Before Google Glass went up for sale to everyone and anyone in the US for a 24-hour period, the company announced details on the impending Android 4.4 KitKat update for its wearable headset. Well, it’s not been too long since that one-day sale ended, and the KitKat update is already beginning to roll out and making its way to Glass users across the country.
As mentioned before, the KitKat update (XE16) brings battery and performance improvements, new features including photo bundles, photos in Hangouts and sorted voice commands, and removes video calls. That’s not all though, according to the official changelog Google has now posted – the update also brings Wi-Fi network sync, which will make your Glass automatically connect to the Wi-Fi network your Android device is connected to by syncing access point details through your Google account, option to share photos with Google+ communities, and Instant Mixes for those who aren’t subscribed to the company’s All-Access music service.
The XE16 update is preceded by a small update to XE12.1, which will prepare Glass for the actual KitKat update. Both should be available to Glass Explorers right away, and the full changelog for the update can be found at the source link.
