Remote Control for Screencast Now Available on MyGlass Android App

As you probably know, MyGlass is Google Glass’ companion app for smartphones and tablets. It allows you to configure and manage your device. And fortunately for all Glass Explorers, it’s now been updated to version 1.7.0, which brings support for remote control for screencasts.

Screencasts are streams from Google Glass to the smartphone or tablet that’s connected to it. But now you can also control Google Glass from the device that’s connected to it, if you update to the new version of MyGlass app. You can touch, swipe or tap your device in order to control Google Glass.

We didn’t discover any improvements and the Google Play page only reports about this and bugfixes. We’ll take a look by ourselves at the app and let you know if you see any other new features, though I believe they would’ve reported it, if it was the case.

We’ve also discovered a little easter egg on the page. Here’s the app description:

If you don’t have Glass, then downloading this will be a waste of time. Sorry about that. But if you swipe the screenshots to the right you’ll see there’s a picture of a puppy in pajamas. So not a total waste of time after all.

And yes, there’s a puppy hidden in-between the app’s screenshots. Nice sense of humor, Google, and a nice way to calm down those who didn’t manage to get their hands on the device yet.

Head over to and update the app manually if it didn’t auto-update by itself already. Don’t forget to take a look at that puppy in pajamas too.
