Google Glass owners that have been patiently waiting for the arrival of support for Android notifications on their eyewear, will be pleased to know that it has finally arrived and Google has now made them available.
Google today announced that notifications from Android smartphones connected to Google Glass will now mirror notifications directly from the smartphone to the eyewear.
Android notifications were previously available but only via supported applications that were compatible with the Glass eyewear, such as Hangouts, Gmail and the like. To re-cap Google Glass eyewear is fitted with a high resolution display which gives you the equivalent display of a 25 inch HD display from eight feet away and is positioned just in front of your right eye. Google explains :
“Today we’re launching Notification Sync on Glass, which means you can see your Android phone app notifications at a glance. You may have already seen this with Android Wear, but now when you put Glass on, you can get the information you need when you need it—all without taking your phone out of your pocket.
The latest Glass update is heading your way this week. You’ll also need the newest version of MyGlass (v3.3.0). Don’t worry, it’ll be here on Wednesday. Until then, check out this short video to learn how to set it up.”

The Glass eyewear is also equipped with a 5 megapixel camera that can record HD video in 720P, together with 12GB of internal storage for apps, files and media that is synced with Google’s Cloud Storage, as well as connectivity provided by with Bluetooth and WiFi. Recently Google has opened a new store based in London allowing those interested to try the innovative eyewear out.
