  • American company Google recently announced the release of its Google Pixel 2 phone and other products that work together with the phone.
  • [00:14.15]
  • One of the new products is a pair of wireless earphones Google calls Pixel Buds.
  • [00:23.06]
  • The earphones are seen as the company’s answer to competitor Apple’s popular AirPod headphones.
  • [00:33.59]
  • At a launch event on October 4, Google said its Pixel Buds were built to provide high-quality sound and hands-free use.
  • [00:47.80]
  • All of their operations can be controlled by simply touching the right earphone.
  • [00:55.16]
  • Once the headphones are paired with a Pixel phone, its many features can be used through the Pixel Buds.
  • [01:05.68]
  • One example is Google Assistant, the company’s artificial intelligence, or AI, service.
  • [01:16.35]
  • Users can now talk directly to Pixel Buds to ask Google Assistant questions, get information or other help.

  • This can all be done without touching the telephone.
  • [01:33.60]

  • [01:46.55]
  • Google product manager Juston Payne demonstrated this feature during the launch event.
  • [01:54.77]
  • He was able to talk with someone whose native language is Swedish.
  • [02:00.99]
  • When the person spoke Swedish into the Pixel Buds, the phone’s speakers provided the translation in English.
  • [02:12.35]
  • The English speaker’s response was then translated in real time into Swedish and heard through the Pixel Buds.
  • [02:23.93]
  • “Hey Isabelle, how’s it going? (Swedish translation) Absolutely! Ok, thank you. What do you think of these cool headphones? (Swedish translation) My team designed them, so I think they’re pretty cool…”
