Ray-Ban and Meta Platforms, Inc. are bringing their smart glasses, Ray-Ban Stories, to more people around the world as they launch the product in four new countries. In the coming weeks, they will also introduce additional color and lens variations and new software features.

Ray-Ban Stories let you capture, share and listen through your most authentic moments, and will soon be available to purchase in 10 countries. The smart glasses have been launched in select in-store and online retailers in Spain, Austria and Belgium, followed by France on April 14.

Meta and EssilorLuxottica, Ray-Ban’s parent company, worked together to integrate smart technology including dual cameras to capture photos and videos; open-ear speakers for audio, and three built-in microphones to deliver rich voice and sound quality for calls and videos - all without compromising style, comfort, and aesthetic. The Ray-Ban Stories portfolio features 28 style, color and lens variations, with the newest options shipping in the coming weeks. Ray-Ban Stories are available in Wayfarer, the most recognizable frame and an icon since the 1950’s, along with the retro Round and the legendary Meteor styles, giving people the option to choose the glasses that are right for them. Lens choices include prescription, clear, G15, a new variety of polarized, gradient, and Transitions® Light Intelligent Lenses™ that seamlessly adapt to any light conditions.

 

In addition to an iconic design built with innovative technology, Ray-Ban Stories work with a companion app, Facebook View (iOS and Android), now available in French, Spanish, German and Dutch. Facebook View offers a seamless way to import, edit, and share content captured on Ray-Ban Stories to any social app on your phone.
