Pixel Buds bring Google smarts right to your ears. Touch and hold the right earbud to ask your Assistant to play music, make a phone call, or get directions, all without pulling out your phone. You can even translate between 40 languages in real time using Google Translate on Pixel, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The form was reduced to a simple silhouette that leverages a fabric cord as an ergonomic, adjustable ear-loop without the need for extra pieces or clunky remotes. The challenge of cable management was solved with an innovative wrap, allowing the earbuds to be neatly stowed inside the pocket-sized charging case for on-the-go power.
