North’s Focals smart glasses are becoming more aware of what’s going on around you, with a new conversation detection mode promising to minimize distractions while you’re engaged in real life. The new feature is part of North’s latest update for the digitally-upgraded glasses, rolling out from today.

Conversation detection checks if you’re listening or talking to people around you, and then automatically snoozes incoming notifications until you’ve finished. When the eyewear decides the conversation has ended, it shows a summary of any notifications that came in while it was going on.
