American company Google recently announced the release of its Google Pixel 2 phone and other products that work together with the phone.
One of the new products is a pair of wireless earphones Google calls Pixel Buds.
The earphones are seen as the company’s answer to competitor Apple’s popular AirPod headphones.
At a launch event on October 4, Google said its Pixel Buds were built to provide high-quality sound and hands-free use. All of their operations can be controlled by simply touching the right earphone.
Once the headphones are paired with a Pixel phone, its many features can be used through the Pixel Buds.
One example is Google Assistant, the company’s artificial intelligence, or AI, service. Users can now talk directly to Pixel Buds to ask Google Assistant questions, get information or other help. This can all be done without touching the telephone.
