Google has released new updates to it’s Google Pixel Buds. Now you can trace and find them if you have misplaced them. They also have released a new feature to find more about the things happening around you. They have also added new features like Bass Boost, Sharing Detection, Attention Alerts and Translate, Transcribe and Transform your conversations.
Google Pixel Buds – Bass Boost
This is one of the most requested feature from the Pixel Buds community. Now you can enhance your bass directly in the Pixel Buds settings.
Google Pixel Buds – Sharing Detection
If you decide to share one of your earbuds with someone, you no longer have to sacrifice your volume preferences thanks to sharing detection. When on, sharing detection automatically detects when you’re sharing an earbud with someone and you can both individually swipe on your respective earbud to control your own volume. So whether you’re listening to music or watching a movie with a friend, you can seamlessly share your Pixel Buds.
Conversation & Transcribe Mode
Building on the helpfulness of Pixel Buds’ conversation mode translate feature, which helps when you’re talking back and forth with another person, the new transcribe mode lets you follow along by reading the translated speech directly into your ear, helping you understand the gist of what’s being said during longer listening experiences.
This feature is currently available for French, German, Italian and Spanish speakers to translate English speech. Note – Transcribe mode works best in a quiet environment where one person is speaking at a time. For example, simply say “Hey Google, ayúdame a entender inglés” to start listening, and optionally follow along on your phone screen to see the translated transcript.
This is an experimental feature that notifies you of important things happening around you. It lowers the volume of your content momentarily to alert you to what’s going on. Example – If your dog barks, baby cries or an emergency vehicle drives by with sirens ringing.
Find Google Pixel Buds
You can find your buds using one of the two features
- Ring my earbuds feature helps you to find your buds.
- Google has added an update to Find My Device that will show you the last known location of your Pixel Buds on a map even when they’re no longer connected to your Android phone.
