During today’s Google Pixel 2 event, the company unveiled tons of new features and upcoming new devices that’ll be hitting the market and change the way we communicate. One device in particular that has caught wide attention is Google’s new headphones named Pixel Buds.
Pixel Buds aren’t just your ordinary headphones, yes they come with the ability to hear music and sync it with your phone—in this case, the Pixel 2—for alerts, phone calls and even map directions. The Buds has one feature that’s far more impressive, its able to translate between 40 different languages—IN REAL TIME. During the live presentation, the audience was shown a quick but very impressive demo in which you can see in the video below. Although this new tech isn’t new and has been around for some time, Google has made the tech far more simple and convenient for anyone to use.
Our Take: One small critique is one will need to have access to the internet from their phone or any local WIFI to access this feature. From what was shown in the presentation, the headphones suffered from zero lag and received the response almost instantaneously—let’s hope this is the case come its release Fall 2017
