Google's New Earbuds Could Change How People Communicate

Google's New Earbuds Could Change How People Communicate

Before launching the smartphones, Google silently launched a new app called Pixel Ambient Services.

Google also launched a new Daydream View headset with high-performance lenses. It builds on Google's advancements in computer vision and machine learning, combined with Google knowledge graph which underpins Google Search.

In fact, availability of Google phones remains to be one of the stumbling blocks of the phone's success.

If you are thinking of buying a new Pixel 2, will these two new features make that more likely? The buds provide 24 hours of listening time on a charge and can translate language in real time using Google Assistant technology.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai told investors earlier this year that Google Translate will take many steps forward this year. At least the feature is optional so you can disable it if it's causing too many problems.

As per the recent observations, the high-resolution images of both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL tend to match up with the previous leaks. However, it has been confirmed now as it is written clearly in the footnotes of the Pixel 2 listing on Google store. The Pixel Buds are a $159 set of wireless headphones that also tap into the Google Assistant that lives on your Pixel.

Google Pixel features a 6.00-inch touchscreen display, powered by 1.9GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor paired with 4GB of RAM.The device comes with 64GB of internal storage with no storage expansion options.

The Pixel is Google's flagship phone, created to show off the best possible version of the company's Android mobile operating system. Now, there is another good news for Pixel 2 buyers.

The principal range of note with the Google Pixel 2 camera is without a doubt the way that the engineer has decided on a solitary focal point outline. The smartphones have also some of the most advanced security features baked in. As such, the bar is definitely unnecessary at the time when the smart Google Assistant can be called up for help from any location by simply holding down the Home button. If you are a passenger playing music or connecting your phone to the vehicle, then it may still determine you as the driver rather than the passenger.

For convenience of users, Google is bundling an adapter in with the box that allows people to connect their existing headphones. This year's Pixel line-up bets big on artificial intelligence (AI), software and hardware.

"Overall, the key message for all their hardware products is Google Assistant - and that's another differentiator for Google", said Jitesh Ubrani, senior research analyst at IDC. You can always get the chargers from Amazon.
