A Google representative has said Google intends to allow Glass to handle these features independent of the device the user has paired it to, TechCrunch reports.

Glass can work with any iPhone over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, but lacks access to features such as map navigation and text messages which would require access to APIs that Apple has restrictions on.

For Google Glass users to operate navigation and text messaging, the device has to paired with an Android phone with the Glass companion app installed. Users of Glass are currently limited to those involved in the Glass Explorers program - around 2,000 developers.

"It's worth nothing that one of the myths surrounding Glass is that it is independently connected to the Internet," TechCrunch reports. Glass needs to be connected to your phone's personal hotspot feature by pairing the two together.

The news shared with TechCrunch means that it can be expected that Glass will become fully functional on whichever device you use to connect it to the internet.

Google Glass tech specs were leaked last month, revealing features such as 16GB of total storage, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity and a 5MP camera shooting in 720p video.
