With its first two generations, Apple's AirPods did not take long to become the most popular wireless headphones on the planet. And I fear that the AirPods Pro will suffer the same fate, despite being considerably more expensive.
The truth is that its popularity is not difficult to understand: unlike other Apple accessories – like the Apple Watch, without going any further -, AirPods can be used with Android devices, although it may not be the best idea if you want to get the best sound quality. Although, of course, it is not opting for one of the many clones of these headphones that have not taken long to appear since the launch of the new model.
And not only that. One of the main novelties of the AirPods Pro as is the active noise cancellation It also works when the headphones are associated with an Android device. And although there is no application from which to enable and disable this function, doing so is much simpler than it seems.
How to activate noise cancellation on your AirPods Pro on Android
Unlike what happens with other wireless headphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy Buds that we analyze in your day, the option to activate the noise cancellation is not only integrated in the application. As a Reddit user has discovered, the “switch” to activate noise cancellation is directly included in the headphones.
Therefore, to activate the noise cancellation in the AirPods Pro, regardless of the device to which they are currently connected, just long press on the headset pressure sensor, until listen to a small sound, which indicates when the noise cancellation has been activated, and when it has been deactivated.
But there is more: the rest of controls intended for content playback also work smoothly next to Android devices, and it is possible pause with a touch, move on to the next song with two, or return to the previous one with three.
And in case that is not enough, and you want to get Get more out of your AirPods or AirPods Pro on Android, you can always use an application like Assistant Trigger, which among other things allows activate access to Google Assistant by clicking on the touch panel of the headphones, see the battery level of the AirPods from the smartphone and other interesting functions, some of them only available in the paid version of the application.
Unfortunately, the one that certainly is one of the newest features of the AirPods Pro as is its ability to detect if the adjustment in our ear is correct does not work on Android, and I am very afraid that not even third-party apps can get it.
