Hey, wanna go get coffee?
iPhone users, time to dust off that Google Glass – it’s about to get just that much more useful. Given all its strengths, Glass’s support for iOS users has always been just a little bit – erm – subpar when compared to what Android users get (and that’s not entirely a fault of Google, I’m sure), but today Google is announcing a change that should make a world or two of difference – support for pushing text notifications from a user’s iPhone to Google Glass.
To enable the feature, you’ll need to update to a new version of Glass that’s slated to arrive later this week, and then turn the “Show Notifications” functionality on under Bluetooth settings for your Glass. It’s a simple little change that makes Glass feel just that much more connected to your mobile device – and notification pushing has always been one of the things Glass is best suited for.
Google is also upgrading Calendar support on Glass, bringing a new “Calendar Glassware” option that allows users to “change the title, time, location, and RSVP” of a calendar card, straight from Glass and using your voice. A small change, sure, but a welcome one for those of us who want to have everything neat and tidy.
