After iOS, which users have been able to quickly switch wireless sound sources for years, Google Android will have similar opportunities. If there are headphones supported by Fast Pair, it will no longer be necessary to dig through Bluetooth settings to transfer headphones from smartphone to tablet and vice versa, Google reports on its blog.
The Fast Pair technology provides a quick connection of Bluetooth headphones to Android devices without the need to make any additional settings. Google has decided to expand this function by adding a fast switch between them, for example, if instead of music on the phone you want to watch a movie on a tablet.
Unlike Apple, Google will not limit the functionality of Fast Pair's headphones under its own brand. It debuts on previously announced Pixel Buds Pro's TWS headphones, whose sale is scheduled for next week, but later there will be compatible analogys between Sony and JBL. Automatic switching of sound sources will take place as a priority set by the user: so if its value for the tablet computer is higher, the headphone will no longer be switched to the phone.
