Navigating the Google Glass Community

Part of Google Glass For Dummies Cheat Sheet

The first time you visit the Google Glass Community website, the sheer amount of information you can access can make it hard to decide where to start. The community contains a large number of forums where you can read messages from other users, as well as post a message so people can respond. Forums are divided into topics, and forum names appear in a list on the website’s home page so you can find topics easily. If you want to leave a suggestion for the Glass development team, for example, go to the Wishlist for Glass forum.

Here are some good places to find information:

  • I’m new to Glass. Where do I go? Visit the Glass Newbies forum to see the questions other new users are asking, get helpful tips, and ask basic questions.

  • Can I get help with a hardware or software feature problem? You can visit the Troubleshooting forum to view a list of subforums with topics that may match the topic area you’re having trouble with. Visit the Connectivity subforum if you’re having problems with your Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth connection, for example.

  • I’m developing an app for Glass. Can I chat with other developers? Absolutely. Just visit the Glassware Developers forum to see what other developers are working on. If you want to collaborate with other developers on an app project, post a message to the Glassware Match forum.

  • What if I want to talk about a Glass topic? Visit the Discussions forum and check to see whether any discussions on that topic have already started. If so, you can respond to the initial message and see where that response takes you. If not, post a new message in the forum and wait for responses to which you can reply.
