Key Takeaways

  • An update to Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses now lets you share directly to Instagram Stories.
  • It also adds Amazon Music streaming and Calm meditations.
  • New styles of the eyewear are now available.

The Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses have received an update that makes it easy to share to Instagram without relying on your smartphone.

You can now use the eyewear to share directly to a Story simply by asking the voice assistant to either “post a photo to Instagram” (if you want to take a new picture) or “share my last photo to Instagram.” This won’t help if you want to make a permanent post, but it could be ideal if you want to add to your Stories while you’re in the heat of the moment.

Beyond Instagram, the smart glasses update adds support for Amazon Music streaming. If you need to destress, Calm is also available for meditation, mindfulness exercises, and other self-care material.

Now may also be a good time to buy the Ray-Ban Meta glasses. Three new styles promised last month are now available, including two colors of the Skyler frames (aimed at wearers with small faces) and a new low-bridge Headliner for people with fit issues.

The upgrades come just weeks after the hardware got support for Meta AI and video calls. While direct Instagram sharing and the other new features likely won’t persuade you to buy the smart glasses by themselves, it’s clear the wearable is considerably more useful than it was on launch.

While Google has hinted at getting back into smart eyepieces with its Project Astra teaser, Meta appears to have a comfortable position for now.
