The new feature provides better performance in low-light areas and rapidly snaps several photos to help users get the perfect shot.

Google Glass just got a little bit better.

The search giant on Tuesday announced new software for the Google Glass camera that will improve photo taking. The update gives Glass the ability to snap multiple photos at once and combine them, so users can get the best shot. The camera can now also detect low-light environments and will automatically brighten an image to make it clearer. It's also capable of doing a better job of capturing movement.

In addition to the new camera features, users can now also add captions to photos they take.

Of course, there's one problem with all of this: Google Glass is available only to a small number of testers. For the rest of us, it's just more wearable-tech features we won't be able to use.
