First software update for Google Glass

First software update for Google Glass
Google Glass has received its first software update, known more precisely as the XE5 update, which is being received by Glass owners OTA. The update brings some pretty important fixes and changes to the device, including a more realistic estimate of remaining battery life on the specs, incoming G+ notifications with the ability for the user to comment and add '+1' to messages, and a Device Info card that shows the serial number of your Google Glass.

The update will now allow a long press from anywhere inside the UI to call up search functions and transcriptions of queries and messages is now (these are Google's words) 'wicked fast'. You can start the update only once the device is plugged into the charger, which needs to be plugged into the wall at the time. The update is not a short one, so while you let Google Glass do its thing, you might want to recapture some of that lost magic you used to have by reconnecting with your smartphone.
