Meta and Ray Ban teamed up in 2021 to release their first smart glasses, dubbed Stories. Despite the quirky name, both companies have moved forward. Now, Meta has announced the Ray Ban Meta Smart Glasses, the second generation. Meta claims they built these glasses from scratch, improving all the essential features from the first version and adding new capabilities never before seen in smart glasses. Let’s check out these features.
Meta Introduces Ray Ban Smart Glasses for Live Streaming
Ray Ban’s Meta Smart Glasses now lets you livestream directly to Instagram and Facebook—a first for smart eyewear. Perfect for content creators and social media buffs!
These smart glasses have a 12MP ultra-wide camera that records cool 1080p videos of up to 60 seconds. They’re polite too, with a little white light letting people know when they’re being filmed.
These smart glasses can hold around 500 photos and 100 short videos in their 32GB storage. Use the Meta View app to share your moments with other apps.
These glasses run on the Snapdragon AR1 Gen 1 processor and can handle light water splashes—they’re IPX4 water-resistant.
The new Ray Ban Meta Smart Glasses by Meta are 50% louder than the old ones. They have clearer audio, deeper bass, and cool directional sound to make listening more immersive and private.
The Ray Ban Meta Smart Glasses rock the classic Wayfarer look with fresh colours and a clear option. Pick your vibe from over 150 variations, including different lens choices like sun, polarized, clear, transitions, and prescription.
The case for the headset is now lighter, 32% to be exact, and it can charge the headset eight times. That’s a total of 36 hours of battery life. To recharge the case, just use a USB-C.
The Ray Ban Meta Smart Glasses are up for pre-order now on Meta.com, Ray-Ban.com, and select retailers. Starting October 17, they’ll be available for purchase in countries like the US, Canada, Australia, and throughout Europe.
