Android are finally getting the Bluetooth audio switch | Digital Trends Spanish

The devices Android they are finally getting the audio change Bluetooth. After years of watching iOS users party from afar, Android owners can finally join the party and live a life of convenience. Now, you won’t have to constantly search through Bluetooth settings when using Fast Pair headphones and can go between your Android phone, tablet, or vice versa.

Fast Pair has long enabled Android users to quickly pair wireless headphones without messing with device settings. Now, Google is expanding Fast Pair to enable seamless device switching across multiple devices. Do you listen to music on your Android phone but want to switch to watching a movie on your Android tablet? With a pair of compatible headphones, they will now automatically switch between devices on their own. This has been a highly requested feature ever since it was introduced for iOS with Apple’s AirPods, so it’s nice to see Google putting the effort into creating its own version.

Unlike Apple’s audio switching features, the Android version won’t just be compatible with first-party devices. Google is obviously pushing the feature forward with the launch of the upcoming Pixel Buds Pro, which are scheduled to launch next week, but additional select headphones from Sony and JBL will also be supported. However, Google will prioritize its own devices first, as the feature won’t roll out to third-party headsets for a few weeks.

Google’s take on automatic device switching is pretty much what you’d expect from the feature: Your Bluetooth connection changes as new audio sources are introduced and prioritized. In the example provided by Google, this means that if you receive a notification on your phone while watching a video on your tablet, the connection will not switch to the phone because the video has priority. Audio priorities can be changed in settings.
