Google has added a MyGlass update that allows Android users to turn the companion app into a remote control.
The update comes after some users noted the interaction behind the Glass technology wasn’t as smooth as anticipated. They reported awkward transitions among the swipe bar, head nods and voice commands.
The MyGlass app, which can be used as a remote control for the headgear, fixes this issue. It allows users to “touch/swipe/tap” to control the Glass user interface through the screencast experience, as described on Google Play.
The Verge noted that the update should also make it easier to take photos and video surreptitiously.
Some Google+ users have reported the remote control update doesn’t work yet and may require a matching Glass update. As its Google Play page states, “If you don’t have Glass, then downloading this will be a waste of time.”
