Google Pixel Buds – Wireless headphones and Universal Translator

Google has revealed its set of wireless headphones, designed for use with its range of smartphones, called Pixel Buds.

Pixel Buds have five hours of listening time on a single charge, and include a pocket-sized charging case which holds multiple charges – offering up to 24 hours of listening time.

They are automatically detected by any phone running Android 7.0 Nougat and up which run the Google Assistant. When you open the charging case, the phone will ask you if you want to connect the buds.

Pixel Buds also offer access to the Google Assistant by touching the right bud.

This will let you issue instructions to Google Assistant, and access Google Translate to conduct conversations in foreign languages.

With Pixel Buds, you can speak in your native language and have Google translate what you are saying in real-time through the phone’s speaker.

The person you are speaking to may then respond in their native language, and Google will translate what they are saying into the buds.

Real-time translation is offered in 40 languages, said Google.

Pre-orders for Pixel Buds are open today, and they will launch in the US during November for $159.
