Meta’s Ray-Ban Smart Glasses Get Major Update with Hands-Free Social Media Integration

Meta updates Ray-Ban smart glasses with hands-free Instagram sharing, Amazon Music, and Calm integration. New styles and AI features enhance user convenience and functionality. Here's everything you need to know.

Meta has unveiled a significant update to its Ray-Ban smart glasses, enhancing their hands-free functionality. Announced on Wednesday, the update allows users to share images directly to their Instagram Story without needing their phones. Users can now simply command, “Hey Meta, share my last photo to Instagram,” or capture and post a new image by saying, “Hey Meta, post a photo to Instagram.”

This new feature draws parallels to the Snap Spectacles, introduced in 2016, which enabled users to capture and share moments directly to their Snapchat Stories. Meta’s iteration brings similar convenience to Instagram, integrating seamlessly into the social media habits of its users.

Beyond social media, the Ray-Ban smart glasses now boast hands-free integrations with Amazon Music and the meditation app Calm. Users can stream music by saying, “Hey Meta, play Amazon Music,” keeping their phones in their pockets. Audio playback can be managed via touch or voice controls, offering a streamlined listening experience. For mindfulness routines, users can access Calm’s content by saying, “Hey Meta, play the Daily Calm,” making self-care practices more accessible on the go.

In addition to these features, Meta is expanding its range of styles across 15 countries, including the U.S., Canada, Australia, and parts of Europe. New styles include Skyler in Shiny Chalky Gray with Gradient Cinnamon Pink Lenses, Skyler in Shiny Black with Transitions Cerulean Blue Lenses, and Headliner Low Bridge Fit in Shiny Black with Polar G15 Lenses. These styles are available on both Meta’s and Ray-Ban’s websites.

This update follows a recent AI enhancement for the smart glasses. Last month, Meta introduced multimodal AI capabilities, allowing users to query the glasses about their surroundings. For example, the glasses can translate a French menu using the built-in camera and Meta AI, positioning the glasses as a personal AI assistant, akin to Humane’s AI pin. Meta’s latest updates to the Ray-Ban smart glasses reflect a push towards making wearable technology an integral part of everyday life, enhancing both convenience and functionality.
