Google Glass Update Improves Backups and Call Handling

google glass-2

In case you jumped on Google’s April 15th Glass push, you may be itching for some software updates for your luxury eyewear. Google has answered your call, of course, and will be dropping those enhancements to the device over the course of the week, including photo and video backup and smarter phone answering. 

The first change the team behind Glass has made, is adding photo and video backup. In the past, Glass had only been able to run backups when plugged in to a power source and connected to a WiFi network, but you can now force a backup over any sort of data connection by simply tapping the Auto Backup card. You will be able to use this same card to clear your synced photos and videos from your timeline, as well.

Glass is also now smarter when it comes to answering the phone. If you answer or place a call on your phone, the audio is routed through that device. If you do the same through Glass, audio runs through the wearable. And if you are not wearing Glass (a common practice for some of us at DL), Glass will smartly recognize that, and reroute audio accordingly.

Google has not provided an exact date for the updates, but we are told to expect to see them roll out later in the week. Anyone excited?

    I have a feeling google was way over their head with glass and this thing is DOA…what does it really do that values wearing this ridiculous thing on your head?…give me a moto360 all day if im wearing a “wearable”…only good thing i see from wearables is being out in a loud place and getting a notification on ur wrist so you know or in places u cant use your phone…just simple as that…also ive said this many times if glass doesnt have augmented reality and an always on display its absolutly useless as a product

      Someone has to start somewhere with a HUD type wearable tech. And Google has the resources to have Glass completely fail, take what they learned and roll it into another project. Wouldn’t be the first product they put out with no intention of it being a commercial success, just look at the Pixel.

    STFU you litte retarded curry sipping ba$tard. No one gives a flying fak about your 14 year old opinions. Go eat some curry and stink up an entire room with your mustache having sister and mom.

      you mad bro?

    The way for this to be successful, it to release it soon at a much cheaper price. Having it in a testing beta for at least 2 years is too long in today’s market. I agree that it must not have bugs when released but when a product is hyped for two years before release, it is likely to fail because it will never live up to expectations. I with all of the other wearable smart devices coming out, I would not pay more than $400 maybe $500 at most. I doubt it will be released at a lower cost at all this year when they just charged people $1500. I agree with the others in saying I am now looking forward to the smart watches from Moto and maybe Google…

    Why does Glass already seem like a failed project already?

    • picaso86

      We heard about it so much without having the chance to use it that its seems pretty “old” already.

  • Tirionfive

    I hope google unveils a backup program linked to drive storage. I’m tired of having to do nand backups because Android has never had an official backup method (other than ADB). Point is, if I lose my phone, I should be able to tell it to backup and wipe.

    • Hershel

      agreed, thats the one of the only good things the iphone has
