Pixel Buds are wireless earbuds developed and marketed by Google. They were launched on October 4, 2017 at Google's Made By Google launch event and were immediately available for preorder for $159 on the Google Store.[1][2] They have the Google Assistant built-in and support Google Translate.

The distinguishing feature of Pixel Buds is their inclusion of the Google Assistant, a smart voice assistant. This allows the earbuds to translate conversations in real-time, among other standard features such as web search and media connectivity.[3][4][5] It supports translation of 40 different languages.[5]

Reception of the Pixel Buds was mostly negative, with much of the criticism being aimed towards its seemingly bad case design.[6][7][8] Recent sources announced, "Google Translate is available on all Assistant-optimized headphones and Android phones."[9]
