Google is ending support for the Explorer Edition of Glass

0

Google is rolling out one last update for the Explorer Edition of Glass as after that it will be ending the support for this wearable. Google introduced Project Glass in 2020 and launched it up for pre-orders for $1,500 each. However, many people reported their concern for privacy with Google Glass. 

Despite people raising privacy concerns about its ability to record videos, the company quickly released an upgraded version of the device. In response to that, the company released an Enterprise Edition in 2017. The company mentioned in the report that the support for Enterprise Edition will be continued. 

In a support page detailing the final update, Google says users will need to manually download, unzip and install the file. Doing so will allow them to pair Glass with their phone — MyGlass will no longer work, but Bluetooth pairing will stay — as well as take photos and videos, as usual.

Those who don’t update the device can continue using the Google Glass but some features like Gmail, YouTube and Hangouts will no longer work. The update will last until February 25, 2020. So, users are suggested to download and install the update before this date as failure to do so will restrict the users from using this Glass.
