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

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

The hardware shop will sell Google Pixel 2 smartphones, Google Home and Google Home Mini smart speakers, Pixel Buds, Daydream View VR headsets and a variety of customizable smartphone cases. Additionally, if listening to music, you can change the double-tap to allow you to skip tracks (thank, God!) instead of checking for notifications. Today, Google begins rolling out an update to address a couple of those things. Your Pixel Buds will disconnect from the device you were using and connect to the new one. There was no way to skip tracks without summoning the Google Assistant, for instance.

In an announcement on its blog, Google has revealed several new ways that users can interact with their Pixel Buds. 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.

Wildlife officers kill bear suspected of attacking girl
A bear that was involved in an attack on a girl in Colorado was tracked down and killed, according to reports. Wildlife agents were hunting for the bear with tracking hounds and had set traps to catch it.

First up, you can triple-tap the right earbud to turn your Pixel Buds off or on, something Google says users have been requesting.

Still, it's a welcome update - one that might me make start using the Pixel Buds more often. You'll need to turn that on in the Google Assistant application on your phone though. The update rolls out beginning today and should be available to most users by early next week.
