As reported yesterday, Google has updated the Nexus 7 2013 (WiFi), Nexus 9 (WiFi), and Nexus 10 to Android 5.0.1. Factory images were already posted, which you can use to manually update your device, but unless you’re unlocked, the preferred method is updating with the actual over-the-air (OTA) update since you won’t lose your data.

Good news!! The OTA updates are now available to download for the Nexus 7 2013 (WiFi) and the Nexus 10. The Nexus 9 should be available shortly.

We have the download links after the break, and don’t forget to check out our extensive guide on installing the OTA update to your Nexus device. If you prefer to go the factory image route, we have an extensive guide on that one as well.

In this week’s Google Glass update, you can expect several new features to be added. You will now be able to automatically backup your photos and videos when you’re plugged into Wi-Fi, rather than wasting your bandwidth on the go. You’ll also be able to clear all photos and videos from your timeline in one simple step, which was apparently a much desired feature from Glass users. Last but not least, Google has taken steps with Glass to be a little smarter about answering your phone calls.
