The monthly Google Glass software update arrived on Monday, bringing two new functions to Google’s wearable computer. Transit information is now available in Glass, making it easier to find step-by-step directions for public transportation in the local area. Also in the update is the ability to tap links sent in tweets, texts, emails, and more, which will open the appropriate web page in Glass.
Google’s release notes for the XE 10 software update also mention a minor addition: When sending a message to a contact, you’ll now see their profile pic in the background. What’s not in XE 10 is the expected support for additional third-party apps through Google’s Glassware program. The company started up a review process for Glassware last week, so it appears that these apps won’t be available for at least another month.
