Samsung Galaxy S24 series was launched with a range of Galaxy AI features, and some of these capabilities are now coming to select Samsung Galaxy wireless earphones. The smartphone series was launched in January and comprises the standard Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra. In an announcement on Tuesday, the South Korean tech giant revealed that it is rolling out an over-the-air (OTA) update that will add the capabilities of its artificial intelligence-powered Galaxy AI features to the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2, Galaxy Buds 2 Pro, and Galaxy Buds FE.
These Samsung Galaxy Buds models will be able to use the live translate feature and the AI-based interpreter feature. Users will be able to see real-time translations of calls on the smartphone screen while speaking through connected earphones. Additionally, now even when using the Samsung Galaxy Buds, users will be able to take advantage of the AI-powered interpretation that translates speech between two individuals. This will eliminate the need to hand the other person the phone after speaking and will help save time and hassle.
The tech giant has also announced a cashback or upgrade offer on the Galaxy Buds. Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro gets a discount of Rs. 6,000, whereas Buds 2 and Buds FE get Rs. 5,000 and Rs. 3,000, respectively.
