Apple’s AirPods have been here for years now. The first generation was launched in 2016 alongside Apple’s iPhone 7. Now, there’s a second generation of Airpods and a pro version of Airpods called as Airpods pro. The Airpods provide some of the features which come in very handy like tapping on them for activation of Siri and the pro model even has active noise cancellation.
Usually, Apple tries to bound people with their eco-system and only allows people to use it among their devices only. But that’s not the case with Apple’s Airpods. People can connect their AirPods to other Android devices as well. So here is a guide on How to connect AirPods to Android phones.
Surely some of the features will be missed out while connecting the AirPods to Android devices such as the virtual assistant won’t work since AirPods are made to work with Siri and Android devices have Google Assistant.
Alongside this, you won’t even get the battery indicator option of the Airpods on your Android device. However, you can download the Assistant Trigger app to display battery life on your phone and launch the Google Assistant after double-tapping an earbud.
So if you are ready to face all this dilemma, then here is what you have to do to connect your AirPods to Android device.
