Google Pixel Buds to translate 40 languages in real time

Google has introduced a new kind of wiresless headphones named as “Google Pixel Buds“.

Google put all the audio controls into a touchpad on the right earbud, so there aren’t any buttons hanging on the cord. Just swipe forward or backward to control volume and tap to play or pause your music.

Charging and storing them is easy—they nestle right into a pocket-sized charging case that gives you up to 24 hours of listening time. Just open the charging case near your Pixel or Android phone running Android 7.0 Nougat or higher with the Assistant, and your phone will automatically detect them and ask you if you want to connect.

Touch and hold the right earbud to ask Google Assistant to play music, make a phone call, or get directions, all without pulling out your phone. If you’re waiting on a text from a friend, the Assistant can alert you to incoming message, and even read it to you if you can’t look at your phone at that moment.

Pixel Buds can even translate between languages in real time using Google Translate on Pixel. Say you’re in Little Italy, and you want to order your pasta like a pro. All you have to do is hold down on the right earbud and say, “Help me speak Italian.”

As you talk, your Pixel phone’s speaker will play the translation in Italian out loud. When the waiter responds in Italian, you’ll hear the translation through your Pixel Buds.

The real time translation works in 40 languages. Pixel Buds come in three colors— Just Black, Clearly White and Kinda Blue—to match with Google’s Pixel 2 phones. They’ll be available in November for $159 in the U.S . They’re also coming to Canada, U.K., Germany, Australia and Singapore in November.
