Google Develops Headphones that Offers Real-Time Translation for Foreign Languages

Share On:

Google’s demo launch event took place last October, as they impressively demonstrated enabling an English speaker to hold a smooth direct conversation with a Swedish native, as mentioned in The Independent’s website.

“Having Pixel Buds is like you’ve got your own personal translator with you everywhere you go” stated a Google official. “Just imagine travelling to a country with a foreign language that you can’t speak until you use your new Google headphones that enable you to speak a foreign language properly and also understand what you are being told with no need for a third party to elaborate the whole conversation.”

And this is How It Works:

Let’s say you’re in Paris, and you want to order yourself a special French breakfast. All you have to do is hold down on the right earbud and say, ‘Help me speak French’. As you talk, your Pixel phone’s speaker will play out the translation out loud in fluent French, nifty right? When the waiter responds in French, you’ll hear the translation through your Pixel Buds, ultimately having you enjoy that French brunch you’ve always dreamt of having.

Google wireless earphone Pixel Buds support 40 languages, with a running cost of $159, give or take.

There are additional features in Google’s Pixel Buds earphones, for example they can play music, with a wireless touchpad on the right earbud, you may now swipe to adjust volume, fast-forward, rewind, play and pause audio.

Google also informed its fans and those who wait in rows for the upcoming sensation to get their new earphones -if and only if- they’re compatible with Pixel and Android phones that run on 7.0 Nougat versions or higher. This will definitely leave Apple users unhappy, but who’s to blame Google for reaching for a new summit to bridge the gap of communication between countries. This is definitely an item we endorse here as we look forwards to more of Google’s revolutionary products set to release this 2018.
