Google Glass Updated With Video Player, Improved Voice Commands and Additional Now Cards
Google has added some new features to the Google Glass in the latest software update for its experiment. There’s a new video player with simple tap to start/pause, swipe to fast forward and rewind commands, and new voice commands for posting an update.
Path and Evernote users can update those apps by saying “okay glass, post an update” for Path or “okay glass, take a note” for Evernote. Speaking of which, voice controls are improved across the board, so you can now chat with Glass more naturally. Which can be a great if it recognizes the voice in neutral accent.
Google also added a new Volume control card in settings, and made it possible to check your timeline and use other features of Google Glass Glass while on an active video call.
The new update also has new cards which includes appointments drawn from your Gmail, nearby movie showtimes with posters, public alerts and the ability to send birthday messages for birthday reminder cards. The new update is named as XE8. Google is constantly trying to improvise the Glass, we will have to wait and see what the final device would look like.
