Starwood Hotels teams up with Google Glass for new app
An easy and dynamic way to start booking hotel rooms
Last week, the American hotel company announced plans to release an app for Google Glass, allowing wearers of the futuristic headset to search its hotel and resort database of more than 1,150 locations worldwide and reserve a room just by using their voice.
Starwood is currently testing a beta version of the app, called SPG (Starwood Preferred Guest) for Google Glass, which it plans to release soon.
"The SPG on Glass app was designed to take advantage of everything Glass has to offer," Starwood states on its website. "Searches are done by simply speaking what you are looking for or by GPS location."
The app will also allow users to call the hotel, get turn-by-turn directions, as well being able to explore and share photos of the hotel and its surrounding area. Starwood Preferred Guests can even access their account and view any upcoming stay details and their up-to-date Starpoint balance.
The new announcement has come shortly after Google launched its latest program, dubbed Glass at Work, which is aimed at creating new Glass-powered innovations for global businesses.
