What is Meta and RayBan Smart Glass All About? 

The streamers will create direct links on the platform they want to interact with their audience. Furthermore, the streamers would be able to interact one-on-one by listening to the comments through the built-in headphones in the smart glasses. Simply put, the comments will be turned to audio but how will Meta choose which comment to relay to the user, the answer to this still needs to be clarified.

Rumors also say that the respective managers will have access to the comments, and they can decide on which comment to relay. 

The users can also expect some enhancement in the product, like better battery life and camera quality, which will ultimately improve the streaming standard. Another feature offered is ambient noise monitoring to adjust playback volume, this feature will make the sound resonance better and clear.
