Google is reportedly working on smart headphones which would use Google Assistant to function.

It seems that the Google Assistant enabled Bisto may run on Android Wear. 9to5Googlehas sifted through the evidence and found a number of references in the app's APK to a mystery product, codenamed "Bisto".

The teardown of the Google app build 7.9 also revealed the existence of a Quick Search Bar feature which the Mountain View, California-based company is developing for the system Notification Panel. Ask it questions. Tell it to do things. 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. But it's interesting to speculate. Nicknamed Bisto, they would let you hear and reply to notifications using your voice - you wouldn't have to reach for your phone to punch out a reply. There's not much else to glean from details scraped from the beta of an app, but there is a reference to a Google Assistant button on the left earcup, which suggests we're talking about over-ear headphones rather than earbuds. We'll have to keep our ears to the ground for future developments.

Allen posted several photos of the wreckage on his Twitter account, including images of the ship's anchor and bell. His team is now surveying the full site and plans to give a live tour of the wreckage in the coming weeks.


Google could be about to enter the audio market in a big way with a pair of headphones sporting smart capabilities akin to Apple's AirPods. Since the source code refers to Google's proprietary software, it may be possible the tech giant may come up with its own line of headphones.

There is no information on the release date of the Google Bisto headphones. Speculations are rife that the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 smartphones would be unveiling in October this year.

In addition, the headphones will most likely work while paired with a smartphone, similar to most Wi-Fi-only smartwatches.
