Real-Time Translation On Its Way To The Google Assistant Headphones

Real-time Google Translate is no longer just for Pixel. ― Reuters pic

And now, Google is bringing the same functionality to other headphones that feature support for the company's virtual digital assistant.

Previously only available on Google's own Pixel Buds paired with a Pixel phone, real-time Google Translate listens allows two people to hold a conversation in two different languages at the same time.

Google has not been very clear in their update when exactly the feature will start rolling out to individual headphones though.

The Google Pixel 3 has been given some fantastic camera smarts but when it comes to videography, you now have to rely on the phone's in-built mics. Instead of relying on third-party apps like One Camera, Pixel users will finally get the benefit of software support on the device via Google itself.

UK, US may boycott Saudi conference over journalist's killing
News that the CEO of Uber, Dara Khosrowshahi, would pull out of the conference drew angry responses across the region. Prince Mohammed, King Salman's son, has aggressively pitched the kingdom as a destination for foreign investment.

This move basically opens up the feature to pretty much everyone that owns compatible headphones.

Furthermore, the publication writes that this change was expected as Korean electronic giant, LG's newly released LG Tone SE Neckbuds and the USB Type-C headphones that are included in the box with the newly launched Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL headphones both come with the real-time translate feature. So you can only try the headphones or earphones to see if the feature is working or not.

Ever since the first-generation Pixel and Pixel XL were launched in 2016, Google's Pixel smartphones have become renowned for their superior imaging capabilities.

Real-time translation was already available on the Google Pixel buds. However, the earbuds didn't get a stage time. There is an in-line controller as well with a button in the middle to trigger Google Assistant.
