Google has pushed an update to Google Glass users that upgrades the camera functionality on the device. This update brings HDR capabilities to the device as well as the ability to automatically sense and brighten low-light shots. This update also allows Google Glass to more easily capture photos that have lots of movement.

Aside from improvements to the camera itself, Google has also brought the ability to add captions to photos taken with Google Glass. These captions can be added to photos by a simple voice command.

Glass is a new piece of wearable technology developed by Google. The device is worn like a standard pair of glasses and pairs with the user’s iOS or Android smartphone to connect to the web. You can use the device to send messages and update social feeds with a simple voice command. Glass also has a built-in camera and can run third-party apps that go under the name Glassware.

As of now, Google Glass is only being used by a small number of testers who paid over $1500 to be in the Explorer Program. The device went into the hands of these users in early 2013, though the device was originally announced at Google IO 2012.
