Tech giant Google has recently updated its Fast Pair feature to mimic the one Apple has.
Fast Pair was introduced in 2017 and showed a thumbnail notification when users wanted to pair their Bluetooth headphones on their Android mobiles. A tap on the sign will serve as an acknowledgment to start the pairing and confirm the request.
The feature has been updated today and now has a tall sheet appearing from the bottom. The Bluetooth device’s name is centered and with a ‘connect’ option to it. Afterwards, users can ‘close’ or ‘setup’ depending on what they need.
Google has made Fast Pair come up automatically when a supported accessory is detected. Android makes use of a compact notification showing the battery percentage, as well as re-pairing options on tablets and phones with the same Google account.
Google added a slew of features to coincide with the Pixel Buds, including button customization, low battery alerts and Find My Device.
