Wireless headsets are becoming more and more common in public places. You can meet them in all big cities, not just when you see people running in parks or squares. Currently, models suitable for all tastes and pockets are available on the market, so the price range is very wide. Pairing these accessories with Bluetooth has undoubtedly become a daily routine. But this may frustrate some people. Quick match is here to help you.
“With Bluetooth, everything will be better.” Those who use connected devices every day can easily recognize this sentence from the character of the scientist Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) in the “Big Bang Theory” series words. In less than 10 years, we have become accustomed to plugging in speakers, headphones, mice and even winter hats. Bluetooth connectivity is even part of the technical library in the implementation of the French STOP-COVID platform. However, although Bluetooth accessory pairing has become an increasingly common activity, it can be a frustrating process for many people.
In order to make it difficult for people to pair their Android phones with Bluetooth and make life easier, Google launched Fast Pair. Designed for smartphones running Android 6.0 or higher, this feature can automatically detect the phone and connect it to the headset automatically. For example, this can be very useful if you put a Bluetooth headset aside and immediately forget to place the headset. If you have “true” wireless headphones (earphones that are not linked by cables or wires), you will only be able to play the left or right earbuds. Otherwise, if it is lost, you can check your last known position in the “Find a Device” app once location history is enabled.
Quick pairing can also help you charge a true wireless headset. When you open the charging case, you will receive a phone notification about the battery level of each component (right earbud, left earbud and the case itself, if any). Most importantly, you will know exactly when to charge the headset, because the program will alert you when the headset battery and case are low. Therefore, there is no risk of battery drain.
Finally, quick pairing helps to better manage the pairing of Bluetooth accessories. For wireless headphones, you can customize the device to make it easier to find. After successfully pairing with Bluetooth, you will see the name of the accessory, which will include your name. For example, Pixel Buds will be renamed “David Pixel Buds”. On Android 10 phones, you can also adjust the settings of the headset, link it to Google Assistant, and then access “Find My Device” directly from the device details page.
