Google announced that it is about to start another phase of the Google Glass beta program. So far, thousands of users have been testing Google Glass and there have been monthly updates to the software. Now Google is getting ready to upgrade the hardware with a one-time swap offer in November. One aimed at those who wear prescription glasses.
Google says that the new Glass hardware will “work with future lines of shades and prescription frames, and it will come with a mono earbud.” We do not know if the battery size is changing or the camera sensor is being improved, but we know that Glass will soon be compatible with prescription glasses. That should make a lot of prescription glasses wearers who also want to use Glass very happy.
Many users who wanted to test the device and wore glasses were forced to either switch to contacts or just not use Glass. Well, as of now, if you have bought Glass before October 28th, you can swap your device for a new one, although you can only swap once. Just sign up and then you will have 60 days to complete the swap when the program starts. Now everyone can wear Glass.
