Users will soon be able control Google Glass with their smartphones

Google logoIf you are enamored of the concept of Glass save for that whole hands-free-ish control scheme, you’re in luck: there is an app that will let you control the glasses using your smartphone. What are the remaining advantages of Glass if not to prevent usage of your smartphone? We’re not sure, exactly, but if you’re a Glass owner trying to work that out, here is your opportunity.

As Engadget reported, MyGlass is an Android app developed by Google that allows Glass users to control their devices from their smartphones. Users can then eschew the head-snapping, frame-tapping, and voice commands that Glass normally requires to do its thing.

Users will soon be able control Google Glass with their smartphones

Google+ users posting about the update note that the Glass hardware might require an update for the smartphone controls to take, as they appear not to be working yet. Once the update is out, Glass interactions have the potential to be a bit less surreptitious, so users could snap photos or take videos without looking. But that is all assuming they can control the app without looking at it, which, if we are being honest with ourselves, renders Glass semi-pointless.
