MyGlass Google Glass app adds screencast remote control mode on Android

Google has updated the MyGlass companion Android app for Google Glass to include a "screencast" mode. The app will now show what is being displayed in the head-mounted display on a smartphone screen, according to Engadget. The screencast mode also acts as a remote control, allowing the user to perform the usual Glass swiping maneuvers through the phone, without needing to do it on the touch sensor on the side of the device.
