Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro Upgraded To Outclass AirPods Pro
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro was released last year as one of the most feature-rich pairs of noise-canceling earbuds in the market— and Samsung has since added and enhanced the buds’ functionality through many firmware updates.
The latest update introduced a feature that made the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live easier to use, but was removed from the Galaxy Buds Pro at launch: “Double Tap Earbud Edge” controls. Once the update is installed, the users of the Galaxy Buds Pro can adjust playback volume by doubling-tapping on the side of the buds.
It was still possible before this new update to raise or lower volume using the Galaxy Buds Pro’s touch sensors, though you had to manually customize the tap-and-hold gesture in the Samsung Wearable app first. Mapping volume controls to this feature also indicated you couldn’t use tap-and-hold for its other possible inputs, like ordering a digital assistant or opening the app on your phone.
