The New York Times has released to the public the Google Glass app that it demoed at this year’s South by Southwest conference.

On a site sent to subscribers Thursday, theTimes offered a brief introduction to the Glass app’s features and a button to help Glass owners install the app. The app is the first installable third-party app that’s been made available to Glass owners.

Features include breaking-news alerts and hourly news updates, and you can navigate stories and photos by tilting your head up. You can also tap to have the app read article summaries to you.

Neither Google nor The New York Times immediately responded to requests for comment. CNET will update the story when we hear back from them.
