Google Glass received first firmware update in nearly three years

Google Glass, Google’s super expensive face computer last received a software update back in September 2014. But today, out of nowhere, almost three years later, Google has rolled out a new firmware (XE23) update for the device, with a list of ‘bug fixes and performance improvements’, and strangely enough, Bluetooth support.

 

There’s also been an update to the ‘MyGlass’ app, Google Glass’ Android companion app. After three years of neglect, the app has now been updated to Android 5.1 compatibility, and it even has Notification Listener Service. This allows the app to sync notifications from the phone to the device, just like Android Wear. It has also been updated to prompt the user to disable the battery-saving Doze mode for the app so it can work when the phone is asleep.
