The recently released Galaxy S24 series opened up new possibilities to connect across cultures with the groundbreaking power of Galaxy AI. You can break down language barriers — all thanks to the secure on-device AI.


And now, with its latest updates, the Galaxy Buds series is making these smart features even more seamless.


By introducing a range of hands-free, AI-powered features, Galaxy Buds’ upgrades not only put you at the centre of a crystal-clear sound experience – they also connect you to the heart of the Samsung ecosystem. Whether paired with the Galaxy S24 series, the Galaxy Book4 series, Samsung TVs and more, the all-new convenient and intelligent capabilities of the Galaxy Buds help you better tune in to the world around you.


Barrier-Free Communication With Galaxy Buds


Tired of feeling lost in the translation during conversations? The Galaxy S24 series’ real-time translation features let you talk to anyone[1], anywhere and this barrier-free communication gets even better with Galaxy Buds.


Interpreter: Interpreter enhances communication by providing real-time translation on your Galaxy S24 series. When paired with Galaxy Buds, they further optimise the feature by separating sound during conversation. You can listen to translations through your earbuds, while the other person hears through your phone speaker, helping you to focus better on the conversation and eliminating the need to pass your device back and forth. Plus, you can effortlessly swap the order of speech during the conversation by simply tapping on the buds, without having to manually adjust the order with your phone.



Enhanced Connectivity With the Samsung Ecosystem

The latest Galaxy Buds updates not only let you dial into richer and more immersive sound, but they also connect you seamlessly across Samsung devices.


Auracast: Last year, Samsung introduced Auracast for Samsung Smart TVs on the Galaxy Buds2 Pro —transforming your TV[2] into shared radio station that can be broadcast across multiple Buds. Now, with the latest update, this feature is coming to phones[3] including the Galaxy S24 series.


360 Audio: The best audio places users in the centre of the action, and 360 Audio delivers surrounding sound from all directions. Previously supported on phones, tablets and PCs, 360 Audio will now be available for TVs[4], providing a cinema-like experience at home. Galaxy Buds will also be able track your head movement to create a truly immersive soundscape.


Auto Switch: Say you’re watching your Samsung TV with your Galaxy Buds and receives a call. Auto Switch automatically shifts the connection to your Galaxy phone and then switches back when the call ends. Thanks to the latest update, Samsung is extending this feature to PCs[5] including the Galaxy Book4 series, enabling you to conveniently enjoy premium sound across Samsung devices.


The Future Is Loud and Clear

In addition to the latest Galaxy AI feature update, this software update for enhanced connectivity will be made progressively available on Galaxy Buds2 Pro, Buds2 and Buds FE, starting in late February.[6] Samsung will continue evolving the Galaxy Buds series to deliver intelligent, best-in-class and seamlessly connected sound — anytime, anywhere and with every connection.
