  • Google’s Pixel Buds offer real time translation
  • Looks like tech giant Google is hopping on the full wireless train with the launch of Google Pixel Buds last October 4 (October 5 in Manila) at the Made by Google event.

    Google Pixel Buds are Google’s first wireless earbuds built for use with their Pixel smartphones. They do everything you’d expect from earbuds: you can listen to music as well as make and receive phone calls right from the right earbud.

    As the Pixel Buds are built for use with Pixel smartphones, you also have access to Google Assistant (Google’s version of Siri) simply by tapping or pressing your right earbud. Google Assistant can then read out notifications or text messages without you even having to take out the Pixel from your pocket.

    Pixel Buds can still work with other smartphones like the iPhone, but they’d be reduced to a mere $159 pair of wireless earbuds, similar to Apple’s AirPods. What separates them from AirPods is its real-time translation feature thanks to its integration with Google Translate, which the AirPods can’t do even with Siri’s translation capabilities.

    KINDA BLUE. Yes, they are indeed kind off blue.

    Pixel Buds were priced at US$ 159 and will be available in the US by November 2017. They will be available in three colors: Just Black, Clearly White, and Kinda Blue, and will last you five hours on a single charge. They will also come with a charging case that can make your Pixel Buds last for 24 hours.
