In February 2020, Google will end support for the Glass Explorer Edition which was launched in 2017. The company rolls out the final update for the wearable before that. Google said users need to download, unzip, and manually install the update for their phones. Glass Enterprise Edition phones are not affected by the latest update, Google said. If you don’t update Glass Explorer Edition, and you’re currently signed in and using it, it will continue to work, but mirror applications like Gmail, YouTube, and Hangouts will stop working.

“Glass Explorer Edition is receiving a final update that you will need to manually install. After February 25, 2020, this update removes the need and ability to use your Google account on Glass.”


The Glass Explorer version was launched by Google in 2012. In April 2014, the product was first available for purchase in the US for $1500. Before that, it was only being sold to selective individuals.
