Google's Pixel Buds finally let you skip tracks with a double tap


Google has announced its first ever Canadian pop-up shop at Toronto's Drake General Store.

Google just updated is Pixel Buds so that they respond to more gestures.

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.

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. 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.

Lastly, Pixel Buds now work better when paired to multiple devices. When you use Pixel Buds with your Pixel or other Android device with the Assistant, simply touch and hold the right earbud to ask for your favorite playlist, make a call, send a message or get walking directions to dinner. You'll need to turn that on in the Google Assistant application on your phone though. You can continue to use a Google Assistant voice command to skip tracks, even if you assign two taps to the "next" track feature.

Finally, Google has made it easier to switch between Bluetooth devices. Enter your email to be subscribed to our newsletter.
