Google to prioritize Bluetooth fast pair in its next update

Author at TechGenyz Google
Google Bluetooth Fast Pair Update

Google will be releasing its next update which would give importance to its Bluetooth Fast Pair feature. What this means for the Bluetooth paired headphones is that Google will make it easier to monitor the battery life of wireless earbuds in Android.

A new interface, reportedly, is almost ready to be added in the Android Q so that Google could manage the Fast Pair-enabled headphones with device management features, Google Assistant settings, battery life information, and links to third-party management apps all in one place. As a competition to Apple’s quick AirPods pairing, in 2017 Google had released the Fast Pair technology.

Google’s technology uses Bluetooth Low Energy and an Android phone’s location to automatically discover Bluetooth accessories in close proximity and a single tap connects the device to the Bluetooth device. Google’s blog post which announced such an update, wrote, “As True Wireless Stereo (TWS) headphones continue to gain momentum in the market and with users, it is important to build system-wide support for TWS. Later this year, TWS headsets with Fast Pair will be able to broadcast individual battery information for the case and buds. This enables features such as case open and close battery notifications and per-component battery reporting throughout the UI.”

The Android Truly Wireless headphones which support the fast pairing would be able to show individual battery life data both for the case and each of the earbuds. While opening or closing the case, the information will be shown in a pop-up notification which would indicate the battery life.

Google’s updated Fast Pair headphones would also start appearing in Google’s Find My Device app so that the option of unpairing or ringing the missing buds is incorporated in it. Google spokesperson has confirmed that the new features would reach all the Fast Pair-enabled headphones including the Google Pixel Buds, Bose’s QuietComfort 35 II, JBL Live 220BT, 400BT and other existing headphones. Google has not given a particular time for the release of Android Truly Wireless headphones update, but has mentioned that it would available “later this year.”
