8 Things You Should Know About the New Google Pixel Buds

Google Pixel Buds

1. It has one touch control

You can answer phone calls, adjust the volume, and play music without reaching for your phone. All audio controls are built into a touchpad on the right earbud. Plus, you look kinda cool tapping on your earbud like an Avenger.

2. You can access Google Assistant with it

With a simple touch of the right earbud, you can ask your Google Assistant for help. It can play music, send a text, or get directions for you without needing to use your phone.

3. Check your messages without looking

Your Google Assistant can even read your messages out to you. Simply double-tap on the right earbud after hearing a notification alert and Google Assistant will read the new message to you.

4. Real-time translation with Google Translate

Going overseas and need to make awkward conversation with people speaking a foreign tongue? Your earphones hear you and your Pixel’s speaker will play the translation in another language. When the other person speaks, you’ll hear the translation right in your ear.

5. Connect to your phone with one tap

Open Google Pixel Buds’ charging case near Pixel or phones running Android Nougat or newer to pair quickly and easily. Just tap connect on the notification on your phone and you’re ready to get started.

6. It has a damn long battery life

Google Pixel Buds provide up to 5 hours of listening time with just one charge. The pocket sized charging case holds multiple charges, so you can get up to 24 hours of listening time for when you’re on the go.

7. They’re very comfortable to wear

The Pixel Buds have a fabric loop that you can adjust to fit in your ear comfortably and securely. And, because the Pixel Buds are connected, you can hang them around your neck when you’re not using them.

8. Built-in Microphone

The built-in microphone is tuned to focus on your voice and filter out background noise, like kids singing along to Let it Go or annoying colleagues chattering on and on.
