Just like with your smartphone, sending a text message or email is relatively easy. But without any input controls, Glass wearers will have to dictate their messages regardless of where they are.

Either from the "OK Glass" command or by scrolling through your contacts, Glass will send your message by the best channel — either email or text message — depending on the available contact details
