When Google first released the plans to develop and make Google glasses, the technology crowd and young professionals instantly found a product that they could love. The excitement of the tech crowd was understandable knowing that this product is from Google. The Google glasses promised to redefine the way people communicate. To introduce the product formally, Google announced a marketing campaign on Twitter during the first half of 2013, and invited users to use a certain hashtag. If chosen, they will become one of the first 8,000 users and owners of Google glasses. In March 2013, the winners were notified and invited to visit Google to receive and be fitted for their glasses. However, due to some technical glitches and other security concerns, Google announced that it will pull the product from the market to continue research and development. This move by Google does not mean that you can no longer enjoy the benefits of Google glasses.
According to a spokesperson from Google, the company will take the product back to the laboratory for testing and improvement and will be released if management is satisfied the Google glasses are perfect products. Just recently, there have been rumours about the potential release of Google Glass 2. According to reports, there is a possibility that the product will be released before the end of 2016, probably November 2016. The excitement persisted when it was noted that during the first two quarters of 2016, Google advertised jobs related to the Glass division, with Ivy Ross and Tony Fadell on board.
What can you expect from your Google Glasses?
The wearable glasses from Google incorporate a number of technologies that can help simplify your life. For example, it was reported that the Google Glasses will come with a GPS, a camera, and a microphone. This means that the Google Glasses can do the complex work and functions of a high-end Smartphone. The glasses can be operated via voice activation, for example, you can take a picture of a building or a street by speaking, or you can also draft a message by simply dictating the message. Since this is a product of Google, it can also provide you with the same services, such as getting directions, or making a video call. In short, Google Glasses can also become your personal assistant and a tool that can help simplify your work.
