Music Control and Smoother Transit
Whether you’re just waking up, hustling at your desk, heading home, or kicking back, Focals are there to make your day better. This week, Focals get support for music control on Spotify as well as real-time transit departures and ETA messages.
Music Control with Spotify
On the go or in the flow, music control on Spotify is there to complement your day.
If you have Spotify Premium, you can now see what’s playing, skip songs, and adjust the volume from Focals - completely hands-free.
To get started,
- Log in to your Spotify account from the new Abilities tab in the Focals app.
- Start playing music from a Spotify connected device.
- Click to see the current artist and song as a Now Moment. Click again to see music controls or while your display is off, use Loop to pause, skip, and go to the previous song.
Select Abilities in the Focals App.
Tap the Spotify slider to log in.
Departures and ETAs
Avoid those nearly missed buses, subways, or trains with real-time departures - right on your glasses.
During commuting hours, Focals will suggest the quickest transit route you can take to get where you need to be. Make confusing transit apps a thing of the past and find everything you need to start your transit trip on your Now view. With route names, stop/station locations, and arrival times all in one place, Focals bring some much needed peace of mind to public transportation.
Running a bit behind? Send an ETA message from Focals and let others know when you’ll be home or at work.
Departure information you see on Focals uses your Home and Work addresses saved in the Focals app, so make sure these addresses are correct before you update and use the new transit features.
