  • Google Glass Enterprise Edition

Despite officially shutting down the Glass website in 2015, Google didn't exactly pull the plug on the project, and now, Glass is back with a new mission. Workers from fields like manufacturing, logistics, field services and healthcare who usually have their hands full, now have a device that can provide them information straight to their eyes.

Now, the Google Glass team has returned to X, and the Google Glass Enterprise Edition is available to more enterprises through the company's network of expert partners. The device is also now made more comfortable and lightweight for every wearer for a long time as battery life is also improved. According to new reports, the feedback for Google Glass EE has been positive as the wearable provides assistive information at work and enhances productivity. For example, GE mechanics now use Glass running software from our partner Upskill which shows them instructions with videos, animations and images leading to efficiency improvements of 8-12%. The company's workers have been using Google Glass on the factory floor to help guide them through complicated assembly instructions.

This time around, Google Glass is going the enterprise way with Glass Enterprise Edition. Hit the link for more details.

Despite the success of AR and VR tech in the consumer market, Glass will be exclusively developed for the business sector, and, as far as we know, there are no plans yet to expand beyond that. Instead, Google Glass Enterprise Edition is being used by more than 50 businesses in the United States, including AGCO, DHL, Dignity Health, NSF International, Sutter Health, The Boeing Company and Volkswagen.

Writing in his bog, Glass project leader Jay Kothari said that GE Aviation, AGCO, DHL, Dignity Health, NSF International, Sutter Health, Boeing and Volkswagen have been using Glass over the past several years, and make up just a sampling of 50 companies using the wearable. Their collective efforts will help more customers and clients across businesses to become more efficient and fast workers.

So far, there is no word on Glass potentially returning to the consumer market.

The Google Glass EE has been upgraded significantly from its predecessor.
