Last year Google launched the Pixel Buds, the company’s answer to the increasingly popular style of wireless headphones (or earbuds to be more accurate). Just like we’ve seen in other wireless earbuds, gesture control is one of the ways that users can interact with the devices, but now it looks like Google is introducing more commands.
In an announcement on its blog, Google has revealed several new ways that users can interact with their Pixel Buds. 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. There will also be the double tap which previously was used to let users hear new notifications.
However according to Google, users will now have the option of changing that to the ability to skip to the next track when listening to music. Google has also updated the pairing of the Pixel Buds where users can now switch between devices easily just by selecting it from the Bluetooth menu on the device you want to connect to.
Some of these features were actually hinted at a couple of months ago so it’s good to see that they will finally be here in the next week or so.
