The OnePlus Buds series delivered two strong pairs of really wireless earbuds last year that were incredible alternatives for all Android clients because of the expansion of Google Fast Pair support. Presently, however, the far better OnePlus Buds Pro are on the horizon, yet they ditch support for Google Fast Pair totally.
Stepping back, both the OnePlus Buds and OnePlus Buds Z offered support for Google Fast Pair. That is a standard accessible for accessories, including earbuds and smartwatches, that empowers quicker matching to Android gadgets and the capacity to share that accessory across other Android gadgets with a similar Google account. It’s a helpful feature that, truly, is underutilized by accessory producers.
That is the thing that it’s quite baffling to see that OnePlus has dumped the element, officially, on its Pro model earbuds. The organization affirmed the evacuation to 9to5Google after our initial testing uncovered that it was missing, something we originally expected may very well be a result of pre-release software.
While the OnePlus Buds Pro don’t result of pre-release software Google Fast Pair, the brand rushed to call attention to that a fast pairing solution is accessible on OnePlus phones.
A form of fast pairing is additionally accessible through the “HeyMelody” application on other Android phones. When at first opening the application, it will discover Buds Pro promptly and pair the earbuds, yet it’s not close to as consistent as Google’s solution. It likewise requires the application’s installation from the Play Store, and it’s the best way to see the battery level of the charging case.
