Almost a year after the official announcement, the second-gen Google Pixel Buds are now finally available in more color options. During the Made by Google event in October 2019, Google launched the Pixel Buds alongside the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones.
The company mentioned its first-ever truly wireless earbuds (TWS) will be sold in Oh So Orange, Clearly White, Quite Mint, and Almost Black color options. In April this year, the Pixel Buds went on sale for the first time but only came in Clearly White color option. According to 9to5Google, Walmart is currently the only retailer to offer the Pixel Buds in new color options.
Almost Black Pixel Buds now on sale through Walmart
The users can order the Pixel Buds in Almost Black color through Walmart and the delivery date is set for this Friday. As of now, no other retailer is taking orders for these new color options. While all the three new colors are listed on BestBuy, the product is still mentioned as coming soon.
Interestingly, Google's own website is yet to update the Pixel Buds listing with these new color options. More importantly, not every country will get the Pixel Buds in all the colors. Google will sell its earbuds in all four colors only in the US. Both Japan and Canada will get the Pixel Buds in Clearly White, Quite Mint, and Almost Black colors.
Oh So Orange color could be exclusive to the US
In the UK, the earbuds will be available in Clearly White and Almost Black colors. As of now, the other markets will only get the Clearly White Pixel Buds. Looks like the Oh So Orange Pixel Buds will be exclusive to the US customers. Still, the Pixel Buds are only limited to very few markets.
With the Pixel 4a launch, Google also made the Pixel Buds available in Japan. We also expect the Pixel Buds to make its debut in India alongside the Pixel 4a in October. In the US, Google's TWS earbuds are still retailing for $179.99.
The Pixel Buds will compete with the likes of Apple AirPods Pro and Microsoft Surface Earbuds. With the Pixel Buds, Google is also offering hands-free Google Assistant support. Additionally, the interchangeable ear tips will provide a secure and comfortable fit.
While the buds alone provide 5 hours of music playback, the overall battery life with the wireless charging case will be up to 24 hours. Moreover, the Pixels Buds are also water and sweat resistant for using them during the workouts.
