Nexus One over-the-air update begins today, brings multitouch

February 2nd, 2010 at 3:38 PM

Good news for early adopters of the Nexus One, you’re getting your very first software update! Aside from some bug squshing, Google has included a few extra, and highly requested, features in the update:

Google Goggles: this mobile application will now be available directly on your device by launching it from your All Apps menu. Just use your Nexus One camera to start searching the web

Google Maps: the Maps application with be updated to a new version, Google Maps 3.4, which will include:

  • Starred items synchronized with maps.google.com – access your favorite places from your phone or computer
  • Search suggestions from your personal maps.google.com history – makes it easy to search for places you’ve searched for before
  • Night mode in Google Maps Navigation – automatically changes your screen at night for easier viewing and driving
Pinch-to-zoom functionality: devices will now include a new pinch-to-zoom mechanism in the phone’s Browser, Gallery and Maps applications

3G connectivity: we will provide a general fix to help improve 3G connectivity on some Nexus One phones

The biggest improvement on this list is obviously the addition of pinch-to-zoom functionality in the browser, picture gallery, and maps application; however the “night mode” in Google Maps Navigation is a nice refinement.  The update, which will be rolled out throughout the week, will present you with a message in the notification bar when Google decides it is your turn. Hit up the official press release to read the official announcement.
