Three, two, one: New ways to control Google Pixel Buds

Three, two, one: New ways to control Google Pixel Buds

We saw improvements to the Google Assistant, Gmail and, of course, the release of Android P Developer Preview 2.

Google's controversial Pixel Buds are picking up a new function update, with Google announcing new controls and easier pairing are coming to the earbuds.

Google Pixel Buds let you do a lot with just a quick touch. They're obviously primarily for listening to music, but they also support the Google Assistant and the wide range of features it offers too. Previously, you had to disconnect the Pixel Buds from the first device and then open it in the next one. You can now manually turn on or off your Pixel Buds by triple-tapping on the right earbud.

Easy switching: Finally, you will be able to quickly switch your paired devices with the Pixel Buds. As for the second, it's one many will feel a sense of familiarity to when it comes to earphones with a pause/play button. That'll no longer be an issue with today's update: You can set a double tap on the right earbud to skip tracks. You can still use a voice command to skip tracks, even with this new gesture enabled.

During I/O 2018, the Google app gained the ability to customize what notifications get sent to Assistant headphones.

Now, you can simply select the Pixel Buds on the new device's Bluetooth menu and the headphones will automatically switch sources.
