Samsung Electronics is bringing new connectivity features to Galaxy Buds through a software update, available starting today.
Previously available on Galaxy Buds+, the features allow Galaxy Buds users to now go completely wireless.
The software update is available on smartphones running Android L OS or higher with more than 1.5GB RAM. It requires the latest version of the Galaxy Wearable app and the earbuds software.
Here’s a look at how these new features:
- Easily Pair Galaxy Buds with Your PC
With Microsoft Swift Pair feature, you can now more easily pair your Galaxy Buds to your Windows 10-based PC. This allows you to utilize Galaxy Buds’ sound quality on work-related tasks, such as remote video meetings, or listening to the music that helps you power through the workday. With the addition of Swift Pair compatibility, Galaxy Buds join Galaxy Buds+ to support multiple pairing experiences across mobile and PC devices, giving you the freedom to easily connect to, and switch between, your devices.
- Tune In, or Out, of the World Around You
With this update, and for the first time on Galaxy Buds, you can now experience Ambient Sound automatically. By putting your Buds on, you can now hear your surroundings and remain aware of the world around you, even when you’re watching movies or listening to tunes with the volume up. In addition, you can now experience Ambient Sound even with only one earbud in.
- Instantly Listen to Your Personalized Playlist with a Single Press
Spotify users can now instantly listen to personalized music on their Galaxy Buds with a single press. Through a simple ‘Tap & Hold’ gesture, users can launch Spotify and start listening to music where ever you left off. Tap and hold again and Spotify will recommend playlists just for you so you can discover your new favorite song through your Galaxy Buds.
