacts from the sidebar of the MyGlass app and click through the contacts setup screens. (There are only a couple.)
2. When you get to the Import contacts screen, select Allow on the pop up asking permission for MyGlass to access your phone’s address book.
3. The next screen to pop up will show you how to keep your phone’s contacts synced with your Google Account. That way, when you add someone new to your phone’s address book or edit someone’s info, it will update on Glass too.
4. Now that you’re all synced up, you can access and star your contacts through your MyGlass app. Just click the star to the right of their name.
Once you’re all set up, your contacts on Glass will update whenever you edit someone on your phone’s address book or add a new contact. So next time you make a new friend and add their number to your phone, you’ll be able to find them on Glass too.
Now you’re all set!
