Latest update for Google Glass adds photo and video backup, and more |

Backing up photos and videos only takes place when Glass is on charge, and connected to your Wi-Fi network. If you want to force a backup, this is now possible, where you simply swipe up to the Auto Backup card in Settings and tap it to begin backing your Glass up. Clearing videos and photos from your timeline, according to Google its: "one of our top community requests". Clearing all of the photos and videos from your timeline can be done by tapping the Auto Backup card, and then swiping up forward.

The last part of the update is to Glass being smarter at answering phone calls. If you answer the phone call with your smartphone, the smartphone will take over the audio, if you answer on Glass, the Glass will be responsible for audio. If Glass is left inactive (such as when it detects it's not on your face) then phone calls won't be blasted to it.
