If you want to hangout with someone via your Glass, there are a few steps that must be taken first…
1. They must be in a G+ circle of yours (obviously, for a G+ hangout).
2. You’ll need to go to the MyGlass website and turn them “On” under Sharing Contacts.
3. You must initiate the hangout with them by saying “Ok Glass”… “hang out with”… and then a list of your possible options will appear. Say the same of the person or circle you want to contact. If the person you want is not on the list, perhaps you didn’t do #2.
I had this problem yesterday because I thought I could just add the person as a contact on the MyGlass app on my Android, but that didn’t add them to the hangout list. I thought it wasn’t syncing. More accurately, it wasn’t sinking in that I was going about things the wrong way.
4. As of now, you cannot enter an existing hangout from Glass. Rather, you must initiate the hangout on Glass and invite people from there. Makes things a little more challenging, but if you plan ahead with well-organized circles, it may end up second-nature in no time.
Here’s a new video I captured today from my computer screen showing the feed from Glass in a G+ Hangout. I thought the quality issues I saw yesterday might have been due to poor light, but today’s version doesn’t look much different. Considering it’s a live broadcast from a tiny wearable camera, I’d say it’s quite impressive all the same!
Just as before, here’s a comparison video recorded on Glass, uploaded to my Computer and then up to YouTube with significantly higher quality.
