Believe it or not, Google I/O is still in full swing with one more day until the developer conference officially comes to a close. Just because yesterday’s Google I/O keynote revealed some of the “bigger” changes spewing forth from Google, doesn’t mean there aren’t more surprises coming out of I/O. In fact, it was during the Glass developer session today that we learned Google Glass will be receiving updates faster than any other Android device. How quickly? How does every month sound?
The news was revealed in a “fireside chat” with the Glass development team and it was only a few weeks back the device received a software update to XE5, adding enhanced Google+ interactions, easier search function, the ability to accept incoming Hangout requests, amongst a slew of other features. Now it looks like we can expect another update in the next few weeks, all the way up until Google Glass is finally ready for a general public release.
While Glass may be limited in its current state, it will continue to grow at a very quick pace, adding new features, polish, and squashing bugs until it it’s finally ready for prime time. This means that by the time Glass gets in all of your hands, it will have matured into the virtual reality headset we always believed it could be.
Google also mentioned that all 2,000 Google Glass Explorer Editions have been received by those that signed up for early access to the device at last year’s Google IO. With Glass in more developer’s hands than ever, it’s going to be exciting to see what they can come up with.
