Take Photographs and Videos With a Blink of an Eye

Ok, so you can’t just blink and automatically take a photo or video, but you can instantly capture the moment by saying “take a photo” or “take a video”. You won’t have to dig around your purse for your phone or camera to take a photo, so you’ll never miss a photo or video worthy moment again.

Never Get Lost Again

Your Google Glass has built in GPS which is ideal for people who go hiking or bike riding. Instead of stopping to pull out your phone or GPS device, you can see the map right on the glass while you’re moving. It can come in handy when you’re driving to unknown places, too.

Make Phone Calls From Your Glasses

When you connect your smart phone to your Google Glass, you can make phone calls, dictate messages, and attach videos or photos all without ever taking your phone out of your purse or pocket.

Never Miss a Social Media Update

If you are addicted to social media or rely on the social networks for your business, you might end up loving the social network notifications feature of Google Glass. As long as you are using your phone’s internet feature or are in range of Wi-Fi, you will see your social media network updates right on the glass. You can up your game with multi-tasking, since you won’t check your phone or laptop for social media updates – they’ll just flash before your eyes.
