Google Glass KitKat Update arrives prior to Glass’s availability Today

The team behind the Google Glass is pushing a big software update later this week. The newest version of Android will be employed by the gadget and a number of new features will be incorporated. Android KitKat will be used in the Google Glass, and new features will be brought to apps and developers will be able to use the latest SDK.

Glass is aiming at organizing photos in bundles. This will be similar to the Instagram photo grids and will allow for easier scrolling; photo replies in Google Hangouts as well as makes it easier to send feedback and even categorizes voice commands to station the most frequently used ones at the top.

Unfortunately, there's also one feature that has been removed in this update, "video calling." According to the Glass team this decision is based on user feedback, taking into account the fact that less than 10 percent of these users were employing this feature, it has been removed unless of course it can be improved upon. On a brighter side, a longer and complete list of new features is promised for the Explorers community which can possibly act as a compensation for the removal of this feature.

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.
