Google’s new Pixel Buds can translate 40 languages in real time
Google’s Pixel Buds are poised to shatter the concept of language barriers.
The tech giant’s first attempt at wireless ear buds, the Pixel Buds will be compatible with Google’s not yet released Pixel 2 smartphone. But these ear buds aren’t just for music—the Pixel Buds will work in sync with Google Translate to allow users to translate forty different languages in real time. It’s a tool that won’t just increase one’s ability to understand a foreign speaker, but to engage in a conversation with said speaker. An English speaker was shown to be able to successfully communicate with a Swedish speaker during a live demonstration of the Pixel Buds with the conversation moving fluidly along, unimpeded by any pauses or hesitations, thanks to the ear buds’ revolutionary technology.
Pixel Buds will also accommodate Bluetooth functions and come equipped with a five-hour battery life that may be supplemented through a chargeable case lending the Pixel Buds user a full twenty-four hours of extended use.
While the Pixel Buds will not be available until later in the year, snag a sneak peek of what remains to come via the live demonstration video above.
