We’ve got a new update coming your way. This one’s for all the shutterbugs and World Cup fans out there.
Over the past few months we’ve rolled out features like vignettes and sharing photos in Hangouts. Even still, we know you want more options when it comes to your #throughglass photos. Sometimes a photo just looks better with a filter… or maybe after cropping out that guy who photobombed you.
Later this week, we’re taking a big step with a photo-sharing update for the MyGlass app for Android. With the updated app, when you take a picture on Glass, you’ll see it instantly on your Android phone when you open the MyGlass app. Tap the image to open it, apply your filter du jour (or wave the #nofilter flag), and export it to the photo-sharing app of your choice – Instagram, Facebook, VSCO – whichever strikes your fancy. Oh, and did we mention you don’t need to be connected to Wi-Fi?
We know, we know - what about MyGlass for iOS? We’re working on it. Stay tuned.
Google Now cards
World Cup: He dribbles down the line, crosses it into the box, and it’s a header. Gooooooaaaaaaaallll! Follow the World Cup on Glass when you set up notifications on Google Now. All you have to do is add your team or click YES when you see the option to get match updates on Google Now on your phone. Here's what you'll see on your phone:
You’ll get updates about upcoming matches, matches in progress, finished matches and division standings.
Parking Location: So tempted to quote Ashton Kutcher… but we won’t. Now if you forget where you parked your car, just look to the left of your Glass home screen and you’ll find your Parking location card. You can follow the map back to your parking spot.
Track your packages: Get notifications on Glass when your packages ship or are delivered. Just go to your settings on the Google Now mobile app and make sure you’ve answered Yes to receiving “package updates based on your gmail.”
Explorers have told us that they want more battery notifications so we added a mobile notification to let you know when your Glass battery is low. If you’re using the latest Android MyGlass app, you’ll now get a notification if your Glass drops below 20%.
