New Reality: Google Glass Enterprise Edition Is Gone


Google has canned sales of its Glass Enterprise Edition smart glasses and plans to end support later this year as multiple vendors contend with an uncertain economy by cutting from extended reality divisions. A note on the Glass website thanked viewers “for over a decade of innovation and partnership” for the augmented reality (AR) device. “We will continue supporting Glass Enterprise Edition until September 15, 2023.” CRN has reached out to Mountain View, Calif.-based Google for comment. I don’t think we have figured out exactly what the industry needs or what folks are comfortable with yet.” The cuts come after multiple IT vendors, including Google, Microsoft and Salesforce, have cited moderated demand for digital tools since the height of the pandemic. For Google parent Alphabet, the business slowdown led to the announced layoff of about 12,000 employees.
