New Google Earbuds Can Translate Different Languages in Real-Time


Google released a new line of super-smart products on Wednesday, including new earbuds that can translate different languages in real-time.

These premium wireless headphones called the “Google Pixel Buds”, are easily paired with the new handset, the Google Pixel 2, and can work with Google Assistant, Google's artificially intelligent voice-activated product.

The earbuds can translate up to 40 languages, and when partnered with the Google Assistant, can also alert users to notifications, send texts and give directions.

"That was one of the best tech demos I've seen in a long time," said Current Analysis consumer devices research director Avi Greengart.

The translation feature can be used by saying "help me speak French," or any other language, according to The Verge, which got a preview of the device.

You can control volume with the right earbud, Google product manager Juston Payne said on stage at the company's event.

"It's an incredible application of Google Translate powered by machine learning — it's like having a personal translator by your side," Payne said.

Pixel Buds are priced at $159.00 and will be available in the United States at the beginning of November. They are currently available for pre-order.
