Steve Lee, Product Director for Google Glass, Isabelle Olsson, the lead industrial designer on Glass, Senior Developer Advocate Timothy Jordan and Glass engineer Charles Mendis held a chat with developers and press on Thursday at the Google I/O conference.
Jordan announced that Google didn’t have an updated timeline for the release of Glass (it previously said that it would be showing up for consumers next year) but did confirm that it had ‘invited’ all 2,000 Explorers who had pre-ordered at Google I/O last year to pick up their glass.
F**k it, we'll do it live!
Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.
During the chat, Lee announced that Google would be shipping one software update every month with new features, polish and bug fixes. Many of the updates would incorporate suggestions from developers and Glass Explorers.
As far as what kinds of apps they would individually like to see on Glass, Lee says he’d love to see fitness apps on the device. Mendis says that he’d love to see payment apps integrated with the app, especially when he’s shopping with his kids. Olsson said she loves Karaoke and wouldn’t mind seeing some sort of experience show up on Glass.
