So focal smart glasses company North, has just made an announcement that it gonna be updating it smart glasses to add some new features, like adding a support for spotify controls.
With the new feature Users will be able to skip songs, see a track’s title/artist, and adjust the volume of their connected listening device from the glasses’ accompanying control ring, called the Loop.
The company also provide you with the ability to call an uber and provide walking directions, they don’t do the same for driving directions because they say the glasses shuts off when it seems like the wearer is driving.
But there are still some drawbacks to the glasses like the fact that they don’t support transit directions and also don’t allow for music playback which is very important for those who know what i mean.
The company says some features might not be available for non-paying Spotify users, But overall, these features will build out the Focals experience, which is much needed considering that the company laid off 150 employees in February, seemingly in its manufacturing department.
