Glass may be getting closer to being a full-blown consumer product, according to a few changes to the product’s terms of sale. Although the search giant recently made its high-tech eyewear available to the public, it’s widely referred to as still in beta. About a week ago, Google revamped its sales terms for Glass, adding an updated “Prices and Taxes” section.
Should Google reduce its price on any Device within 30 days from the date you order it, you must contact Glass Support within 30 days of the price change to request a refund or credit for the difference between the price you were charged and the reduced price. Google may also provide promotional offers or prices related to the sale of Devices. If so, any terms applicable to such promotional offers or prices will control in the event of a conflict with these Terms.
This appears to be the first time that Google has openly made any kind of mention of a possible price change for Glass. While it only references a “what if” scenario, the company still appears to be protecting itself in the event of a price drop or promotion. In addition to an update to its pricing details, Google also removed portions of Glass’ sales terms that refer to it as a beta product. This doesn’t necessarily mean that Google considers Glass a finished product, however it does suggest that the platform is making moves towards being ready for a more casual audience.
