Google announced the launch of a new notification sync feature for Google Glass, enabling users to see Android app notifications on the device. The feature mirrors a similar one on Android Wear, the platform used by Android smart watches.

Google sets the scene in a Google+ update: "Max sent you a WhatsApp message, marycam81 tagged you in a photo, your Lyft has arrived… these are just some of the reasons for pulling out your phone. You want to know about the things that matter to you, but you don't want to be distracted by your phone when you could be enjoying the moment."

The feature will be available in a new Glass update rolling out this week. It requires the latest version of MyGlass (v3.3.0).

In other Google Glass news, it would appear that you can actually develop an addiction by using the device. Don't be that weird person with the Glass addiction. Just don't.
