Google is cutting off support to Google Glass Explorer Edition

Google has just one more update for Google Glass Explorer Edition before support is removed for the wearable

Google unveiled its from-the-future Project Glass all the way back in 2012 for an eye-opening $1500 at the time, and while Google Glass Explorer Edition was a fun ride -- that ride is close to being over.


The company has just announced Google Glass Explorer Edition has one more update before Google ends support for it, with Google explaining that Google Glass Explorer Edition owners will have to manually download, unzip, and then install the latest update for their wearable.

Google explains: "Glass Explorer Edition is receiving a final update that you will need to manually install. After February 25, 2020, this update removes the need and ability to use your Google account on Glass. It also removes Glass' connection to backend services. This update is available now and should be installed so you can continue using your device without issues".

Updating your Google Glass Explorer Edition headset will let you pair your Glass with your smartphone, and while the MyGlass app won't work, Bluetooth pairing does. This means you can still snap photos and take video, but mirror apps including Gmail, YouTube, and Hangouts won't work.

The update itself will be available until February 25, 2022.
