Google Glass gets XE19.1 update with visual revamp and more
Even though Android Wear products have now hit the market, monthly updates for Google Glass have continually been rolling out — and this month is no exception. The Google Glass XE19.1 update, released yesterday evening, brings improved connectivity and more features to the ambitious face-mounted wearable.
Right off the bad, network connectivity has been improved.

The second and final item listed in the release notes is a visual revamp of the voice actions screen. It’s pictured above in the header image, and is a “sleeker, cleaner look” according to our friends from Mountain View.

Glass Explorers, how are you liking your eyewear? Are things like this Google Glass XE19.1 keeping you loving your device, or has Android Wear won you over?
