This morning we announced the new Glass Enterprise Edition program, where Glass is being used in enterprise environments to help improve worker performance in all kinds of scenarios.

Note that this enterprise version is not available to the general public, and is available through a set of partners that build custom versions of the software for each individual application.

Check out the blog post here for an update:

The main site is here, and contains an FAQ with some more information:

Today we are launching a preview of the Android Things Console. This console allows developers to manage the software running on their fleet of Android Things IoT devices, including creating factory images, as well as updating the operating system and developer-provided APKs. Devices need to run a system image downloaded via the Android Things Console in order to receive future updates, such as the upcoming Developer Preview 5. Google provides all of the infrastructure for over-the-air (OTA) updates, so developers can focus on their specific application and not have to build their own implementation – getting their IoT devices to enter the market faster and more securely than before. See the blog post for more information and try the console at #AndroidThings
