Pixel Buds Could Get New Gestures Commands In Future Update

Namely, users will be able to customize controls like Double Tap, while a new Triple Tap gesture addresses a common complaint of these Google Assistant headphones.

In this "APK Insight" post, we've decompiled the latest version of an application that Google uploaded to the Play Store. Keep in mind that Google may or may not ever ship these features, and our interpretation of what they are may be imperfect.

As it stands double tapping the Pixel Buds on the right ear will list Google Assistant notifications, and pausing it while it is speaking.

Google's Pixel Buds felt pretty unpolished upon release, but it doesn't look like the tech titan has completely forgotten about them. How are you liking them? With the update though, users will have the ability to customize the gesture and skip to the next song when listening to music.

For all the headphone snobs keeping track, these rumored Google Pixel Bud capabilities are similar to functions that already appear in the Apple AirPods. What this means is that music may soon pause as soon as you remove the right earbud from your ear. The headphones offer gestures and tap controls for controlling audio playback as well as activating Google Assistant, but it looks like new options might be on the way.

Meanwhile, a string of code reveals that there will be a new "Triple Tap" command that manually turns off the headphones. Right now the only way to turn the headphones off is to put them back into the charging case.
