Google Glass gets XE11 update, adds new directions, calendar search, setup and screencasting shortcut


Google Glass XE11 update

A quick heads up for you folks (OK, you few folks) out there sporting Google Glass. The November update XE11 is now available.

New this month is the ability to designate home and work locations on Glass just like you can in Google Maps, the easier to find your way home or to work. (And, more important, to route you around any traffic.)

You'll also be getting personalized calendar search, so you can ask Glass to show you what's coming up.

There's a new setup scheme as well, but you'll need to do a hard-reset to see that.

And finally there's a new shortcut in the notification drawer of your phone for screencasting.

Google's also changed up the shortcut for initiating a search. Instead of long-pressing the touchpad, you'll need to tap it three times slowly when the display is off.
