Digging through the code of the Google 7.10 app, 9to5Google discovered clear references to Google headphones. As things stand right now, Google Lens support mostly comes down to simple text recognition functionalities.
Following that coding, it is revealed that users will be able to hear your notifications and reply to notifications verbally. This particular feature has yet to be distributed on a global level but will presumably become more widely available shortly, with its latest version already looking like a almost finished product.
The code has two similar lines within it that says to hear notifications, press the Google Assistant button, while another says to press the top button to hear notifications. Instead, they appear to be over-the-ear devices with external buttons that can perform a variety of functions (think accepting calls, skipping songs, and the like). Most importantly, according to the report, these headphones would be capable of getting over-the-air software updates.

If Google headphones are indeed on the way, you can likely expect a first glimpse very soon. Also, it is not known how much the Google Assistant enabled earphones would be costing.
But even as that product failed, it now seems that Google has chose to take on the idea and it might just work, thanks to Google Assistant integration.
Last year Google announced the then-all-new Pixel family in October, so it might be best to mark your calendars now.
Now, there's nothing in the code to confirm that Bisto is launching alongside the Pixel 2 phones this fall. For starters, Google is home to one of the most well-funded research and development teams of the planet.
