Google some time ago introduced what you call Fast Pair technology. It works brilliantly when it comes to pairing your Android device with your earbuds; the speed of pairing is so quick. That is the not only advantage you get with technology. Fast Pair technology also stores the paired devices in your Google account and it can pair any other Android device if you are logged in with the same account.
Google working on making audio switching between devices straightforward
In a recent development, Google has announced a new technology with Fast Pair at its foundation. However, it gets an additional functionality that allows it to switch between different devices based on users’ actions. It is worth mentioning that the new tech also considers various audio categories like call, notification, or media playback.

Google in a blog has explained that “So for example, if you’re watching a video on your tablet and you receive a notification on your phone, your headphone audio will not switch to your phone. But if you receive a phone call, your headphone audio will make the switch”.
In addition to that, Google has also mentioned that a notification will appear after switching to it. Users can switch to the original device just by tapping it. Google further adds that headphones that feature audio switching and multi-point support will be able to connect to two devices at once.
For those unfamiliar, Pixel Buds Pro features the audio switching tech. However, various other companies, including Sony and JBL are also working on bringing the tech in the coming weeks to their devices.
Google revealed that “Audio switching is available between Android devices to start, with plans to expand to more of your favorite platforms and devices over time”. As a result, we can say that other devices are also getting this feature. It will be a wonderful addition.
