Google declared to be discontinuation of its original Google Glass headsets after sensing the commercial failure statement go public on 16 March 2023…!! The announcement stated that the search giant is no longer selling its Glass Enterprise Edition 2 headsets, extracting it from the market later this year.
Intended to allow workers to stay connected in a hands-free way, the company segued the AR product into a solution for businesses and industrial customers. Prior to 2019, this lineup, dubbed Glass Enterprise Edition, received a second-generation update. That was constructed on the Snapdragon XR1 hardware platform.
Google will continue to support the headset until September 15
Google in the same contrast has updated several pages of the Google Glass Enterprise Edition. This is to reflect that sales of the headset have been discontinued as of March 15. On the other side, Google will continue to support the headset until September 15, 2023, for existing Glass Enterprise Edition customers.
Though the company has affirmed that “no software updates from Google are planned.” Instead, “support” here means that customers will be able to receive replacement devices under the existing programs until that deadline.
After the deprecation date, all existing headsets will continue to work as normal, and third-party developers will still be able to update their applications. Which are usually responsible for any business-specific tasks. After putting a potential break Google says the “Meet on Glass” app that launched less than a year ago is only guaranteed to work until the September 15 deadline as a warning.
The discontinuation comes at a curious time for the Google Glass lineup, as the platform recently gained an early access program to test deeper integration with Google’s Pixel phones through a new companion app. That preview brought integration with common Google apps and services, including Google Tasks, Google Translate, and Google Camera.
This directly explains that Google gonna much more concentrated on promoting its work on Android-powered AR headsets consistently. Last May, at its annual I/O conference, the company even showed off an in-progress live transcription and translation feature on AR smart glasses. For instance, Google working on the types of smart ring controls seen on the Focals by North (a company that Google acquired).
