Google aggiornerà i Glass ad Android 4.4.2 KitKat nelle prossime settimane

2 marzo 2014 | android

Google ha comunicato stamane che nelle prossime settimane sarà rilasciato un nuovo aggiornamento per i  Google Glass, poichè sono stati rimandati due aggiornamenti dei Glass quello del mese di Gennaio e Febbraio.

Tale notizia rintristisce i possessori dei Glass, ma tale posticipo e dovuto ad un fatto ben preciso poichè il prossimo update sarà introdotto Android 4.4.2 KitKat nei Glass.

Teresa Z, Google Glass Community Guide, ci hanno informato che Google d’ora in poi gli aggiornamenti non saranno più rilasciati mensilmente, poichè saranno aggiornamenti più corposi che richiedono un maggiore sviluppo. Non ci resta che attendere le prossime settimane per scoprire le novità della versione software XE15, vi ricordiamo inoltre che attualmente i Glass posseggono la versione di Android Ice Cream Sandwich, quindi, sicuramente questo update introdurrà molte novità nei Glass, vi lasciamo al comunicato ufficiale di Google

The February Update

02-28-2014 05:19 PM

OK, before you read any further, make sure you’re sitting down. Are you sitting down now? Good.

We know that a lot of you have been patiently waiting for the next release. In fact, your excitement and anticipation for our upcoming releases always pushes us to come up with something that’s worth the wait. It needs to be good. And what we had planned for February just isn’t ready for primetime yet. So… we’ve decided to hold off for now.

[Go ahead, feel free to take a moment of silence to honor the fallen updates.]

I know this might be a disappointment to some of you. But it’s all part of the Explorer program. We’re trying a lot of things. Most of them work out great, and some of them need a little more polish. In this case, we’d rather wait to get it right, than release something that isn’t up to snuff.

Now the good news. We’re still moving extremely quickly. Since the first Explorers got their Glass less than a year ago, we’ve already been through eight updates – nine if you count last year’s hardware revision. The pace isn’t changing and we’re still committed to regular updates for Glass – even if they’re not monthly anymore, because bigger updates just take more time. In fact, we’re working to move Glass from Ice Cream Sandwich to Kit Kat to make the Glass experience smoother and just plain better. This change will make it easier for us to bring you more useful updates and it’s something we’re really excited about. Developers, we know you’re gonna be excited, too. But it’s also something that we don’t want to send to you all until it’s just right. (We did flip on sharing to Google+ communities, which was originally slated for this month’s updates – and something we know you’ve been waiting for.)

Now off we go to bake a little more awesome into the sauce.
