Google Glasses update 20.1
The consumers are most likely to appreciate the latest update (20.1) of the Google glasses. The update has a much appreciated and trendier look. Some even say that the glasses now pull off a very sci-fi look.
The wearable machine has a better contacts management system as compared to earlier versions, allowing the user to have quicker access to friends. Twenty of the favorite contacts can be reached through voice commands, meanwhile the rest of the phone book can be also be accessed faster than before. The number of contacts is no more limited to 10 and the users can now access a fully-fledged phonebook. In addition, the mode of communication can also be switched with merely a swipe. You can switch from mailing to instant messaging to voice calling or internet calling instantly.
The new glass can show you nearby events such as concerts and other gatherings. Moreover, it also has a currency convertor in the Google Now for when you are travelling. Simple tasks such as voice control, sending a photograph, mailing a friend and such are now merely a few voice commands away.
The initial interest and hype that was going on about the Google glasses have mellowed down now. As an indicator of the consumer’s interest, this news does not give positive vibes. Hence, before going on to retail, Google might reconsider their marketing pitch once again. We might also expect a few more updates before the glasses can be accepted as a consumer electronic in the market. It might also attract concerns from law enforcers and policy makers to further ensure privacy and security.
