Google Glass developer kit adds support for external webcams

Google has added support for external cameras to Google Glass, on top of the existing built-in imaging sensor. Android Police reports the latest Glass Development Kit update enables the use of an external webcam connected via a USB On-The-Go (OTG) cable, though it warns plug-and-play does not work, and if it includes a microphone, it may disable voice commands. Glass owners looking to try it out will have to wait for a developer to create an app for it, as Google does not supply an application to view through a connected webcam.




Google Play adds "Offline" subcategory to games store

Google Play now includes a subcategory for "Offline Games" in its online store. The listings, spotted on Reddit by Ubergizmo, are all for games which do not require an Internet connection to function, such as titles tied to some sort of online authentication like Facebook, something which makes the highlighted games suitable for traveling or in areas with little to no cellular signal.
