Do AirPods work with Android?


If you are looking for top-notch Bluetooth earbuds, Airpods are certainly one of the options to go for. But, what if you own an Android device? You are probably wondering do Airpods work with Android? Yes, they do! So, no matter what Android phone you have, be it Samsung, Huawei, or some other model, you will be able to use AirPods.

However, you should keep in mind that Airpods are designed primarily for iPhone. And while you can use them with your Android device, you won’t have some features that are reserved exclusively for iPhone users. For instance, when AirPods are used with iPhone, as soon as you remove them from your ear, the music will be paused. That’s something that won’t happen if you use them with Android. In addition, on iPhone, you choose what will happen when you tap the Airpods two times. Logically, you won’t have Siri access. iPhone users have the option to connect the AirPods in a matter of seconds. All they have to do is open the AirPods case near their iPhone, and that’s it.

But, if you want to have great Bluetooth earbuds, and you don’t have a problem with missing the features we just mention, you will enjoy using AirPods with your Android device. Down below, we are going to show you the steps on how to connect AirPods with Android.
