Leaked Images Show Google’s Baywolf Headphones with Google Assistant
Google’s hardware expansion began last year with the Pixel smartphones. Last October, Google introduced the Google Pixel and Pixel XL, Google Home, Google Daydream and Google Wi-Fi. This year Google intends to release headphones too! The first images of Baywolf Headphones, which is the code-name for these gen-next Google headphones have leaked.
These Google headphones would feature Google Assistant built-in in them. A teardown of the Google Assistant app for the iOS gives us our first look at these headphones. The image has been titled baywolf-oobe-image.png. Baywolf is likely the name for these over-the-ear Google headphones. These images come via 9to5Google.
To clear things up, for now it seems that the Baywolf Headphones are the codename for the Google ‘Bisto’ headphone devices. These headphones feature three buttons on the earcup on one side and a single button on the other side. The three buttons are most likely to be that of increase volume, play/pause and decrease volume. The lone button on the other side is most likely the one that would trigger the Google Assistant.
In addition to this image, another set of images have also been spotted which give us an insight into the logo for the headphones along with the Google Assistant.
The image above gives us a hint at what these Baywolf headphones would be capable of doing. The image shows music and messages, as well as the assistant icon.
Interestingly, some Reddit users have spotted that the design and button layout of these Baywolf headphones look quite similar to the Bose QC35 headphones which also come with a button on the left and three buttons on the right cup.
There have been a number of Bose headphones which come with these three buttons to control the volume and the playback but never before have we seen this additional button which is on the left. If these theories are to be believed Bose and Google are likely to partner up for Baywolf headphones. Stay tuned with us for more details as Google holds their 2017 hardware event on the 5th of October.
