Three, two, one: New ways to control Google Pixel Buds

Google’s Pixel Buds finally let you skip tracks with a double tap

Despite significant flaws, I liked them quite a lot in my review, but plenty across tech media did not. Today, Google begins rolling out an update to address a couple of those things. We saw improvements to the Google Assistant, Gmail and, of course, the release of Android P Developer Preview 2.

Finally, Google has made it easier to switch between Bluetooth devices. It will then switch devices to the new one.

During I/O 2018, the Google app gained the ability to customize what notifications get sent to Assistant headphones.

The Gavitt Tipoff Games schedule begins on Tuesday, Nov. 13 , with Georgetown playing at IL and Wisconsin traveling to Xavier. Scheduled through 2022, the Gavitt Tipoff Games will be played on consecutive days early in the college basketball season.

Moving onto the main attraction, a double tap gesture now skips tracks. Otherwise, you could put the Pixel Buds back in their case and restart the pairing process any time you wanted to listen to a music on a new device - say your laptop and your headphones.

Lastly, you can now turn the headphones on and off with a triple tap on the right earbud. Just select the Bluetooth menu on whatever device you've previously paired the Pixel Buds with and you can select them to connect to again. You can turn them back on with the same gesture. And, it allows you to control your audio too-just swipe forward or backward to control volume and tap to play or pause your music. The lack of track skipping was one of the Pixel Buds' more questionable omissions compared to the Apple AirPods.

The update is starting its rollout today and should be available for everyone by early next week assuming everything goes well.
