What to expect from the M400 OS update version 2.4.0

Most notably, OS Version 2.4.0 lets users connect to Verizon’s 5G network by plugging directly into certain 5G phones and hotspots. This is possible through any 5G-enabled smartphone and enables calls from virtually anywhere without the use of a phone. 

Other improvements to the M400 from OS update 2.4.0:

  • Voice commands: By adding an option to display speech bubbles, users can now control more apps than ever (including Microsoft Teams) using their voice.
  • Security upgrade: Users can now unlock their M400 device hands-free. This is especially helpful in operating rooms and laboratory environments, where sanitation issues make hands-free device control a priority. Device security is in no way compromised by this feature, as cutting-edge voice recognition technology is used.
  • Hands-free reading: Users can navigate PDFs simply by moving their head. This feature allows users to control document views with their head motion, and stay hands-free while using work instructions. The implications in healthcare, warehousing, field service work and other industries are exciting as users aren’t delayed by the use of handheld devices. 
  • WiFi-plus: It’s now easier for user’s to get their location from WiFi networks and the Vuzix Companion app

  • This update represents another step forward to smart glasses, as the improvements detailed above make it easier for businesses to benefit from the hands-free devices.
