MyGlass app on Android

The MyGlass app helps set up your Glass and adds a few other features like identifying your location for turn-by-turn directions, sending and receiving SMS messages, screencasting your Glass display, and more.

Get MyGlass from the Google Play store. You'll need Android OS 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or higher.

  3. Enter your wireless network password and select OK.

Pairing and connecting Glass with your phone using Bluetooth:

  1. On your Glass device, in the Settings bundle, open the Bluetooth card. Select Android.
  2. On the MyGlass app, open the side navigation drawer, and select Device.
  3. Select Pair with Glass. Your phone will now search for your device.

Glass should now be connected to your MyGlass app, letting you use Glass as a Bluetooth headset, as well as use features like SMS and directions.

MyGlass features


The MyGlass app helps your Glass know where you are and helps you get to where you want to go. If you've turned on location access in your phone's settings, the MyGlass app updates your location in Glass when needed for features like turn-by-turn directions or finding interesting things wherever you are.


Once you are paired to the MyGlass app, you can send and receive SMS through Glass.


Start a screencast and let others see what you see through Glass via the display on your Android phone or tablet. You can even control Glass from a screencast. Swipe on your screen like you would your touchpad to use your phone as a remote control.

To start a screencast, open the menu from the action bar and select Screencast. If your device is already connected (via the Device menu), a screencast will begin immediately. Otherwise, you will be asked to pair Glass with your phone.

Your Android phone will then show a live view of what you're seeing on Glass, and the MyGlass notification in the notification bar will update to reflect the active screencast.

To end a screencast, touch the MyGlass notification in the notification bar to return to the MyGlass app or press your Android's back or home button to exit.


If you've enabled tethering to connect Glass to the Internet, the MyGlass app will attempt to make sure that tethering is always turned on, even if you restart your phone.

Glass and Google Voice

The MyGlass app is compatible with Google Voice app for Android. All calls and SMS messages can be sent via the Google Voice service, depending on your phone's configuration. If Google Voice is configured on Android, text messages sent from Glass will reflect the Google Voice phone number instead of the Android phone number.
