Design for Glass

Glass is fundamentally different from existing mobile platforms in both design and use. Build your Glassware with this in mind, and design it specifically for Glass. Ensure the user experience is appropriate for Glass by testing on an actual device.

Don’t get in the way

Glass users expect the technology to be there when they want it and out of the way when they don’t. Do not annoy users with notifications that are too frequent or unexpected. Provide appropriate controls for your users, so they can interact with your Glassware when desired and ignore it when they don’t.

Keep it timely

Glass is a platform that is most effective when in-the-moment and up-to-date. Always deliver fresh and relevant content to users. You also have access to a real-time notification system that can inform your Glassware about certain events, such as when users delete or reply to timeline cards. If your Glassware responds to these notifications, do so in a timely and expected manner.

Avoid the unexpected

Surprising the user with unexpected functionality is bad on any platform, but especially on Glass, because it is so close to a user’s daily experience. Always be honest about the intention of your Glassware and get explicit permission before you do anything on the user’s behalf.
