The NY Times Has Launched a Google Glass App

The New York TimesGoogle Glass app is now live, the first third-party app available on the platform. The app lets users read the news on their glasses while walking around town, scrolling through stories by tilting their head up and down. And users can, “tap to have article summaries read aloud,” boasts the app’s description.

The media giant first demoed the app back in March at SXSW. To get access to the app, you have to allow The Times access to your name, photo, gender, birthdate, country, language, timezone, your Google Glass timeline, the ability to view your location and receive notifications when your location changes. And they request permission to do all of this when you are not using the app.

It’s still difficult to get your hands on a pair of Google Glass, but you can sign up here to get on Google Glass’ mailing list.
