  • Google Pixel Buds add double-tap to skip track and more

The rollout for the new features begins today and should hit everyone "by early next week", according to Google.

A couple of months ago, a rumor cropped up suggesting that Google was planning on adding a double-tap to skip a track for Pixel Buds, one of the more oft-requested features for the wireless in-ear headphones. You can still use a voice command to skip tracks, even with this new gesture enabled.

One of the complaints levied at the devices was a lack of controls and customizable gestures. For example, if you want to jump from your phone to computer, all you have to do is head into the Bluetooth menu on the device you want to connect to and choose the Pixel Buds. You'll need to turn that on in the Google Assistant application on your phone though.

The first of the two gestures will allow you to triple tap the right earbud to turn your Pixel Buds on or off.
