Oppo Enco X, Oppo Enco Air, and Oppo Enco Play TWS (true wireless stereo) earbuds are slated to receive brand-new features. Oppo will be rolling out a new software update to some Oppo Enco-branded TWS earphones next month. The Chinese consumer electronics company brought the Oppo Enco Buds into the Indian market back in September. Despite carrying an affordable price tag, the earbuds offered sufficiently good features.
The Enco Buds earbuds were touted as entry-level pairs of TWS earbuds that competed with similar products from popular brands such as Xiaomi, Realme, and OnePlus. There’s a cutthroat competition in the congested budget audio segment. As a result, leading manufacturers ensure that their earbuds are easy on the pocketbook, and boast an impressive array of features. Therefore, Oppo is gearing up for the rollout of the latest firmware updates for the older Enco TWS earphones.
Oppo Enco X, Enco Air & Enco Play TWS Earphones Get New Features
The upcoming software update will include features that are currently available on the Enco Free 2, as well as the Enco Free 2i. Taking to the official Oppo Smart Life Weibo account, the company announced that the popular Double-Tap Camera Control feature from the Enco Free2 and Enco Free2i will be available on previously launched Enco Models. The Enco Free 2 were the first earbuds from Oppo to come with the aforesaid feature. The Double-Tap Camera Control will be one of the most notable features.

Furthermore, the Personalised Sound Boost feature is compatible with devices that run ColorOS, or the Android 6.0 operating system or later.
Aside from that, the feature even works with iOS-based devices. If you are using a phone that doesn’t run ColorOS, you’d need to download and install the HeyTap app to access the personalized feature.
