Google launches its own Bluetooth headphones and came up with a killer feature to market them. Called the Pixel Buds, these earphones can be used for listening to your favorite music but if they're connected to an Android phone with Google Assistant, they basically turn into Star Trek's Universal Translator:
Pixel Buds can even translate between languages in real time using Google Translate on Pixel. It’s like you’ve got your own personal translator with you everywhere you go. 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. If you’re more of a sushi or French food fan, no need to worry—it works in 40 languages.
The headphones have a 120mAh battery which should be good for five hours. If that's not enough, they come with a compact charging case that features a 620mAh battery to recharge the product throughout the day.
Pixel Buds headphones feature touchpad audio controls, so there aren't any buttons on the cord. Shipments start in November for $159 (179EUR).
