Name restrictions on Google+ ...
When we launched Google+ over three years ago, we had a lot of restrictions on what name you could use on your profile. This helped create a community made up of real people, but it also excluded a number of people who wanted to be part of it without using their real names. 

Over the years, as Google+ grew and its community became established, we steadily opened up this policy, from allowing +Page owners to use any name of their choosing to letting YouTube users bring their usernames into Google+. Today, we are taking the last step: there are no more restrictions on what name you can use. 

We know you've been calling for this change for a while. We know that our names policy has been unclear, and this has led to some unnecessarily difficult experiences for some of our users. For this we apologize, and we hope that today's change is a step toward making Google+ the welcoming and inclusive place that we want it to be. Thank you for expressing your opinions so passionately, and thanks for continuing to make Google+ the thoughtful community that it is.

Just in time for I/O… brand new Glassware

You probably didn’t expect us back with another update so soon, but we’ve got a few new Glassware coming your way. Well, 12 to be exact. 

Runtastic is your personal trainer. You’ll have a collection of workouts to help whip you into shape or push you to reach your fitness goals. 

94Fifty Basketball works with the 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball to help you with your game. It measures muscle memory that the human eye can’t see. You’ll get feedback after each shot to help you shoot like Ray Allen. (ok, maybe not Ray Allen but maybe it’ll help you make varsity.)

The Guardian keeps you up to date on breaking news alerts and lets you save the articles you want to read later. 

Duolingo makes learning a new language feel more like a game and less like high school Spanish class.

GuidiGO is your personal tour guide. Choose from 27 destinations and over 250 guided tours. Relive the Impressionist history of Montmartre, the magic of the Hagia Sofia in Istanbul, or the hidden secrets of San Francisco!

Allthecooks is no stranger to Glass, but they’ve added some new features to keep your hands free while cooking. You can now use voice commands to switch between recipes and directions. 

Zombies, Run! Because let’s face it, running is more fun when you’re being chased by zombies. 

Starchart lets you look up at the sky and explore the stars, planets and constellations above.

Shazam on Glass can tell you the name of the track and artist of a song that’s playing around you. Just say “OK Glass, Recognize this song.” lets you keep up with everything happening in the world of football. (World Cup fans, we’re looking at you.)

Livestream let’s you broadcast live video, read chat messages from your audience and share your point of view via social networks.

musiXmatch picks up on the music playing around you and shows you the song lyrics for songs in any language.
