This future Google technology will change the lives of Android users

The Fast Pair technology introduced by Google is excellent as it allows you to quickly pair your headphones with your Android phone. Best of all, paired devices are stored in your Google account and will pair with any other Android device as soon as you log into that phone.

Switching audio between headphones is about to get a whole lot easier thanks to Google

Now Google has decided to announce a new technology that uses the Fast Pair as a basis and can switch between audio from different devices based on your actions. The technology we are talking about takes into account different audio categories, such as a phone call, a notification or a multimedia playback.


“So, for example, if you’re watching a video on your tablet and you get a notification on your phone, your headset audio won’t switch to your phone. But if you get a phone call, your headset audio will switch,” Google explains on its blog.

Google also said a notification will appear on the second device after the switch, allowing you to switch back to the original device by simply tapping on it. Google also said that headphones with audio switching and multipoint support can connect to two Bluetooth devices at the same time.

For those wondering, the headphones that support audio switching are the Pixel Buds Pro, but the company said Sony and JBL headphones will also get the feature in the coming weeks. “Audio switching is available between Android devices to start with, with plans to expand to more of your favorite platforms and devices over time,” Google said.

So, it can be said that other devices will soon get the feature, which would be a useful thing. As someone who uses the same pair of headphones on a number of devices, the audio switching feature seems to be exciting and I can’t wait for other headphones to have access to it.
