The Hearst Corporation Introduces Google Glass Magazine Glassware at Google I/O
May 16 13
The Hearst Corporation introduced the ELLE Glassware created exclusively for Google Glass at Google I/O 2013. Hearst is the first magazine media company to develop and launch Glassware, with ELLE as the first Hearst brand included in the device's initial gallery of services. The Glassware is now available to early users as part of the device's Explorer launch. The teams from Hearst Corporation, ELLE and Google worked together on this launch of the world's top fashion magazine as Glassware. The partnership is a result of Hearst's ongoing research and development efforts, many of which are focused on building new mobile experiences. The launch of the ELLE Glassware is seen as an example of how Hearst plans to deliver content across its diverse properties, whether fresh, lifestyle perspectives from magazine brands, breaking news from Hearst newspapers and TV stations or essential business information from Hearst Business Media's financial, healthcare and automotive companies, in new ways on both emerging and existing mobile devices. The ELLE Glassware curates the best content from ELLE's most widely read and shared sections online, including ELLEDispatch, a fashion and culture news blog that provides read-aloud excerpts and bundled photos and video; daily fashion inspiration from Street Chic; magazine-like photo Lookbooks that Glass users can swipe through; and horoscopes, which allow the user to change astrological signs within the Glassware. While using the Glassware, users can share articles and photos with contacts and create reading lists and shopping wish lists that can be revisited later from a mobile or desktop device. The ELLE Glassware offers a unique set of content not seen with other Google Glass content partners. It aims to attract fashion-forward on the go professionals looking for timely fashion features and cultural segments.
