Remember Google Glass? The smart glasses, which was supposed to be the "next big thing" by Google, but soon disappeared from the spotlight! Surprise, Google Glass is still around and very much alive.
Yes, Google decided to bring a minor update to Google Glass after three years of dead silence.
The update was rolled out yesterday to limited users. As mentioned above, the update is not significant, which includes an update to “MyGlass”- Google Glass' Android companion app, some bug fixes, performance improvements and Bluetooth support. With the new firmware version, "XE23", users can now connect mouse, keyboard and other Bluetooth-enabled objects to their Glass device.
When launched in 2014, the headset was sold online as part of an "open beta" to test the device as a concept. However, due to lack of customer attention, the Explorer Program and Glass website were closed in 2015.
The previous XE22 update arrived in October 2014, adding support for displaying alternate routes in navigation mode, and the ability to view notifications from your Android phone on the Glass headset.
Though it's not clear why Google decided to release an update to Glass now, people who are still using the product can enjoy the latest update.
