Google has some serious plans in store for its Pixel 3 launch

New Google Headphone Adapter

Google's official USB-C to 3.5mm headphone adapter has had a bit of a rollercoaster existence ever since it was unveiled after the company announced the headphone jack-less Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. It's an odd way to improve battery life, but if you're still carrying around headphone dongles in your pocket, this is probably worth the upgrade. On top of that, Google just sent out invites for a similar event in Paris, for the same date, which suggests Google has big plans for its Pixel 3 phones. I'd hate to imagine the markup on these things, but you can grab the updated version from Google's store directly below. In preserving with the listing, the $12 adapter affords 38% more playback time than the genuine mannequin and has a 53% enchancment on lumber-in latency. According to one version, Google decided that it would be more appropriate from a financial point of view to the two presentations than to take the journalists, it-editions from different countries in one place. As well as making a previously back-breaking 5.3g cable a feather-light 4.9g, Google has managed to improve its performance too. While it should be compatible with all devices, Google says it works best with Pixel smartphones and other devices running Android 9 Pie OS.


There was hubbub around the launch of the original adapter, which Google was hawking for an nearly insulting $20. It is possible to get them for a lot cheaper on Amazon India.
