Jacquard by Google is an ambient computing platform that can bring smart features to everyday objects. Levi’s today announced the Levi’s Trucker and Sherpa Jackets powered by Jacquard platform. These new smart jackets will be available in both men’s and women’s sizes. They will be available in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, U.K. and U.S. The new Jacquard Tag has a battery life of up to two weeks and the re-designed Jacquard app allows you to personalize your Jacquard-enabled jacket to do what you would like it to do. You can have music control, navigation, Always Together, various alerts, such as a text message or rideshare alerts, camera ability and new Google Assistant features such as “My Day” to get current updates on traffic, local weather, news and more.
And with “Ask Assistant,” you can create your own Jacquard ability. So whether you want to control your smart home, get updates on the latest basketball score or just check what your commute looks like before you head out—you can program Jacquard to do all this (and much more!) with a simple gesture.
