Key notes

  • Meta, owner of WhatsApp, is reportedly adding WhatsApp video call capability to Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses.
  • Beta testers found strings hinting at this feature, including options like switching cameras.
  • These smart glasses, starting at $329, also feature Bing integration and AI functionalities.

Meta, the owner of WhatsApp, is apparently working on yet another Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses feature. This time, the tech giant will reportedly bring a feature that lets you do WhatsApp video calls from the smart glasses. 

Strings that hint at this feature were spotted by beta testers of the popular messaging application, as shared by @AssembleDebug on X (fka Twitter). 

The strings include, “Share your view even when the app isn’t open or your phone is locked,” “Double-press the glasses capture button to switch cameras,” “Enable nearby devices to connect to smart glasses,” “Start Streaming,” and more.

Take a look at the discovery:

As the strings suggest, you may be able to switch cameras just like how you do when video calling on WhatsApp on mobile. 

The Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses arrived not too long ago, and folks praise it for its clear-crystal camera. Since it already has Bing integration in it, you can also simply say “Hey Bing”, and this voice command will summon the Bing AI Chat search (now rebranded to Copilot).

At least $329 will get you a pair of Wayfarer edition smart glasses that are both stylish and loaded with AI functionality.
