Google Glass is apparently still around — and only got the initial refurbish in scarcely 3 years


Dust off your Google Glasses, those who still have them — a $1,500 face mechanism is behind in a spotlight currently with a few updates.

Today, in a initial refurbish given Sep 2014, Google Glass got a “MyGlass” messenger app update, some bug fixes and now supports Bluetooth. That means a new “XE23” chronicle can now offshoot adult mice, keyboards and other Bluetooth-enabled objects to their Glass device.

The app refurbish rolled out yesterday and, in an even bigger surprise, a firmware refurbish for Glass came out today.

So, Glass is alive? Well, yes, though it never unequivocally died. Despite ostensible to go a approach of a Dodo (you can’t buy it anymore and Google close down a website in 2015), it never unequivocally left us, it only “graduated” from Google X after unwell to constraint consumer attention. Google afterwards sensitively changed it into the enterprise. But, apparently, someone during Google is still operative on a dork-inducing consumer version.

We don’t know because Google chose to recover these dual updates. It’s peculiar for an refurbish to cocktail adult after scarcely 3 years — generally one but too most of a disproportion from a aged version. But it shows Google has not totally lost about a optical-mounted wearable.
