In the new firmware update, the year-old Galaxy Buds+ earbuds have received an auto-switching function. The function is first introduced on Galaxy Buds Pro, and last month it has launched on Galaxy Buds Live. Along with it, the Buds+ receives a Buds Control menu in the Bluetooth settings to make the controlling easy for users. The firmware version R175FXXU0AUB3 is currently rolling out in the US, India & South Korea for now.
The Auto-switch feature will allow you to automatically switch between your Galaxy devices like phone & tablet. For example when you are watching videos or streaming songs on one device and the other device receives a phone call then the earbuds will automatically connect to the phone call. It saves time to re-pairing your Galaxy Buds+ with the smartphone. At this moment it only supports Galaxy devices that run on One U1 3.1 software version.
In the market only flagship models are running on the One UI 3.1 version, so slowly more Galaxy devices will get this support. The Galaxy Buds Live has received the Hearing Aid function in the new update, but Galaxy Buds+ misses it. To install the new update, go to the Galaxy Wearable app & check for any unchecked updates.
