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.

Detailed battery level notifications surfaced during “case open” for TWS headphones.

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;

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.

The updated Device details screen in Android Q allows easy access to key settings and the headphone’s companion app.

Google claims that with future updates, they will ultimately support more hardware. It’s just a matter of developers signing up.
