The search giant has created an “appointment calendar” for Google Glass users, allowing users to create their own appointments in the search giant’s virtual calendar, a feature that allows Google Glass to display appointments for people who have already made appointments.
The Google Calendar app, available for Android devices, works in tandem with Google Glass, allowing the user to browse and access all of the Google calendar items that they are currently viewing, while the search engine can also show a Google Calendar calendar for the person currently viewing the page.
The feature is a significant step towards Google Glass’ broader goal of making the technology accessible to the wider population.
Google announced its intention to release Google Glass as a smart phone device in the second quarter of 2017, and the device is expected to be available in the third quarter of that year.
Glass has already been available for the first time with Google’s Android Wear watch and Google’s Nexus 6 smartwatch, and will be supported on other Android devices as well.
The company’s first Glass-enabled smartphone, the Nexus 5X, was released in September of 2017.
Google’s announcement came days after the company revealed it was developing its own version of Glass that will work with Android Wear devices.
Glass is expected by the end of 2020, and by 2021, Google is expected do away with the Nexus 6 as the default Android Wear device.
Google Glass was previously available as an accessory for Google’s $199 Google Glass camera.
Google recently began rolling out a new version of Google Glass for Windows and Mac OS X.
