Google announced a slew of new tech at its San Francisco event on October 4, with one of the more interesting products being the Google Pixel Buds.

Not only do these earbuds connect wirelessly with Google's latest smartphones, they also connect to Google Assistant, Google's version of Siri. Through Google Assistant, the earbuds can translate up to 40 different languages in real time, fast enough to hold a conversation.

On stage during Google's event, the Google Pixel Buds seamlessly translated Swedish into English. However, it's still unclear how they will perform in the real world with background noise and different accents to take into account.

The earbuds could be a true game-changer when it comes to traveling foreign countries and is the latest attempt to bridge cultures and make the world a more inclusive place, wherever you may be.

The Google Pixel Buds cost $159, have a battery life of 5 hours and come with a charging port in their carrying case.

Check out how they work in the video from Google's keynote below.
