Google's Pixel Buds Get Track Skipping, Better Bluetooth Device Switching

Google's Pixel Buds Get Track Skipping, Better Bluetooth Device Switching

Today, Google begins rolling out an update to address a couple of those things. Today, Google is rolling out a number of new features to Pixel Buds, including new double and triple tap gestures, as well as the ability to easily switch between devices.

The first new addition is the ability to manually turn Pixel Buds on/off with a triple tap on the right earbud. There will also be the double tap which previously was used to let users hear new notifications.

Google just updated is Pixel Buds so that they respond to more gestures. There was no way to skip tracks without summoning the Google Assistant, for instance.


Lastly, Pixel Buds now work better when paired to multiple devices. Finally, your Pixel Buds will switch sound sources much more graciously: simply select them from your Bluetooth menu of any device and they'll drop the current connection and switch to the new one. This is useful if you don't want them to start playing music accidentally - something the headphones were prone to when handling thanks to the large touch-sensitive area.

The Google Pixel Buds are among the most curious launched recently by the Mountain View company accessories, which wanted to jump into the world of wireless headsets in an innovative and original way.
