iPhone Users Can Now View Texts on Google Glass


In an update on their Google+ page, Google has announced that users with Google Glass and an iPhone can now view their text messages on their glasses.

Prior to this, iPhone users had to use the device to view the text messages, but they should now be able to view them directly on their glasses. However, this feature is so far read only, meaning you won’t be able to use your Google Glass to reply, but only view the texts you receive. This is mostly Apple’s fault, due to their limited APIs.

The official statement from Google:

iOS fans, by popular demand you can now get texts from your friends on Glass. Get started by going to your iPhone’s Bluetooth settings and turning on “Show Notifications” for your paired Glass. When you receive a new text message, it will appear as a notification on Glass. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to reply from Glass due to some limitations with iOS. (Android fans, don’t feel left out – you’ve got SMS on Glass already.)

To connect and use your iPhone with Google Glass, you will first need to download the MyGlass App from the App Store.
