Google updates Pixel Buds with support for new gestures

Google adds new gestures and pairing features to Pixel Buds

Google has just announced that it has made available new gestures that will allow Pixel Buds owners to control the earphones.

As noted above, the software update for the wireless headphones is rolling out today, so keep an eye out. There was no way to skip tracks without summoning the Google Assistant, for instance.

Triple tap: Pixel Buds can now be manually turned on or off by triple-tapping on the right earbud.

Wisconsin Students' Elaborate Senior Prank Earns Praise
You know a senior prank was good when even the local police department gives a special a shoutout for it. Senior pranks are a rite of passage for many high school students across America.

By default, a double tap gets Google to read your notifications out loud; the new function is definitely something I'd use more often. That can be changed now, reassigning the double-tap feature to skip the track of music you're listening to. Previously, you had to disconnect the Pixel Buds from the first device and then open it in the next one. Finally, your Pixel Buds will switch sound sources much more graciously: simply select them from your Bluetooth menu of any device and they'll drop the current connection and switch to the new one.

Google says that this update is starting to roll out today and should arrive on Pixel Buds everywhere by next week.
