INTERNET GIANT Google's Glass augmented reality eyewear now has remote control, thanks to an update to the Myglass companion app.
Looking to please those not keen on the idea of swiping their face or talking to themselves, Google has released an update to its Myglass app that lets users of the eyewear control it with their smartphone. According to the app's updated description, the handful of people who own Google Glass devices can now swipe and tap their smartphone's display to navigate Glass user interface.
As well as updating its Myglass app, Google revealed on Thursday that there will be plenty more apps coming to improve the Glass experience soon, and confirmed that the Google Glass App Store is coming next year once the device becomes commercial available.
Details about the upcoming Google Glass App Store are pretty thin on the ground, although we do know that apps from the Google Play store will not be supported.
We're also pretty sure that the Glass App Store won't feature any pornographic apps, with Google having been quick to ban "obscene" apps from the eyewear following the launch of a subtly titled app called "Tits and Glass". Google promptly banned the app, and updated its terms and conditions to prevent others from bringing porn to the device.
Myglass is available to download for free from the Google Play store and is compatible with devices running Android 4.0.3 and above, although it won't be much use if you don't have a Google Glass headset.
