Google Glass is very much now in beta testing. The Explorer Edition of Glass has now been updated with new firmware. One of Google Glass Explorers, Nick Starr has shared on Explorer's G+ page (via Engadget) that Google Glass no longer requires a dedicated Bluetooth tethering plan for smartphone data sharing

He stated, "XE 9 and Bluetooth data. Anyone else seeing this now? I turned off bluetooth tethering and confirmed that I still show Bluetooth data on Glass and am able to perform searches, turn by turn, SMS, etc. Seems as if data is coming through the MyGlass app now (there are bi-direction icons next to the MyGlass app in the notification bar)."

It means that tethering plan has been removed from Glass Explorer's edition.  Google Glass companion Android app is now used for data sharing. A new app notification icon with 2 arrows is present there to show the sending and receiving of data. But this new feature is a big worry for carriers. But Google should not have to push back this feature in public version.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
