Along with the launch of Meta's new Meta AI assistant and Llama 3 model, the company announced a new software update for its Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses (review). The firmware added video calling capabilities and new generative AI features which were first previewed last year. The update will initially be available in the USA and Canada before rolling out to other markets.

Multimodal AI capabilities on Meta smart spectacles

The Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses were originally launched with voice-activated controls. However, Meta has upgraded these functions with the latest update by incorporating multimodal AI features which will utilize the 12 MP camera in addition to the microphone to process commands and provide real-time information to users.

With Meta AI, users can perform queries such as asking the assistant to translate visible text, and they will be able to hear the translation through the spectacles' speakers. Alternatively, they can make suggestions for recipes or let the AI scan what dish can be whipped up from the available ingredients.

Video calls and Apple Music on Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses

Apart from the multimodal AI features, Meta is also adding video call support that will support both Messenger and WhatsApp services. Users can ask Meta AI to start a video call and share their current view.

At the same time, there is also added streaming support for Apple Music with the Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses which enables hands-free voice control audio playback.

These include the new classic Skyler frames with cat eye design and Headliner frames with lower bridge alignment. Additionally, the Ray-Ban Meta glasses are now available in limited edition Scuderia Ferrari finishes.

The software update is already rolling out in the USA and Canada. Meta didn't confirm when this will arrive on Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses in other countries.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
