In order to properly use Google Glass, a combination of voice commands, head nods and finger swipes need to be used to get the wearable device to do what you want it to do. We’re sure many Google Glass users have been dying to be able to manipulate their wearable device by using their Android device, and today, Google has released its MyGlass app which finally lets you do just that.
The MyGlass app can be used on either an Android smartphone or tablet and allows you to have some control over your Google Glass. The application has both remote control and remote input support, meaning you can perform all of the commands that would normally be done on your Google Glass straight from the application.
We can’t help but think the MyGlass app could be useful to many Google Glass users, although it certainly defeats the purpose of owning the wearable device. The whole purpose of Google Glass is to be able to easily share what’s around you as well as access content without having to rely on staring at your phone. The MyGlass app should help Google Glass wearers navigate their device if they’re having trouble, but we think it’d be silly for a Glass wearer to be caught staring at their smartphone in order to use the glasses.
