Google's Pixel Buds Get Track Skipping, Better Bluetooth Device Switching

Google adds new gestures and pairing features to Pixel Buds

You can now manually turn on or off your Pixel Buds by triple-tapping on the right earbud. Things like asking for your favorite playlist, making a call, sending a message or getting walking directions to whatever destination you want are done by simply tapping the right earbud. Some annoyances in the user experience meant I eventually stopped using mine over some of my other headphones, but a new update rolling out addresses some of the headphone's biggest annoyances. There was no way to skip tracks without summoning the Google Assistant, for instance. You can enable it within the Google Assistant app settings on your phone. You can continue to use a Google Assistant voice command to skip tracks, even if you assign two taps to the "next" track feature.
