Yesterday Google released an update to their niche wearable device complete with the ability to browse the web. This means that they have to automatically have to improve the voice command abilities of glass. This is simply because you have no keyboard to type in. The update brings the ability to use voice commands for reading text aloud, replying to calls, and answering calls as well. And don’t forget the sharing!
This update allows Glass to see the web in a more traditional way than it was allowed before, here with a “View website” button appearing after one does a search for a term of their choice. Glass allows the user to view a webpage in any of several ways: Scrolling, Clicking, “Looking around”, and Zooming. Each of these abilities works with Glass’ touchpad (at the user’s temple):
“• Scroll – Slide your finger forward on the touchpad to scroll down.
• Zoom – Slide two fingers forward or backward to zoom.
• Look around – With two fingers down on the touchpad, move your head around to pan.
• Click – As you look around, you can tap to select anything in the center of the screen.” – Project Glass
