As noted above, the software update for the wireless headphones is rolling out today, so keep an eye out.
One of the complaints levied at the devices was a lack of controls and customizable gestures. Now, you can set double-tap to skip to the next track.
By default, a double tap gets Google to read your notifications out loud; the new function is definitely something I'd use more often.
Finally, Google has made it easier to switch between Bluetooth devices.
Triple tap: Pixel Buds can now be manually turned on or off by triple-tapping on the right earbud.
One easy switch: To switch your Pixel Buds connection between your phone and computer, select your Pixel Buds from the Bluetooth menu of the desired device.
Google Pixel Buds let you do a lot with just a quick touch.
Maybe I'm being too picky, but I wish on/off were active quadruple-tap. The new gestures come in handy when one is using the Pixel Buds with their Pixel or another Android smartphone that has Google Assistant installed.
We're adding three highly-requested features with the latest update that is beginning to roll out today.
