Google Glass XE20.1 Update Brings Improved Contacts, Head Nudge, New Cards and Commands

Google Glass XE20.1

Google Glass XE20.1Ever since Google unveiled Android Wear earlier this year, the first Android Wear-powered smartwatches have been practically all that people are talking about when it comes to wearables. Android Wear, however, is obviously not Google’s first stab at the wearables market. Launched last year in limited release form, Google Glass has taken somewhat of a backseat in the public’s eye. Luckily, this doesn’t mean that Google’s slowing down in bringing innovative and new features to the platform.

Earlier today, Google announced the release of the Google Glass XE20.1 update. Building atop the previous XE19.1 release, today’s update brings many new features. Most notably, . . . READ ON »

Google Nexus 5 Updated to 4.4.4_R2 in NZ, AUS, India; Glass Gets XE19.1

Google Glass XE 19.1 Update

Earlier today, Google issued updates to two current generation reference devices, the Google Nexus 5 and Google Glass. The former received an incredibly minor update to Android 4.4.4_r2 (KTU84Q), while the latter was shown to a rather significant update XE19.1 (up from last month’s rather significant XE 18.3 update).

First up, we have the Nexus 5 update. Today’s update takes users from Android 4.4.4 (KTU84P) to Android 4.4.4_r2 (KTU84Q). However, this build isn’t making its way out to all devices. Rather, this build is only heading out to consumer devices in three markets: New Zealanders on 2Degrees, Aussies on Telsta, and those living in India. Because of this and the OTA’. . . READ ON »

[OTA, Factory Images] Google Glass XE18.1 to Bring Glass to Smartphone Photo Sharing, New Cards

glass

Just one week ago, Google Glass was given a substantial update to firmware XE17.3. For those who don’t remember, this update brought an experimental “Notification Glance” feature, which made it significantly more convenient to access incoming notifications when the screen is off. Now, more goodies have arrived for Google Glass explorers, thanks to the upcoming XE18.1 firmware.

Earlier today, the Google Glass team announced that an upcoming Google Glass update (XE18.1) would bring improved photo sharing capabilities and a few new cards. For starters, this new update is set to bring automatic photo sharing from Glass to your Android device through an upcoming update t. . . READ ON »

Unreleased Google Glass XE17.3 Factory Image, OTA, and Pre-Rooted Boot Image Now Available

product_10

Two weeks ago today, Google Glass users were greeted with a bugfix update to XE17.2 that brought much better low power handling when extremely low on juice. This followed up on the XE17.1 update, which brought much better integration with Google Maps on Android, so long as the recently updated MyGlass 3.0.0 app was used. Now, another Glass update has been discovered in our forums.

Today’s update comes in at firmware version XE17.3. And despite the lack of release notes or a formal announcement, it has been captured and shared with the community right here in our Google Glass forums. Naturally, it’s hard to identify the changes without a formal changelog or release notes, bu. . . READ ON »

We recently talked about the Google Glass XE17.1 update. For those in need of a little refresher, XE17.1 brought quite a few goodies such as the ability to share places from Google Maps on Android directly with Google Glass using the MyGlass 3.0.0 app.

Now just five days later, Glass has been updated yet again—this time, to XE17.2. Google first announced XE17.2 earlier today, citing that this release would bring various bug fixes. This includes better low power handling when extremely low on juice. In instances like this, rather than simply not turning on, Glass will display the icon in the screenshot to your right.

Naturally, this update will start rolling out to Glass Explorer Edition devi. . . READ ON »

Google Glass XE17.1 OTA Captured, Updated Factory Image and Rooted Boot Image Now Available

medium

Two days ago and coinciding with Google Glass‘s public release, Google shed some light on the upcoming XE17.1 firmware. This update follows up on last week’s XE17 bugfix release, while bringing a few new features to make upgrading worth your while.

For those in need of a quick refresher, XE17.1 brings back the ability to share places from Google Maps on Android directly with Google Glass. This place sharing functionality requires Android MyGlass 3.0.0, which was made available earlier this morning.

Naturally given the newly restored places sharing, many Glass Explorers found themselves lusting after the XE17.1 updates. However, XE17.1 hasn’t made its way to consume. . . READ ON »

Google Opens Glass Purchases to All in the US, Unveils XE17.1 Firmware

medium

You may recall that a few weeks back, Google erroneously made Google Glass purchases open to the public for a few hours. This particular order page wasn’t exactly intended to be opened to the general public at the time. Rather, it “was created to accommodate potential Explorers who were still in the pipeline”
from the previous single day sale held a week and a half earlier.

But now, potential explorers living in the US who were on the fence before can now get their orders in at their leisure. This news comes straight from the official Google Glass G+ page, where the team states, “starting today anyone in the US can buy the Glass Explorer Edition, as long as we have it on hand.R. . .
