Samsung surpasses Google in integrating AI into its wireless earbuds, but there’s a caveat.

Samsung surpasses Google in integrating AI: Samsung has expanded its Galaxy AI features to the Samsung Galaxy S24 phones, and these features will also be extended to other Samsung devices—not only older handsets but also specific models of Galaxy Buds.

According to an email sent to users (reported by Android Authority), the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro, Galaxy Buds 2, and Galaxy Buds FE will receive some of the key Galaxy AI features through an over-the-air update currently being rolled out.

These features include Live Translation and Interpretation, enabling users to utilize their wireless earbuds for real-time conversations in foreign languages. It appears that the Babel fish, envisioned around 40 years ago in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, is now becoming a reality.

AI for the People

Just yesterday, news surfaced that Google is contemplating incorporating features from its Gemini AI model into headphones compatible with Google Assistant—headphones like the Google Pixel Buds Pro or the Sony WF-1000XM5, for instance. However, this information was gleaned from code discovered within the Google app for Android, rather than from any official announcement.

As Samsung’s AI features are currently being rolled out to compatible Galaxy Buds earbuds, it appears that Samsung has outpaced Google in integrating AI directly into users’ ears. Nonetheless, we shouldn’t anticipate Google to lag far behind, given its rapid deployment of new AI products, such as Google One AI Premium.

Next-generation AI is poised to become a focal point of smartphones and various other gadgets in the forthcoming years. While Apple may be trailing slightly in implementing these features, we anticipate iOS 18 to address this later in the year.

This development also prompts consumers to consider the inclusion of AI in future product purchases, such as the rumored Samsung Galaxy Buds 3 Pro: how much AI functionality is onboard, and how beneficial will it be?
