Google Pixel Buds 2 are now available in Canada, the UK, and many more markets

It was all the way back in October 2019 when the 2nd-generation Pixel Buds were revealed at Google's big annual hardware event, which seems like such a long, long time ago now. It wasn't until April this year that customers in the US could get their hands on a pair, and until today there's been no availability outside the States.

Google's 2nd-gen Pixel Buds are now available to buy for $179

It's frustrating when a much-hyped tech product is announced months ahead of its eventual release, and it's something Google doesn't often do. Yet that's exactly what's happened with the second-gen Pixel Buds that were announced in October last year. All the other items from that event came out long ago, and now it's finally time for Google's true wireless earbuds to go on sale.
