How to Connect AirPods to Android

Apple AirPods are not limited to Apple products; you can also use your AirPods with your Android phone. There are a few limitations though, as we’ll point out in addition to showing you how to pair your AirPods with your Android device.

Do AirPods work with Android?

Yes, Apple AirPods work great with any Android phone or tablet as they are still standard Bluetooth wireless headphones. You can even connect them to non-Android devices, as long as the device supports Bluetooth.

On Android, you can use AirPods to listen to music, but also use the built-in mic to talk on phone calls. The only downside is that you can’t control certain functions of your AirPods.

For example, you can’t check the battery level of your AirPods from your Android phone (although there’s a paid app on the Play Store to help you do that). You also can’t change the effects of a double tap on AirPods from your phone. These features can only be customized from an Apple product.


How to Pair AirPods with Android Phone?

To pair your AirPods with your Android phone, you will first need to put the AirPods in discovery mode so that your phone can detect them.

To do this, first place your AirPods in their charging case. Leave the cover of the case open. Next, on the back of the charging case, press and hold the setup button.

Press and hold the configuration button.

The light on your charging case will flash white, indicating that your AirPods are ready to pair.
