Google Glass will now show your mobile notifications

Android, Google, Wearables

Google has released a software update that has Glass showing your phone notifications – making Glass genuinely useful!

The update works using the same principles as an Android Wear smartwatch: When you receive a notification from an app, such as a WhatsApp Message, Glass will alert you – and it appears it will tap into the same app-specific data as Wear – like in the below video when it shows the photo attached to the message.

The notifications update is bundled with MyGlass (v3.3.0), which should be available from today.
