Did you know that you can skip songs with just a few taps on your AirPods Pro? Well, you can! We’ll show you exactly how to do it so that you can jump tracks without ever having to pull out your phone.
When it comes to managing your music, AirPods Pro are extremely versatile. It’s often quicker and easier to use them than your phone or laptop when skipping tracks. Whether you’re walking, jogging, or just hanging around the house, navigating your tunes with AirPods Pro is a breeze.
How to Skip Songs With AirPods Pro
Skipping songs with your AirPods Pro doesn’t need to be a hassle. Just double tap one of the AirPods when you want to skip to the next track. It’s as simple as that!
You can also play, pause and resume the music with a double tap. But if you’re feeling extra fancy, you can customize your double-tap settings by going into your device’s Bluetooth settings. You’ll have the ability to choose whether a single or double-tap plays or skips a song. This works for both music and podcasts on both Android and iOS devices.
No matter what device you’re using, make sure that you have your AirPods charged up before beginning – they need enough battery power for the functions to work correctly! Once your headphones are charged, sit back and enjoy skipping through your favorite tunes with ease!
Skip Back and Skip Forward Buttons
If you want to take control of your listening experience and quickly jump between songs or podcasts, it’s easy to do with AirPods Pro. Just press and hold the side of either AirPod Pro to access the skip back and skip forward buttons.
The skip back button lets you quickly jump 10 seconds back in the track. This is great if you missed a few words or want to listen to a phrase again. Just press it twice and you can quickly jump 30 seconds back, too!
On the flip side, the skip forward button lets you jump ahead 30 seconds in the track for those times when you need to skip an ad break or fast-forward over a section of your podcast. And pressing it twice will make sure you get where you need go even faster, taking you straight ahead one minute!
Using Siri to Skip Songs
Another easy way to skip songs on your AirPods Pro is by using Siri. All you have to do is double-tap on either of your AirPods and say “Hey Siri, skip this song.” That’s it! You’ll have skipped to the next track in no time.
If you want more control over your music, you can also use Siri to adjust the volume and pause songs. The process is the same as skipping a song—just double-tap one of your AirPods and tell Siri what you want it to do. For example, you can say “Hey Siri, turn the volume up” or “Hey Siri, pause the music.”
It’s really that simple! With just a few taps and voice commands, you’ll be able to enjoy your music in no time.
How to Turn Off Skip Back and Skip Forward Buttons
You’ve probably noticed two buttons near the bottom of your AirPods Pro: the skip back (double tap) and skip forward (triple tap) buttons. They’re super handy and make listening to music a breeze—but if you’re not a fan of these shortcuts, don’t worry, you can disable them!
- Open the Settings app.
- Tap on Bluetooth and open your AirPods Pro options menu.
- Tap on the info button next to your AirPods Pro listing.
- Look for the Skip Back/Skip Forward toggle and switch it off.
- Exit out of your settings; that’s it!
Now, you can listen to music without worrying about accidentally skipping songs with a careless double or triple tap!
Customizing Your AirPods Pro Settings
If you want to customize your AirPods Pro settings, you have a few options. First, you can head to the AirPods section in your iPhone’s Bluetooth settings and select “Automatic Ear Detection,” “Noise Cancelation,” and any other special features.
You can also customize how sound plays by learning a few simple commands—try saying “Hey Siri, skip this song” each time you want to switch up the track. You can also use this command to control the volume and pause or play the audio too!
If you don’t have an iPhone, there are still other ways to control your music with your AirPods Pro. Here’s what you need to know:
- On an Android device, tap and hold either earbud for one second to play/pause music or double tap for the next song;
- On a Macbook laptop or desktop computer, click on the sound icon in the menu bar and click on the headphone icon;
- On Windows computers with Bluetooth enabled devices, click on the sound icon in the bottom right corner of your taskbar and select “Connect”.
Once connected, you can adjust volume level with a press-and-hold gesture on either side of your AirPods Pro—and use double taps for Play/Pause or Skip tracks as well!
