Samsung is currently releasing an update for the Samsung Galaxy Buds which aims to improve and stabilize the earbuds’ Bluetooth connectivity. The update is just 1.38MB in size and has the software version R170XXU0ASJ2.
The Galaxy Buds by Samsung have been receiving regular updates since it was launched way back in June 2019. The June update aimed to fix some streaming issues as well as the quality of audio while making or receiving a call.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Receive Software Update to Improve Bluetooth Connectivity
The changelog of the update for the Galaxy Buds contains only one change that fixes some bugs to stabilize the Bluetooth connection for the Buds. The Galaxy Buds use Bluetooth 5.0 for connecting to devices and playing music. However, in some situations, the streaming gets cut.
The issue of the Galaxy Buds being unstable was escalated recently and many thought it was a problem with Android 10. As it turns out, the Galaxy Buds were the culprit and Samsung has now rolled out this update to fix the connectivity and stability issues.
How to Install Updates on your Galaxy Buds
The new update can be installed on your Galaxy Buds by pairing them with an Android device and installing the Galaxy Wearable app on the smartphone. After installing the app and pairing it with the Galaxy Buds, you will see the update pop up as a notification. You can then download and install the 1.38MB update from the Galaxy Wearable app and subsequently install it on your Galaxy Buds.
Unlike smartphones, Samsung doesn’t roll out incremental updates for the Galaxy Buds due to the less download size. This means that each user of the Samsung Galaxy Buds will receive the latest update as soon as it is released by Samsung.
