Massive Galaxy Buds update rolling out, here are the details

Your new Galaxy Buds are in for a treat thanks to a new update Samsung is rolling out for its AKG-tuned wireless earbuds. Perhaps the most important part of the new update is the touchpad improvements for when you double or triple-tap the touchpad, along with an option to select whether you want to permanently or temporarily enable the Ambient sound feature (which lets you be aware of your surroundings while listening to music or other media on the earbuds) with a long press on the touchpad.

Left earbud has been super finicky since I got them on launch. Permanent ambient sound will be good but I wish there was a way to tune the sensors a bit more.

Hey @Cprice,

 

Sweet, thanks for the PSA! The Ambient sound feature will be so much more useful now that it can be toggled on and off 😊 Can't wait to test it out with my own pair of Galaxy Buds!

 

Cheers,

Sabrina

Hey @Glutier,

 

Hmm, mine are working as expected after the update... have you tried unpairing/re-pairing your Buds or restarting your phone? If that doesn't work, you could clear cache & data for the Wearables app.

 

Let me know if any of these fixes work for you—if not, we can troubleshoot further 😊

 

Cheers,

Sabrina
