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

Google adds new gestures and pairing features to Pixel Buds

Despite significant flaws, I liked them quite a lot in my review, but plenty across tech media did not. You can now manually turn on or off your Pixel Buds by triple-tapping on the right earbud.

We're adding three highly-requested features with the latest update that is beginning to roll out today. The Google Pixel Buds are receiving two new gestures for easier usability and music controls. Before it was a bit of a chore to move the Pixel Buds connection from one device to the next. That can be changed now, reassigning the double-tap feature to skip the track of music you're listening to. Anything you can do on your phone through the Assistant, you can with the Pixel Buds - so long as they're connected to your phone, anyway. You'll need to turn that on in the Google Assistant application on your phone though. Just select the Bluetooth menu on whatever device you've previously paired the Pixel Buds with and you can select them to connect to again.

Mikel Arteta to Arsenal: Bookies suspend betting on next Gunner's boss
We'll retweet the best scores, if you don't give answers away - and please challenge some pals while you're at it. Ta! " I have no offer ", said Emery. "Possibilities open up that can be concrete or not".

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

For those unfamiliar, the Google Pixel Buds are the official Google-branded wireless earbuds. 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. As early as later today, users will find updates in the Google Play app store.
