Facebook unveiled its long-awaited smart glasses in partnership with Ray-Ban, entering a nascent wearables market with a focus on capturing photos rather than augmented reality.

The social media giant is the latest company to try to make video glasses go mainstream. The company unveiled its first pair of smart glasses that allows wearers to capture photos and short videos from their point of view and to easily post them on Facebook, Instagram, or WhatsApp. Users can also listen to music and podcasts, as well as take calls.

According to Facebook´s founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook wanted to build best-in-class glasses, and therefore they used the popular Ray-Ban frames that people already loved. Zuckerberg added that users wouldn´t have to choose between interacting with the device or the world around them anymore.

Google launched its Google glass in 2013; however, they abandoned it in 2015. That´s why Facebook teamed up with Ray-Ban to make its model look more fashionable and address privacy measures by including an LED light that appears when the glasses are recording.

The $299 Facebook glasses let users take photos and video, listen to music and answer phone calls. While they lack AR, the technology that overlays digital content on the physical world, Facebook says it eventually plans to embed that functionality.
