Updates bring new and innovative connectivity features found on Galaxy Buds+ to take your music wherever you go

LONDON, UK – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced that it is bringing new connectivity features to Galaxy Buds through a new software update. Previously available on Galaxy Buds+, the features allow Galaxy Buds users to now go completely wireless and take their music with them – whether it’s on a run, at your workspace or around your home.


Here’s a look at how these new features will enable you to do more with your Galaxy Buds.


Easily Pair Galaxy Buds with Your PC

With Microsoft Swift Pair feature, you can easily pair your Galaxy Buds to your Windows 10-based PC [1]. This allows you to utilise Galaxy Buds’ innovative sound quality on work-related tasks, such as remote video meetings, or listening to the music that helps you power through the workday. With the addition of Swift Pair compatibility, Galaxy Buds join Galaxy Buds+ to support multiple pairing experiences across mobile and PC devices[2], giving you the freedom to easily connect to, and switch between, your favourite devices.


Tune In, or Out, of the World Around You

With this update, and for the first time on Galaxy Buds, you can now experience Ambient Sound[3] automatically. By simply putting your Buds on, you can now hear your surroundings and remain aware of the world around you, even when you’re watching movies or listening to your favourite tunes with the volume up. In addition, you can now experience Ambient Sound even with only one earbud in, giving you more options of how you tune in, or tune out, of your surrounding environment.


Instantly Listen to Your Personalised Playlist with a Single Press

Spotify users can now instantly listen to personalised music on their Galaxy Buds with a single press. Through a simple ‘Tap & Hold’ gesture, users can launch Spotify and start listening to music where ever you left off[4]. Not feeling it? Tap and hold again and Spotify will recommend playlists just for you so you can effortlessly discover your new favourite song through your Galaxy Buds. With these updates, you can start playing your personal soundtrack instantly, as soon as you need it – whether you’re starting a workout or starting your day.
