MyGlass Android companion app now acts as remote control for Google Glass


MyGlass, the companion app Google created to allow you to screencast your Glass view to anyone with an Android phone, has now been updated to allow it to control Glass, reports Engadget.

The move was in response to feedback from Glass Explorers that “controlling its UI via swipes, nods and voice commands can sometimes be… awkward” … 

I have to say this approach seems even more awkward to me. Getting your phone out to control Glass seems to rather defeat the object of not letting a device get in the way of what you want to see and do.

The updated app is available from Google Play, but some users are reporting that it doesn’t yet work, suggesting Google has yet to complete the matching over-the-air updates of Glass.
