The most awaited Google Pixel Buds are now available in Singapore from today, boasting a range of facilities. Google's first headphones will cost SGD238 and are available in one colour, black.
Pixel buds are making their debut in Singapore first in the Southeast Asian region followed closely after the launch of Google Pixel 2XL last month.
In a press release, Google said, “The wireless headphones can be bought at Singtel retail outlets. Customers can also pre-order at online retailer Lazada and receive their Pixel Buds as early as December 26.”
Users can easily control calls and audio with the help of Pixel Buds earphones. They can also access Google Assistant with the touch of the right earbud, eliminating the need to look at the phone.
With Google Assistant, Pixel Buds users can get directions, be alerted of upcoming calendar events and also have read messages aloud to them.
The earphones also provide up to five hours of listening time with a single charge, while the "pocket-sized" charging case holds multiple charges for 24 hours of listening time, said the company.
In addition to this, Pixel users who pair up with the Pixel Buds can get real-time translation for 40 languages which include Chinese, Tamil, Japanese and Korean.
By using the built-in microphone, the earphones are able to capture audio and subsequently play the translated version in the user's ears.
