Football fans are gearing up for the World Cup and so is Google: The company is pushing out an update to Google Glass for World Cup scores, standings and news.

Sure, you can watch every match of the World Cup either on TV or online, provided you have the time. If you don’t, updates will have to do — and thanks to a software update, Google Glass owners can get match updates and standings pushed to their wearable device.

Google has traditionally followed a monthly release schedule for Glass software updates but lately has sped up the pace of change. Just last week, a software update added notifications when the hardware detects a user is looking at the screen, for example. The newest update was likely timed to coincide with the World Cup tournament, although it adds more than just soccer scores, news, and standings for your favorite football team.

Also included are two new Google Now cards to help you remember where you’ve parked your car and be notified when you are expecting or receive a shipment.

Glass also saves photos to the MyGlass app on Android, allowing for users to add filters or edit their images before sharing them with others. And to help better manage battery life on Glass, the new software will alert you when the battery level drops to 20 percent. Hopefully that doesn’t happen when your favorite country is on the pitch.
