Samsung Galaxy Buds major update brings Bixby support, new gesture, more
Samsung announced a few months ago that customers who purchase the Galaxy S10 will receive the Galaxy Buds for free, but the South Korean company quickly ran out of free earphones and started to offer $200 gift cards instead.

Anyway, those who were lucky enough to get them for free, as well as those who bought them should be happy to know Samsung is now pushing out an important update to all Galaxy Buds out there.

The update brings a new gesture that will allow you to enable Ambient sound via long press, SamMobile reports. Also, the touchpad control has been improved when you double tap and triple tap.

More importantly, the update adds Bixby support, which means you'll be able to control the earphones with your voice (Korean and English). The following Galaxy Buds function can now be enabled with Bixby: Ambient sound, battery status, equalizer selection, and lock touchpad.

If you want to update your Galaxy Buds, here is what you'll have to open the Galaxy Wearable app from your smartphone (make sure the earphones are plugged in). If the update is available in your country, a notification should appear on your display. You can also manually check for the update by heading to Galaxy Buds / About earbuds / Update earbuds software.
