It is no news that a more affordable pair of Google’s own earbuds, the Pixel Buds, is coming. Today, the new pair of earbuds called the Pixel Buds A was accidentally announced by the official Android Twitter account.
The now-deleted tweet showed the earbuds in white along with a Pixel phone with a dialog box on its screen. The tweet confirms that the Pixel Buds A has Fast Pair, a service that uses Bluetooth Low Energy and your device’s location feature to find compatible Bluetooth devices in range and allow you to connect to the Bluetooth device with just one tap.
Fast Pair will also register all connected Bluetooth accessories to your Google account which then syncs with all your Android devices connected to that account. It also has a Find My Device feature to help you find your lost Bluetooth accessory.
Seeing as Google deleted the tweet shortly after it sent it out, it is safe to assume that the device is not yet ready to launch. However, it is expected to arrive soon, maybe even later this month at Google I/O. The Pixel Buds A will come in multiple colors including green (with a white case), so if you don’t like the white version in the image above, don’t fret.
Considering Google used the phrase “Pixel Buds A-Series”, it is safe to say that this will be the first of a line of affordable pair of earbuds from Google just as the Pixel 3A launched as the first of Google’s affordable Pixel smartphone line.
