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

Instead of that gesture reading incoming notifications, it can now be set to skip tracks. Simply double tap the right earbud will skip the now playing song, so it's a great way to navigate through a playlist without needing to take out your phone. Today, Google begins rolling out an update to address a couple of those things.

Store visitors will get the opportunity to go hands-on with the tech in an interactive environment, alongside Google Assistant queries hidden throughout the store. Otherwise, you could put the Pixel Buds back in their case and restart the pairing process any time you wanted to listen to a music on a new device - say your laptop and your headphones. Your Pixel Buds will disconnect from the device you were using and connect to the new one. This comes in the form of new gestures, such as the triple tap on the right earbud that will let users turn the earbuds on or off. You can turn them back on with the same gesture. They're called triple tap, double tap, and one-easy switch. Finally, your Pixel Buds will switch sound sources much more graciously: simply select them from your Bluetooth menu of any device and they'll drop the current connection and switch to the new one. The update rolls out beginning today and should be available to most users by early next week.
