The Android Kitkat operating system is coming to Google's connected eyewear glass towards the end of the week PC Magazine reported Tuesday.

The operating system will give consumers more power for their battery, and one they can depend on all for $1,500 in a promotion that has openings available in Google's Glass Explorer program until the close of business Tuesday PC Magazine reported. The new system is a change from Android's 4.0.3 program.

"You've been asking us when the next round of updates were coming," the Google Glass team wrote in a blog post. "We know it's been a little while, but this is a big one and we think it's well worth the wait," the Google Glass team said in a blog post PC Magazine reported.

Google Glass already has many capabilities from game playing to listening to music.

Users can play tennis, a balance game which tests their ability to keep books on their head, clay shooter similar to the infamous duck hunt game, Match which evaluates how well one pairs patches with similar patterns, and Shape Splitter where shapes are broken up information on the blog said.

Google Glass music capabilities allows users to look for songs, review playlists, and hear music files in good quality sound with the device on their head.

Google users can also send friend requests to three of their close acquaintances, and listen to music.

Introduction into optometry offices is also a possibility Tech Crunch reported. This would be done through VSP or Vision Service Plans which gives Google employees health care benefits for their eyes.

Google launched its own version of headphones specifically made for the connected eyewear at $85 in December CNET reported at the time. The news is also the company's latest development for the product since it announced it is constantly working to improve it for consumers.
