in terms of marketing for Google Glass
, but at least there are plenty of solid updates coming out, both in terms of the actual hardware and available apps.
Google noted in a Google+ post
that it’s already improved battery life by 20% and increased voice search speed by 10% along with new frames, shades, and support for prescription lenses, but it’s also improving both the hardware and the user experience. There are more Google Now cards, and they added a little onscreen frame for the viewfinder to help you take better pictures.
Perhaps most notably, new Glass devices will ship with 2GB of RAM.
There’s also new Glassware--12 new apps, to be exact. You can read through the full list in detail here
, but they include the Runtastic personal trainer; 94Fifty Basketball trainer; a language teacher in Duolingo; the GuidiGO virtual tour guide; a zombie game; Shazam; and more.
As Google announced yesterday
, Glass is also now coming to the UK.
