Google update Glass with improved voice control and more

| Wearable Computing News | Posted: Jul 2, 2013 4:07 am

Google have pushed out an update to their wearable device, Glass, which improves the experience for most people. Voice controls have been improved, which now handle the incoming and outgoing text messages, answering calls and sharing directly with your friends with voice-only commands.

Glass can now interact with your entire Google Contacts list, compared to the previous firmware which could only handle the previous ten favorite friends list. Google have also included full web page viewing from Google Search results in Glass. This means that after you make a search, you can tap on a "View website" screen to be taken to a full view of the page.

 

From here, you'll be able to scroll up and down with two fingers on the touch pad to the side of your Glass, or hold two fingers and move their head to pan around the page.
