Google announces Glass Enterprise Edition 2 now available for developers

In Augmented Reality News

February 5, 2020 – Google has announced that its Glass Enterprise Edition 2 is now available for developers. Glass Enterprise Edition 2 has helped people working in logistics, manufacturing, field services and a variety of other industries do their jobs more efficiently through hands-free access to the information and tools they need to do their job. According to Google, Enterprises who have deployed Glass with experiences built by its network of solution providers, have seen faster production times, improved quality, and reduced costs.

Since Glass Enterprise Edition 2 launched last May, Google states that it has seen strong demand from developers and businesses who are interested in building new, helpful enterprise solutions for Glass. In order to make it easier for them to start working with Glass, they can now purchase devices directly from Google hardware resellers, such as CDW, Mobile Advance or SHI.

Glass Enterprise Edition 2 is built on Android, which allows developers to work with a familiar platform, and businesses to integrate the services and APIs (application programming interfaces) they already use. Google has also shared new open source applications and code samples, including sample layouts and UI components that may be helpful examples for those just getting started developing for Glass.
