Google wants to make it easier to create Google Assistant powered earbuds, so it has teamed up with Qualcomm to create chipsets that can help make the Assistant always accessible, making pairing with earbuds a more simplified process. DesignEdge’s industrial design expertise and manufacturing know-how was implemented in the development of the Qualcomm Smart Headset Development Kit for Google Assistant making it dead simple for companies to implement features into their own earbuds. Available as a reference design from Qualcomm and Google demonstrating how earbuds can be built with the chips inside. The Google and Qualcomm’s technology synergy means the chips enable access to the Google Assistant on your phone from your earbuds, connecting to Interpreter Mode, where Assistant can translate languages real time as well as Find My Accessory.
