We knew the smartphones and the speakers connected with Google Assistant, it will soon count with the headphones. Multiple leaks mean that the QuietComfort 35 II from Bose will have a Google Wizard button. But we do not yet know exactly how the virtual assistant of Google will be integrated.
Released last year, the QuietComfort 35 was one of the best wireless headsets of the moment. He will soon be entitled to a successor, the QuietComfort 35 II. If its technical characteristics and design do not seem to change, it should however have a novelty of size: a Google Assistant button.
The information was confirmed by two leaks. The first comes from the promotional video above, which very clearly indicates the integration of Google Assistant on the headset. One can see in particular that the left atrium should indeed have a specific button that will make it possible to call the virtual assistant.
The site 9to5Google also could see the back of the box of the device. On the latter, you can see the words "Google Assistant built-in", which leaves no doubt about the functionality.
How will Bose integrate Google Assistant with its new headset?
Remains now to know how Google Assistant will be integrated into the headset. It is unclear whether the wizard will be directly integrated into the headset – in the manner of the connected speakers – or whether it will be dependent on the information sent by the smartphone. The advertisement, however, suggests that this button will control the music with the voice.
For the rest, it is difficult to know what improvements will be made to this QuietComfort 35 II. The autonomy of 20 hours is identical to that of the model of the last year and the design seems identical. If there are changes, they will surely be linked to the headphones and to the reduction of active and passive noise.
It is also not known when this helmet will be announced. With the integration of Google Assistant, it is likely that the QuietComfort 35 II will be announced on October 4, together with the new Google smartphones.
