Google Glass XE10 update adds transit directions

Cunningly titled ‘Another one rides the bus’ the latest update to the Google Glass Explorer wearable labelled ‘XE10’, is rolling out to Glass Explorers right now. The update includes most importantly the addition of Public Transit directions as well as the ability to tap to select links in notifications.

In their update which was announced on Google Plus

We have loads of great updates every month, but there’s one we’re particularly jazz hands about — Transit. Explorers who have paired Glass to their Android phones will now have the option to see public transit directions when navigating on Glass. When you get directions and select transit, you’ll be able to see all sorts of helpful info, like where to change trains, how far you have to walk to the bus stop and how long it should take to reach your final destination.

Another feature you’ve asked for is the ability to tap to select links in notifications. Weeellll, now you can.

As with all monthly releases, you can find the rest of our updates in the MyGlass Explorers Community.

As Glass is available to US residents only, it’s unknown if these transit directions extend outside the US borders, however as Glass Explorers are free to travel internationally, it would be safe to assume they would.
