Google sends updates to its Pixel Buds

Google’s Pixel Buds have been in need of some improvements. The pair released last year and has received little treatment despite unanimous unfavorable reviews. Google is somewhat aware and now rolling out some upgrades that will add to the audio experience. Here’s what to expect.

If you are one of few out there who owns a pair of personal Pixel Buds, you’ll be delighted to know that an update is rolling out that brings music track skipping, something that should have been available since day one. Previously, the only way to skip a track was to ask the built-in Google Assistant to do so each and every time, which was a pain and took too long. Now, users can do it more easily using taps.

A double tap while listening to music will now skip a track. Three taps in a row on the right bud will turn on or off the system. This makes a lot more sense. In the future, I think it would be great if Google could implement different types of gestures for added functionality.

Another notable feature coming to Pixel Buds talked about in a recent blog post is the ability to more easily switch between Bluetooth devices. You can switch the device paired to the headphones without having to first disconnect, which saves the user some time. These upgrades don’t exactly make Pixel Buds awesome, just a little better than they were. Hopefully the rumored second model will be less expensive and pick up on some of the miscues by the first model to be better straight out of the box.

The update will reach everyone by next week and is already being received by some of our readers. If you’re unfamiliar with the update process, hit the source link below to learn more.
