An update that improves Galaxy Buds Pro ANC is now rolling out
Samsung's latest and greatest truly wireless earbuds, the Galaxy Buds Pro were released early in 2021 alongside the company's newest Galaxy S21 line of smartphones, and even match their colors.

In our Galaxy Buds Pro review, we found them to have fantastic sound quality and build, along with good ANC (Active Noise Cancelling) and handy features. Their ANC isn't as strong as the ANC on the AirPods Pro, but the Buds Pro can notably detect if the user starts talking to someone and automatically switch to Ambient Sound, which is just one of several handy features they have that the more expensive AirPods Pro do not.

In any case, Samsung seems to be continuing its efforts to improve the Buds Pro's ANC, as now SamMobile reports that the Samsung Galaxy Buds are getting their first post-launch update in the US and other regions.

Although the update doesn't seem to add any additional functionality to the Buds Pro's accompanying Galaxy Wearable app, the 2.20 MB update says that it brings improved ANC and better Ambient Sound functionality, in addition to stability and reliability improvements.

Samsung's One UI 3.1 software update for Galaxy smartphones and tablets is soon expected to bring more substantial features to the Galaxy Buds Pro, such as 360 Audio, Auto Switch and Multi Mic Recording.
