Google Glass updated to XE19.1, brings improved connectivity and refreshed voice menu

Following last month’s huge XE18.3 update which gave Google Glass a handy view finder for framing photos, the wearable headset is now receiving a relatively small update to XE19.1. Unfortunately, it doesn’t add Android Wear notifications (although we’re told that’s still coming later down the road).

This latest update rolling out this week doesn’t really add any new features or abilities, as Google mentions in their release notes, it simply does a “better job of handling occasional network issues.” Having more reliable connectivity is always a plus, and we’re sure this will make some Glass Explorers’ day.

Google has also slightly tweaked the voice actions menu, giving it a “sleeker, cleaner look.” While we’re still trying to spot the differences, plug in your Glass headset to its charger and wait for the update to hit your device in the coming days.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.
