Washington: Google has reportedly given a software update to its much-anticipated wearable computing device Google Glass ahead of its launch.
The search giant released another update XE10 for its Google Glass Explorers team across the US.
According to Fox News, the new update allows users to have detailed instructions in step-by-step transit feature from the home screen of the hi-tech eye gear, which also takes into account previous transit modes used by the wearer.
However, the latest mapping update isn`t compatible with Apple iOS as yet and works only when paired with an Android device.
The software update also features notifications from particular sites, texts, emails, and tweets, and users can tap on the card and select `view site` to see the messages.
Another tweak shows up the profile image of the person one is sending a message or comment to behind the text, providing a constant visual reminder of the intended recipient.
The Google Glass is expected to be rolled out to the masses in the next year.
