Google has just revealed a few other updates that would make Android’s management of compatible Bluetooth devices even better.
With last year’s Jaybird Tarah Bluetooth headphones, Google launched the Fast Pair concept. Fast pair makes it easy to discover and pair Bluetooth headsets. Since then, the company has added dozens of OEMs, ODMs to deliver more fast pair devices.
Headphones that support Fast Pair will be able to independently display the individual battery life for each earbud and charging case, and a notification when the case is opened or closed.
Also, Fast Pair devices in the Find My Device application and website will soon be visible, so that users can easily track lost devices. It might not be helpful if your headphones fall behind the couch, but it’s a beginning.
These are the devices which will support the Fast Pair feature;
- Anker Spirit Pro GVA
- Anker SoundCore Flare+ (Speaker)
- JBL Live 220BT
- JBL Live 400BT
- JBL Live 500BT
- JBL Live 650BT
- Jaybird Tarah
- 1More Dual Driver BT ANC
- LG HBS-SL5
- LG HBS-PL6S
- LG HBS-SL6S
- LG HBS-PL5
- Cleer Ally Plus
Finally, Android Q gets a special section to manage fast-pair headphones. Users can access device management features in one place, such as Google Assistant settings, battery life, and links to third-party management applications.
Google claims that with future updates, they will ultimately support more hardware. It’s just a matter of developers signing up.
