After iPhone, Google also removed the 3.5mm headphone jack on their upcoming handsets Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The 3.5mm headphone jack is a useful feature which is liked by many, but the question is why are the smartphone companies discontinuing this feature?
The giant search engine Google explained the reason as to why the jack is being removed. Mario Queiroz from Google stated that the company is planning to produce an all screen smartphone in which the 3.5mm headphone jack doesn’t go well with the design of the device.
Queiroz said “The primary reason [for dropping the jack] is establishing a mechanical design path for the future. We want the display to go closer and closer to the edge. Our team said, ‘if we’re going to make the shift, let’s make it sooner, rather than later’ Last year may have been too early. Now there are more phones on the market.”
Google has introduced ‘AirPods’ which are a pair of wireless headphones which is compatible with Pixel 2 handsets.
However, it was Google who had ridiculed Apple for killing the 3.5mm headphone jack in the iPhone 7 and now Google is following their footsteps.
