Google first launched their Field Trip application for their Google Glass eyewear back in August of last year, but since its launch the application has not been able to recognise voice commands, until today.
From today owners of Google Glass that I’ve installed the Google Field Trip application will now be able to launch it by simply saying ‘OK Glass, Explore Nearby,’.
Once launched the Google Glass Field Trip app will then allow you to explore and discover interesting facts about the world around your local vicinity. Check out the promotional video created by Google showing features Field Trip app for Glass in action.
