Google may be readying its own smart headphones

Google HQ

Following the news that the company is working on a new Chromebook Pixel and a smaller version of the Google Home smart speaker - along with two new Pixel phones of course, fresh evidence suggests a pair of smart headphones, codenamed "Bisto", with Google Assistant built-in are being worked on too.

"Your headphones have the Google Assistant". The upcoming Google smart headphones will rival the Apple AirPods.

Hidden in the code of Google's latest app are several references to a project called "Bistro". The code dug up by 9to5Google also mentions the ability to hear and reply to notifications using the headphones, as well as dedicated buttons for launching Assistant.

Users could also ask Google Assistant questions as they now do with their phone or Google Home speaker. "It's your own personal Google, always ready to help". Finally, the Google Assistant panel now boasts a softer, more rounded design, whereas Google is also experimenting with allowing users to search the contents of the Recents tab, the teardown revealed.

The most notable string references Google Assistant, stating: "Your headphones have the Google Assistant". Instead, input is being triggered by physically pressing a button on the left earcup.

Lastly, the final coding shows that the headphones will receive over the air firmware updates and the setup process for the headphones.

The news comes from "a source familiar with the company's plans" who let the information slip to Android Police. For starters, Google is home to one of the most well-funded research and development teams of the planet.

Google's next major hardware product may be created to bring the company's smart assistant closer to your ears. The most talked about hardware event in Silicon Valley will also launch new Pixel phones, a Chromebook Pixel, and a smart Home speaker.
