The Pixel Buds are coming here and you would expect that they’re close given that today they have landed on the US Google Store. While we haven’t yet heard officially when we can buy the Buds in Australia, the app being available here is a great sign.
The app itself will only let you look at the pairing page for now, as it needs a pair of Pixel Buds to function. Once you do have a pair connected, there’s the usual host of features you’d expect to see along with a couple specific for the Pixel Buds:
- Check battery levels
- Learn how to use touch controls
- Turn on/off Adaptive Sound
- Turn on/off in-ear detection
- Ring your earbuds to help find them
- Control your Assistant and spoken notifications
- Get tips and support
As detailed earlier today the Pixel Buds are available in Clearly White on the US Google Store but nowhere else. More colours are coming to the US “soon” and various colours to various other countries and regions in the “coming months”. In the meantime you can grab the app and be prepared for when they do actually drop here in Australia.
There are exciting times ahead with new Google goodies just around the corner, these being far more functional — on paper — than the previous generation. Perhaps it may be time for me to go back to Google and grab a new Pixel device and Pixel Buds.
Would you buy Pixel Buds from Google or would you prefer to buy from a dedicated audio company?
