  • American company Google recently announced the release of its Google Pixel 2 phone and other products that work together with the phone.
  • 2
  • One of the new products is a pair of wireless earphones Google calls Pixel Buds.
  • 3
  • The earphones are seen as the company's answer to competitor Apple's popular AirPod headphones.
  • 4
  • At a launch event on October 4, Google said its Pixel Buds were built to provide high-quality sound and hands-free use.
  • 5
  • All of their operations can be controlled by simply touching the right earphone.
  • 6
  • Once the headphones are paired with a Pixel phone, its many features can be used through the Pixel Buds.
  • 7
  • One example is Google Assistant, the company's artificial intelligence, or AI, service.
  • 8
  • Users can now talk directly to Pixel Buds to ask Google Assistant questions, get information or other help.
  • 9
  • This can all be done without touching the telephone.
  • 10
  • The Pixel Buds also can work with Google Translate, the service that provides words and expressions in over 100 languages.
  • 11
  • Google product manager Juston Payne demonstrated this feature during the launch event.
  • 12
  • He was able to talk with someone whose native language is Swedish.
  • 13
  • When the person spoke Swedish into the Pixel Buds, the phone's speakers provided the translation in English.
  • 14
  • The English speaker's response was then translated in real time into Swedish and heard through the Pixel Buds.
  • 15
  • "Hey Isabelle, how's it going? (Swedish translation) Absolutely! Ok, thank you. What do you think of these cool headphones? (Swedish translation) My team designed them, so I think they're pretty cool..."
  • 16
  • Juston Payne said the feature was created to provide a more natural language experience for users of Google Translate.
  • 17
  • He added that it was "like having a personal translator by your side."
  • 18
  • Pixel Buds are made in three colors: Just Black, Clearly White and Kinda Blue.
  • 19
  • They come with a charging case that Google says provides up to 24 hours of listening time.
  • 20
  • Pixel Buds are selling for $159 and can be ordered now.
  • 21
  • They will be available, beginning in November, in six countries: Australia, Britain, Canada, Germany, Singapore and the United States.
