Google's Pixel Buds finally let you skip tracks with a double tap

As noted above, the software update for the wireless headphones is rolling out today, so keep an eye out. When you use Pixel Buds with your Pixel or other Android device with the Assistant, simply touch and hold the right earbud to ask for your favorite playlist, make a call, send a message or get walking directions to dinner.

There next new feature is a double-tap.

You'll notice that double tap is in there twice, that's because the action is actually configurable. Simply double tap the right earbud will skip the now playing song, so it's a great way to navigate through a playlist without needing to take out your phone. That can be changed now, reassigning the double-tap feature to skip the track of music you're listening to. Otherwise, you could put the Pixel Buds back in their case and restart the pairing process any time you wanted to listen to a music on a new device - say your laptop and your headphones.

One of the complaints levied at the devices was a lack of controls and customizable gestures. Now, as long as you've connected to two devices before, you'll just need to select Pixel Buds on the one you want to work with, and your buds will disconnect from the last and connect to the newest.

The update is starting its rollout today and should be available for everyone by early next week assuming everything goes well.
