Do Airpods Work with Android? Guide to Connect Airpods to Android
Chances are you’ve seen how iPhone users double-flex on Android peasants with their exclusive Airpods. This flex of superiority grants you access to the iPhone club, which is only for the wealthiest pure-blood elites of our world. These wireless headphones are compatible with all of your luxury Apple devices…and they also work on Android! That is also true for Airpods 2 and Airpods Pro, they all work on Android–once you pair them, you can even use play/pause control by double-tapping an Airpod.
Do Airpods work with Android?
Yes! Airpods work great with any Android phone that has Bluetooth, just as they would with an iPhone. Here is how you do it.
Android Airpod Compatibility: Pairing with Android
- Place your Airpods into pairing mode by holding down the button on the Airpods case. Wait until the LED light turns white. This means you’re in pairing mode.
- On your Android phone, open your Bluetooth menu and select “pair new device”.
- Wait for the Airpods to show up in the list and connect to them.
That’s all there is to it. Airpods work with Android the same way they work with any Apple device and it’s great to see Airpods being compatible with Android because they work so well together.
Customize AirPod controls on Android
You might be aware that you can customize the controls on the AirPods, like double tapping to play/pause or skip tracks. How do you customize AirPod controls on Android? Easy–just connect AirPods first to any iOS device like an iPad or iPhone (don’t worry, you can just borrow any iOS device as this won’t permanently change any settings). Then go to:
- Setting app in iOS
- Tape the “i” next to AirPods
- Select your single and double-tap shorcuts!
That’s it, and the changes will be saved into your AirPods forever so you can disconnect from the iOS device and not need to worry about it again.
