Google’s Pixel Buds pair with the Pixel smartphone and use Google Translate to translate languages in real time.

With these earbuds, someone could be standing in front of you speaking French, and the earbuds will feed you the English translation. You can then hold down your right earbud and speak in English, and your phone will project the French translation from the Pixel’s speaker, so the other person can hear. The earbuds can translate 40 different languages!
