Meta’s Ray-Ban Glasses Now Support Apple Music

If you’re one of the people who bought the Meta Ray-Ban smart glasses you now have a new software update to enjoy.

That update brings with it support for Apple Music streaming for the first time while there is also the option to use the glasses’ voice controls for music playback and more.

You’ll first need to make sure that the glasses are running the latest update, here’s how you can do that. Make sure they are near to your phone and charged before the update can be installed.

  • Step 1: Launch the Meta View app on your phone and head to settings.
  • Step 2: Now select Glasses & privacy, and hit the Glasses update button.

The new version 4.0 software update also brings with it support for WhatsApp and Messenger, too. Apple Music users can use their glasses’ touch controls to play their personal station featuring songs recommended to them.

Meta has detailed how you can connect Apple Music to your smart glasses. Simply head into settings in the Meta View app, tap Apple Music and Connect Apple Music. That’s it.

As for the touch controls, there are plenty on offer.

  • Tap once to pause or play audio.
  • Double-tap to skip forward.
  • Triple-tap to skip back.
  • Swipe forward to turn the volume up.
  • Swipe back to turn the volume down.
  • Tap and hold to play a recommendation from Apple Music.
    • Note: Tap and hold must be assigned to Apple Music in Settings by going to Your glasses and tapping Gestures.

That’s not all Voice Control is also now supported.

Start by saying “Hey Meta…”

  • “Play Apple Music.”
  • “Pause.”
  • “Skip.”
  • “Volume up”, “Volume down.”
  • “Play… (name any song, album, artist, playlist or station).”

The Meta Ray-Ban glasses can be bought for $329 and there are different options available with different lens colors and frame finishes. There is also the option to add prescription lenses should you need to, while the built-in camera can also be used for capturing short videos and photos. While obviously some way short of something like a Meta Quest or Apple Vision Pro, the glasses do act as actual sunglasses and offer more features than traditional options.
