Google Pixel Buds pick up new control gestures and easier pairing

Adjust Comment Print

You can now manually turn on or off your Pixel Buds by triple-tapping on the right earbud. Since launch, users could only achieve the latter by placing the wearables into the complicated carrying case.

You'll notice that double tap is in there twice, that's because the action is actually configurable. Instead of that gesture reading incoming notifications, it can now be set to skip tracks. The new option is available by heading into Assistant device settings. "Your Pixel Buds will disconnect from the device you were using and connect to the new one", Google said on its blog.

Iran's Foreign Minister in China to rescue nuclear deal
Trump's move to ditch the nuclear deal has infuriated Washington's allies in Europe as well as China and Russian Federation . Mogherini said "the aim" is to see how Iran and the Europeans "can coordinate actions" in order to preserve the deal.

For those unfamiliar, the Google Pixel Buds are the official Google-branded wireless earbuds. Google has also updated the pairing of the Pixel Buds where users can now switch between devices easily just by selecting it from the Bluetooth menu on the device you want to connect to.

Furthermore, Google makes it easier to skip to the next track by double tapping on the right earbud.

Maybe I'm being too picky, but I wish on/off were active quadruple-tap.

Rocking a pair of Pixel Buds? A triple tap on many, if not most Bluetooth headphones lets you switch to the previous track, something you still can't do without invoking Google Assistant.

Tottenham player ratings: Spurs beat Leicester at their own game
Vardy then made it 4-4 as Mahrez timed his pass perfectly and Vardy smashed home his 20th goal of the PL season in style. Any Spurs fan who wouldn't have taken that in a season where the club were forced to play at a Wembley is a fool.

The rollout for the new features begins today and should hit everyone "by early next week", according to Google.
