Google has announced a new update to its Google Glass firmware that will provide access to all your phone contacts on the headset.

Your top 20 contacts will be available by voice command, and you’ll have to swipe to get to the rest. Earlier versions of the software only allowed you to store up to 10 contacts via Glass.

Glass users will now have the option to choose between Hangouts, email and SMS when tapping on a contact.

Android users can take advantage of the new features as soon as the Glass update is live, while Google is working on a new version of the My Glass iOS app that should arrive “in the next week or so.”
