The exclusive Google Pixel Bud real-time translation feature appears to no longer be an exclusive as it is now rolling out to all Assistant-enabled headphones on all Android smartphones.

The Pixel Buds did not make the same impact on the market that Apple’s Airpods did, however, their instant translate feature drew a lot of attention during the Made by Google event last year.

An update was spotted on the Pixel Buds’ Support page which now reads: “Google Translate is available on all Assistant-optimized headphones and Android phones” where it used to say “Google Translate on Google Pixel Buds is only available on Pixel phones.”googlepixel Google Real Time Translation Feature On All Assistant Enabled Headphones

Previously, the feature required a Pixel or Pixel 2 phone, but should now be available on all android phones and Assistant-enabled headphones.

There’s been a huge increase in Assistant-enabled headphones released in the past 12 months, including models from Bose, LG, JBL, Sony, and more.

Also, reportedly, this new feature will even work on the USB-C Pixel Bud style earbuds included in the Pixel 3/3 XL box.

The translations will not be perfect, as anyone who has used Google Translate will be aware there is a lack of interpretation and more just direct translation, however, it can definitely be a benefit to users.google assistant Google Real Time Translation Feature On All Assistant Enabled Headphones
