Yet another example of Google's impressive artificial intelligence tech, Google Lens is a new "smart" camera feature built around object identification. Essentially, when GL launches later this year, you'll be able to point the Pixel 2's camera at something and it will be able to automatically identify it and pull up relevant info on the screen (think landmarks, signs, text, food, movie posters, art, etc.).
Unfortunately for traditional headphone lovers, Google followed a cue from Apple and ditched the 3.5mm headphone jack in the Pixel 2. The good news is that its brand new wireless earbuds perform some incredible functions. Most notably, the aptly named Google Pixel Buds (which cost an extra $159), are able to do real-time translation in 40 different languages. For instance, if you command "Help me speak Italian," everything you say subsequently in English will be automatically translated via the phone's speakers. Then, when the other person replies in Italian, their response will be translated into English in your ear.
