Real-time Google Translate coming to all Google Assistant-enabled headphones

One of the nifty Google Pixel exclusives is coming to more Android devices. Google updated the support page for the Pixel Buds to say that the real-time translation, which was an exclusive for the Pixel Buds paired with a Google Pixel phone, is coming to all Google Assistant-enabled headphones and Android devices. According to Droid Life, the change doesn’t seem surprising as the LG Tone SE and the Type-C Pixel earbuds that come with the Pixel 3 both have support for the feature.

Right now, there aren’t a lot of Google Assistant-optimized headphones. But if you have the Pixel Buds, Bose Quiet Control 35 II, Sony WI-1000X, Sony WH-1000XM2, Sony WH-1000XM3 and a couple more models by JBL, you can try out to see if it works. Just say “Hey Google, help me speak X” and see if it responds.

Google Pixel Buds update adds new gesture controls

Google has just updated the Pixel Buds to bring some new highly-requested features to the Bluetooth earbuds. One is being able to turn the Pixel Buds on or off by triple tapping on the right earbud. Another is using the double tap option to skip tracks. This gesture currently prompts your notifications to be read out loud. You can switch to this new gesture in the Pixel Buds setting on the Google Assistant app on your phone. Lastly, it’s easier to switch Pixel Buds between the devices it’s connected to by selecting it from the Bluetooth menu on a paired device. This will disconnect it from whatever else device it’s connected to.

Review: Google Pixel Buds

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

Few gadgets have been as anticipated as Google's Pixel Buds. These are neck buds which feature Google features and services and are Google's answer to Apple's popular and iconic AirPods.

Just like the AirPods, the Google Pixel Buds are designed to work best with the latest and greatest flagship Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, although they make pretty good Bluetooth headphones for almost any Android and iOS smartphone.

The Pixel Buds work best with Android smartphones, specifically the Pixel 2 devices, which don't just work in tandem with the headphones but also unlock all the features like the real-time language translation.

Google Pixel Buds start shipping in the US from the Google Store

While the Google Pixel Buds were announced at the same time as the Pixel 2 devices, it’s taken a bit more time for Google to start shipping these out. Android Authority reports that Google has started sending out shipping notifications for early orders. The Pixel Buds is a Bluetooth headset that has a wire that runs between the two buds so you don’t have to worry about losing one of them. You can just have the hanging off your neck when you’re not using them.

One of the Pixel Buds’s biggest selling points is its ability to do real-time translations via Google Translate. You just have to have the app open and it can translate as it happens 40 supported languages. You’ll hear these translations over Pixel Buds. Of course, it also comes with Google Assistant support, too. The Pixel Buds come in Just Black, Clearly White, and Kinda Blue and retail for $219. Hopefully it makes its way here soon, too. Let us know if you get notifications from Google. Best Buy Canada will also be carrying the headset.
