Did you pre-order a pair of Pixel Buds for $159? The good news is that orders have started shipping. Unlike the wireless Apple AirPods or the Samsung IconX, both ear pieces are connected by a cable. The right earbud not only awakens Google Assistant, it also activates the cool real time Google Translate feature. With the latter, one person wearing the Pixel Buds can speak in Spanish to someone with a Pixel phone who speaks English. Thanks to Translate, both parties will be able to hear in their own language exactly what the other person said. Right now, about 40 different languages are supported.
