Three, two, one: New ways to control Google Pixel Buds

Google’s Pixel Buds finally let you skip tracks with a double tap Google adds new gestures and pairing features to Pixel Buds

Google's Pixel Buds are... divisive. 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. Some annoyances in the user experience meant I eventually stopped using mine over some of my other headphones, but a new update rolling out addresses some of the headphone's biggest annoyances.

Double tap: Until now, double tapping let you hear notifications as they arrived on your phone. The Google Pixel Buds are receiving two new gestures for easier usability and music controls. You can now manually turn on or off your Pixel Buds by triple-tapping on the right earbud. You can turn them back on with the same gesture. You can still use voice commands to skip songs if you wish. The first is related to Bluetooth pairing between different devices, which is now easier and faster: to switch from one device to another, simply select the Buds from the Bluetooth menu of the second device, and the earphones will automatically disconnect from the first.

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).

The update is starting its rollout today and should be available for everyone by early next week assuming everything goes well.
