Google shows off Gmail, third-party apps for Google Glass [video]

Google Glass Gmail

We have no idea whether Google (GOOG) Glass will actually become a popular accessory, but at least we now know that it will have access to some of the same mobile services that have made Android smartphones so popular. Per 9to5Google, it seems that Google¬†made a presentation at South by Southwest this week showing how Google Glass users can interact with their Gmail accounts and with other third-party apps such as the New York Times, Evernote, Skitch and Path. The Gmail app is particularly nifty since it utilizes voice recognition technology that supports email dictation as well as audio messaging. This way, Glass users on the other end can choose to hear your messages if they’re having difficulty reading text on their displays. A video of Google’s Glass Gmail demonstration is posted below.
