Despite all the jokes being made at the expense of the Apple AirPods, it was still a success which is far from what Google can say about their Pixel Buds but Google is looking to change things up with the next version of Android.
9to5Google reported that Google is working on some new feature for the Pixel Buds. This new feature includes the customizable double tap feature, a new triple tapping functionality, in-ear detection that will pause when the right earbud is removed which is a feature that Apple is offering on their Apple AirPods
That is on top of all the features the Pixel Buds already offered like accessing Google Assistant, adjusting volume, pause playback and more.
If this is true, we will most likely see these new features added to the Pixel Buds when the new Android P is released so sit tight and wait.
