Can I cast the screen of my M-Series Smart Glasses?

Yes, the M-Series Smart Glasses support the Miracast streaming standard. To cast your screen, go to the Display section of the M-Series Smart Glasses Settings application and select "Cast screen". You will need to activate the “Enable wireless display” option which can be found in the context menu of this screen, which can be accessed with a long-press on the forward button closest to the display on the M-Series Smart Glasses. Once enabled, the M-Series Smart Glasses will scan for available Miracast devices and then allow you to cast your screen to a device you select.

Can I install applications on my M-Series device using USB?

Normally, applications are installed from our App Store as described here. However, if you have downloaded an .apk file to your computer, you can install it via a USB connection. There are two mechanisms for this.

Without Additional Software 

  1. For the M300XL: Disconnect the battery from the M300XL to expose the USB Micro-B port.
    For the M300: Attach either a USB Micro-B adapter or the a battery to the custom connector to expose the USB Micro-B port.
  2. Insert a USB-A to USB Micro-B cable between the device and a USB-3.1 high-power port on the computer. Standard USB ports on the computer do not supply sufficient power and cannot be used.
  3. On the M-Series device, open Settings > Storage & USB.
  4. Long-press the front button to show the menu.
  5. Select USB Mode.
  6. Change the mode to File transfers. The M300 should appear as a device on your computer.
  7. Use your Windows File Explorer or macOS Finder to copy the .apk file to the virtual SD Card of the device.
  8. On the M-Series device, open Settings > Storage & USB > explore.
  9. Locate the file you copied.
  10. Highlight the .apk file and click it to install.


Using Android Debug Bridge Software

If not already installed, obtain ADB software from developer.android.com. Follow the setup procedure so that adb is in your path. Simply issue the command ‘adb install <path to file>.apk’ in a command window. 

Can I use the Vuzix Smart Glasses Manager application with the M-Series Smart Glasses?

No, SG Manager only supports the M100 at this time.

There are a number of third-party applications which will allow for remote control of the M-Series Smart Glasses either via USB or WiFi. We have evaluated Vysor (USB and WiFi) and AirDroid (WiFi only). Both applications are developed by third parties and have some connectivity issues not unique to the M-Series Smart Glasses, but they do work.

The M-Series Smart Glasses also support input from Bluetooth peripheral devices, including mice and keyboards.

Can I use voice commands to control the M-Series Smart Glasses?

Yes, the M-Series Smart Glasses Speech Recognition engine includes a set of basic navigation and control commands by default. These commands are globally accessible on the M-Series Smart Glasses while the recognizer is enabled. 

To enable, go to Speech Recognition in the Settings application and toggle the “Enable Vuzix Speech Recognition” option. From this screen, you can also modify the sensitivity and timeout settings of the Speech Recognition engine. Sensitivity will adjust the amount of accuracy required by the recognizer when listening for a phrase, and timeout will adjust how long the recognizer will continue listening for commands after the keyword or the last voice command is issued. By default, the timeout is 15 seconds. Setting the timeout slider to the maximum value will set the timeout to an unlimited value, though it is important to keep in mind this will increase battery usage by the recognizer.

To issue voice commands, you must first speak the “Hello Vuzix” keyword to trigger the listener which will remain active for the timeout duration. Issuing additional commands will reset this timeout. To see a list of the current set of stock voice commands and their functions please reference the Knowledge Base article here.

Does the M-Series Smart Glasses support the Google Play Store?

The M-Series Smart Glasses are not a CTS (Compatibility Test Suite) compliant device and does not support the Play Store or other Google Mobile Services (GMS) not covered by the Android Open Source license.
