This month's Google Glass update isn't quite as comprehensive as what we've seen in the past, but it still includes a couple of useful additions. If you use Glass for navigation purposes, it's now easier than ever to find your way back home (or the office). Google says that "by popular demand" it's added a feature that lets you say "okay Glass, get directions home" for immediate directions to your destination.

Google also wants to make it easier for Glass Explorers to keep track of appointments. Users can say a new "okay glass, Google" command followed by "my agenda” for details, or get more specific with something like "what am I doing in November?" The company's blog post promises that "this will help you get there on time, keep track of what’s next, and avoid double-booking." Whether or not that's true we can't say, but what's clear is that Google is determined to keep iterating on Glass as it marches toward retail availability.
