 Facebook Reality Labs director Andrew Bosworth said the company was examining the legal and privacy ramifications of adding facial recognition technology to its upcoming smart glasses.

Mark Zuckerberg revealed in September that Facebook was partnering with Luxottica Group on a pair of smart Ray-Bans. Beyond that, though, the company has been intentionally vague about what it will offer

'These are certainly connected glasses, they are certainly providing a lot of functionality, [but] we're being quite coy about which functionality precisely we are providing,' Bosworth said

'This will be a gradual rollout,' the company said in a blog post, 'but you can find and enable the wake word via our Experimental Features settings—and then say 'Hey Facebook, take a screenshot,' 'Hey Facebook, show me who's online,' 'Hey Facebook, open Supernatural' or any of our other voice commands to get started.'
