Google updates Pixel Buds with support for new gestures

It will then switch devices to the new one. Now, you can set double-tap to skip to the next track.

Double tap: Until now, double tapping let you hear notifications as they arrived on your phone.

Finally, Google has made it easier to switch between Bluetooth devices.

The last update is for easier pairing with the ability to simply go to the Bluetooth menu of any device you've paired with previously and select Pixel Buds to have them automatically switch to the new device. You can now manually turn on or off your Pixel Buds by triple-tapping on the right earbud. Starting today, Pixel Buds owners will be able to take advantage of two new gestures. This is useful if you don't want them to start playing music accidentally - something the headphones were prone to when handling thanks to the large touch-sensitive area.

Maybe I'm being too picky, but I wish on/off were active quadruple-tap.

Still, it's a welcome update - one that might me make start using the Pixel Buds more often.

We're adding three highly-requested features with the latest update that is beginning to roll out today.
