The Google Pixel Buds A (or’A-Series’ as they are named) might happen to be confirmed twice over by Google itself — in a supposed tweet (already deleted) from an official accounts, as well as on its German website, adding more support to the chance that a new, less expensive form of the true wireless earbuds are now coming.
The tweet came from the official @Android accounts, and was allegedly live for all of 10 minutes before it had been summarily taken down. It refers to’The new Pixel Buds A-Series’ and mentions’one-tap Bluetooth pairing with the updated Fast Pair experience.’
The tweet also reveals a picture of this Buds A-Series (like in the attached image above), which shows true wireless earbuds and a recharging instance that looks identical to the previous Google Pixel Buds (even though in an all-white design with white trimming ). But besides the appearance and the’Fast Pair’ attribute, the tweet doesn’t show anything else about the new earbuds.

This in itself is notable, however the Pixel Buds A-Series was also allegedly viewed in a Google search — specifically, the name itself was cited in suggested results under the German Google shop, according to German tech site Cashys Blog. While we could not find exactly the exact same, suggesting it might have been taken offline, it is still somewhat more official support for the Google earbuds.
Google Pixel Buds A: cheap authentic wireless earbuds?
What little we’ve learned about the Google Pixel Buds A suggests they’ll seem like the Google Pixel Buds that started this past year, even though they may get a lower price tag when keeping features like touch controllers for adjusting music playback and obtaining Google Assistant.
We’d originally heard a rumor that the Buds A would start in April, but as that date has come and gone, we’d expect them to be announced alongside the Google Pixel 5a through Google IO 2021, that runs from May 18-20, using a mid-2021 discharge date.
