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

Google adds new gestures and pairing features to Pixel Buds

And, it allows you to control your audio too-just swipe forward or backward to control volume and tap to play or pause your music.

The Google Pixel Buds are among the most curious launched recently by the Mountain View company accessories, which wanted to jump into the world of wireless headsets in an innovative and original way. They're called triple tap, double tap, and one-easy switch. This double-tap gesture now prompts your notifications to be read aloud, but you can switch this to skip songs via your Pixel Buds' settings in the Google Assistant app on your phone. There was no way to skip tracks without summoning the Google Assistant, for instance.

By default, a double tap gets Google to read your notifications out loud; the new function is definitely something I'd use more often.

Little boy crashes marriage proposal by peeing behind dad's back
Disaster-recovery worker Kevin connected with sociology student Allyssa on Facebook after discovering they had mutual friends. However, one man's simple proposal went viral - not for his love story, but for his little son's sneaky act.


Lastly, Pixel Buds now work better when paired to multiple devices.

One easy switch: To switch your Pixel Buds connection between your phone and computer, select your Pixel Buds from the Bluetooth menu of the desired device. 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.
