Pixel Buds Pro will also be available in new colors, Bay and Porcelain, to match the Pixel 8 series and the Pixel Watch 2. The updates for Pixel Buds Pro include:

Clearer Voice Calls: Pixel Buds Pro use smart technology to enhance your phone calls. They support Bluetooth Super Wideband on Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, which makes your voice sound better. It also reduces background noise on the other end of the call.
