The biggest news about the update is that KitKat is coming to Google Glass, bringing with it under the hood changes and massive improvements to battery life. Also now that Glass runs Andriod KitKat, developers can write Glassware apps using the Android SDK.

Other changes the update also includes:

  • Photo bundles — Your pictures will be sorted as bundles, making them easier to navigate through.
  • Photo replies in Hangouts – You’ll be able to send images through Hangouts, as well as receive them.
  • Sending feedback – Sending feedback will be easier and will have a dedicated card in the settings.
  • Voice command sorting – Voice commands are now sorted by recency and frequency.
  • Video calls will be removed – Google is removing video calls from Glass for the forseeable future.

Added as a teaser at the end, Google say there’s a ton more features being rolled out as part of this update so advise to watch the Glass Journal in the Explorers Community to see the rest.
