Is Google Building Voice Assisted Smart Headphones?

Is Google making a pair of headphones with its virtual assistant built-in?

Google may be working on new smart headphones capable of running Google Assistant, according to 9to5 Google. This suggests that unlike Apple's AirPods, which wakes its own Siri assistant with a double-tap, Google is opting for a more physical approach somewhat like Samsung's "Bixby button" found on the Samsung Galaxy S8 - as well as possibly the upcoming Galaxy Note 8.

Additional lines in the app suggest that Bisto may not just be a simple pair of earbuds or anything similar to Apple's Airpods, but instead a pair of over-ear headphones with external buttons that offer access to a variety of functions.

Referred to as "Bistro" it would let individuals use their voice to hear and reply to notifications without having to physically type a reply. Press the Google Assistant button.

The data mining brought up the following code: "Your headphones have the Google Assistant". Firstly, the coding revealed that you'll be able to ask the headphones questions, give them commands and that they'll always be ready to help. The report also found a setup process as well as the ability for the headphones to receive OTA updates. "It's your own personal Google, always ready to help", the code reads. If the headphones are real, it's possible that they will either come with the phone, or that they'll be a separate gadget but launched at the same event as the new Pixel.

If Google headphones are indeed on the way, you can likely expect a first glimpse very soon.

The tech giant seems to be betting big on artificial intelligence (AI) as all the products are expected to run Google Assistant.

Last year Google announced the then-all-new Pixel family in October, so it might be best to mark your calendars now.
