(Pocket-lint) – Google is preparing an update to Wear OS that will allow Google-powered smartwatches to take advantage of the greater convenience of Fast Pair: connecting to headphones you’ve already paired to your Android phone.

A changelog published by Google and discovered by 9to5Google.com reads as follows:

“[Wear OS] Fast Pair on Wear OS to allow headphones that have already appeared to be discovered and connected to wearables[5].

– [5] Available via Google Play Services v22.24 updated 06/24/2022.”

Like Apple AirPods with iPhone, the Fast Pair feature not only makes it quick and easy to pair compatible headphones from your phone, but also registers them to your Google Account, and makes them accessible from anywhere. other Android devices without re-pairing them.

With this feature coming to Wear OS smartwatches, it means that when you pair headphones on your Android phone, they’ll be saved to your account, and instantly available to pair from your Wear OS watch. You won’t have to go through a tedious process to pair your headphones to your watch.

Quick Pairing is a feature that Google has developed and improved over the past couple of years, and it’s not just a feature that lets the headphones quickly pair with your devices.

It has also been integrated into wearables to facilitate their pairing with your Android phone and allows you to find lost devices using the Google Find My Device service via Google Search.

Google has also developed the service to work on Android/Google TV devices, Chromebooks and even Matter-enabled smarthome devices, making connecting and accessing smart IoT devices and wearables more convenient than ever. .
