Google’s Translation Headphones – Translate language into the ear of the listener

Google’s translation headphones

The aim of much new technology is to remove speech from the process of communication, so the excitement generated by Google’s in-ear headphones seems curiously anomalous claiming it can simultaneously translate the spoken language into the ear of the listener.

When humans fail in their translations, they are usually making some attempt to understand what it is they’re translating. The Earbuds will also include features that allow users to instantly ask questions by squeezing the bud. By connecting to Google Assistant, users will then hear answers to spoken questions, while the assistant can also alert users to incoming calls, texts or calendar events.
