Are you a proud owner of the latest AirPods? If so, you’ll want to know how to get the most out of them. Whether you are an Android user or an iOS user, there are some settings that you can change in order to customize your AirPods experience. Here’s how to do it for Android devices.

First, make sure that Bluetooth is enabled on your Android device and then go to Settings > Connected Devices > Bluetooth. Now open the case of your AirPods, hold it near your Android device and press the white button on the back until you get a pop-up on the screen’s list of connected devices. Tap on “Pair” and then go to Settings > AirPods.

Tap on “More Info” next to your AirPods in the list of devices and select either Left or Right under Press and Hold AirPods. This will allow you to activate Noise Control with three different modes: Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), Transparency Mode, and Off. ANC will reduce background noise while Transparency Mode will allow ambient sound in through the earbuds so that you can better hear what’s going on around you.

You can also control your music playback with press and hold features: press once for play/pause, twice quickly for skip forward, and triple-press for skip back. Unfortunately, when it comes to Android users there is no native access to Google Assistant or Siri control for controlling music playback or asking questions; however, these features are available for iOS users.

Overall, customizing settings on your AirPods is easy and intuitive if you have an Android device — just enable Bluetooth and follow these steps! With a few simple taps and presses, you can get the most out of your listening experience with your AirPods.
