Just a week after its XE16.2 update, which itself came a week after XE16.1, Google is pushing out XE17 for immediate availability to Google Glass owners. The update currently has one and only one purpose: to fix a critical bug.
Google Glass users may soon be able to send money by saying "Ok Glass, Send Money." A Wallet app isn't yet available for Google Glass, however sources close to TechCrunch have said the app is currently being tested and expected to come available shortly.
Google Glass users have another update coming this week, and it seems this is one they will want to grab right away. This time around the update is dealing with images and video as well as answering incoming phone calls. In this case of phone calls -- it seems Glass is about to get a bit smarter.
Field Trip first arrived for Google Glass users back in August 2013, however more recently an update has added some new functionality. Simply put, Glass users are now able to activate Field Trip by saying "Ok Glass, Explore Nearby." From that point there is also some options for personalization.
As if all the current news surrounding Google Glass security issues weren't enough, another tale has popped up. A woman (who you are familiar with if you follow Glass — read on) was asked to take Glass off during a flight on United Airlines. According to her, someone on the staff ask that she remove the headwear due to “security concerns”.
A few news articles are touting that Google Glass is available to all today, effectively ending the Explorer beta program and opening up the world of Glass to anyone. Clicking a specific link gave access to the Glass order page from their April 15 sale, but the Glass home page yields a different experience. We’ve reached out to Google, and have the official story.
Google Glass has gotten a fair bit of attention lately, both on the good and bad sides. One topic that seems to be falling on the latter side lately is public opinion. Many have a strong opinion about Glass, and while we generally look to the Explorers for a positive backing -- it seems one of the most vocal may be having some doubt.
Kit Kat, the XE16 update, rolled out for Google Glass users back on April 15th. There was lots of promise and hope coming with the update. Google touted goodies such as increased battery life, however it also looks like plenty of users had issues as a result of updating. We are on the lookout for a changelog, but we did want to mention a new update is currently in the process of rolling out.
Google Glass users received a big update last week. We are talking about the XE16 update, which brought Kit Kat. This one added quite a few goodies including voice command sorting, card bundling and more. And it looks like the update also paved the way for future additions.
Interested in trying Glass on, but not willing to drop $1,500 for the opportunity? Unless you know someone with the nascent headwear, you won’t have much luck. If you previously let Google know you were interested in Glass, check your email — they may be reaching out.
