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

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

Google I/O 2018 saw a number of cool new announcements from the company which related to all of their products.

Google just updated is Pixel Buds so that they respond to more gestures. This is a long-awaited feature for heavy music listeners as speaking to Assistant was previously the only way to jump to the next song. You can now manually turn on or off your Pixel Buds by triple-tapping on the right earbud.

Google says that this update is starting to roll out today and should arrive on Pixel Buds everywhere by next week.

Eagles' Jay Ajayi Sued For Allegedly Trashing Mansion After Super Bowl
According to TMZ Sports , Ajayi and his friend were specifically told by the owner of the place that parties were not allowed. And now he's facing a $25,000 lawsuit that he claims is bogus, the gossip site reported.

These are small but interesting tools to manage even smarter these earphones with a very particular air, which we hope will be supported for a long time by Google. You can continue to use a Google Assistant voice command to skip tracks, even if you assign two taps to the "next" track feature. To setup this new feature, head to the Pixel Buds settings within the Google Assistant app on your phone and enable double-tap to skip to the next track. You can turn them back on with the same gesture.

Finally, Google has made it easier to switch between Bluetooth devices. All you have to do is choose the Pixel Buds on the device you want to stream from (provided you have paired both up in the past), and they'll disconnect from the device they're now connected to and start streaming from the new one.
