Alongside many other products, at its event today Microsoft also announced the Surface Earbuds, thus joining the true wireless earbuds market, after its initial move in the audio space with the Surface Headphones from last year.
The Surface Earbuds have 8-hour battery life, and with the charging case you have two additional charges, which means that you’re covered for 24 hours in total. The earbuds support Android Fast Pair and Windows Swift Pair, and you control them by touch gestures or voice.
They have a directional dual mic array, and Spotify integration (though this hasn’t been detailed). You can also use them to dictate stuff into Microsoft Office 365, as well as advance PowerPoint slides by swiping, and translate stuff into 60+ languages.
The earbuds will be available later this year for $249.
