AirPods to get Live Listen feature in iOS 12 | TechCrunch:

After enabling the feature in the iPhone’s settings, users will be able to use their phones effectively as a directional mic. This means you can have AirPods in at a noisy restaurant with your iPhone on the table, for example, and the voice of whomever is speaking will be routed to your AirPods.

This is one of those features I’ll take for granted in 10 years. wow.
