Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses get new styles and features

New styles are coming to the Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses and an AI feature rolls out to all users, but only in North America.


Meta announced new styles for the Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses. These include the new Skyler frames, which are designed for smaller faces and are available now for pre-order in two colors and lenses.

The Headliner frames are now available with a low bridge option if the headset tends to slide down the nose, sit too low on the face or press on the cheeks. More options and styles are planned for this summer.

The new styles are available in 15 countries, including the United States, Canada, Australia and across Europe.

Meta also announced the first limited edition of Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses: the Ferrari inspired Scuderia Limited Edition, available from April 24th.

There are also new features. The smart glasses now allow you to share your view when making video calls with Whatsapp and Messenger. The update is now being rolled out, and it may take some time before it reaches all users. The smart glasses have also got Apple Music support a few days ago.


There is also progress in terms of AI capabilities. In the U.S. and Canada, the smart glasses are equipped with Meta AI capabilities, and since December 2023, Meta has been testing a multimodal AI feature that teaches the smart glasses to see. For example, users can have a menu translated or have the glasses describe what they are looking at. Meta says Meta AI with Vision is now rolling out to all users in North America, but is still in beta.


Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses are "flying off the shelves"

Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses were launched in October 2023 and are the second generation of smart glasses. The first generation was called Ray-Ban Stories.

The second generation seems to be a bigger success than the Ray-Ban Stories. Meta writes that the smart glasses are "flying off the shelves" and that they are selling faster than Ray-Ban and Meta can produce them. In February, Mark Zuckerberg said that demand was outstripping supply and that production had been ramped up.
