Is Alphabet Inc (GOOGL) Working On Smart Headphones?

Is Google Building Voice Assisted Smart Headphones?

Ask it questions. Tell it to do things. The upcoming Google smart headphones will rival the Apple AirPods.

Another notable addition to the latest version of the app pertains to its Home Control section for the Google Assistant which now boasts Scenes and Groups tabs, whereas Google also improved the app's ability to edit and share screenshots.

The code has two similar lines within it that says to hear notifications, press the Google Assistant button, while another says to press the top button to hear notifications.

Traces of the new product, code-named Bisto, first surfaced in April in the Google app for Android.

"We think these new capabilities will help power the next-generation on-device speech processing, visual search, augmented reality, and more", Android chief engineer Dave Burke said at the time. "It's your own personal Google, always ready to help".

SC couple names their baby 'Eclipse'
All babies born at the Greenville hospital on the day of the eclipse were given special onesies to commemorate the event. Employees of the medical institution presented them with a bodysuit with the words " total solar Eclipse ".

We also know that Bisto headphones will be able to listen to voice commands and play back notifications (with reply). Since the source code refers to Google's proprietary software, it may be possible the tech giant may come up with its own line of headphones.

Finally, they'll be able to be updated over the air (OTA) - just like your smartphone.

There is no information on the release date of the Google Bisto headphones.

But even as that product failed, it now seems that Google has made a decision to take on the idea and it might just work, thanks to Google Assistant integration. Instead, input is being triggered by physically pressing a button on the left earcup. Speculations are rife that the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 smartphones would be unveiling in October this year. For starters, Google is home to one of the most well-funded research and development teams of the planet. The most talked about hardware event in Silicon Valley will also launch new Pixel phones, a Chromebook Pixel, and a smart Home speaker.
