Soon following the announcement, a closed beta was released which required the users to sign up to use the feature. However, now, Meet on Glass is available for any Google Workspace customer/account.

The Bluetooth 5.0 allows for wireless headphones and the device can be connected via the USB-C port, which changes the 800mAh battery. the Google Meet has been fully integrated with the Google Workspace suite.
Any Google Workspace customer around the world can now give their employees, suppliers, and partners greater sight with Glass—using the simple and intuitive Google Meet environment they’re already used to.
The device was originally announced in May of 2019 for $999, and its specifications include Qualcomm’s Snapdragon XR1 SoC with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. For connectivity, we have 802.11a/g/b/n/ac Wi-Fi, and also it has IP53 protection for water spray resistance. The OS of the glasses is Android 8.1 which allows a familiar operating UI.

Google’s Glass is not much famous as an augmented reality device, the reason being that it only offers a floating 640 x 360 display in the top-right corner of your vision. however, it is now finally gaining recognition as the extension of Google Meet.
