Not all people who have truly wireless Samsung Galaxy Buds headphones use it for their Samsung or even Android devices. We have good news for those who use the earbuds with their Windows 10 devices. A new Galaxy Buds app is now available to download from the Microsoft Store so you can use it to manage your earbuds that you paired with your Windows 10 PCs, Hololens, and Surface Hub. This is part of the strengthening of the partnership between Samsung and Microsoft.
A couple of years ago, there was actually an application called Galaxy Buds Manager that could run on Windows and MacOS. It was not an official Microsoft Store app and could be installed through the Samsung Download Center. Some third-party developers continued to support it until a year ago. Now this new official Galaxy Buds app was created specifically for Windows 10, according to MS Power User. It weighs in at just 18MB and at launch appears to be compatible with Galaxy Buds Pro only.
But according to the setup screens, it will have support for Galaxy Buds + and Galaxy Buds Live, so it may be coming soon. However, for owners of the original Galaxy Buds, it is not mentioned, so it may not be supported. The app should work on Windows 10 computers and should be able to simplify connecting and reconnecting to your PC. However, there is no popup message like when you connect it to your phone.
The app tells you the battery level of each earbud and also includes an equalizer, as well as options to enable or disable touch commands and voice detection. You can also choose a level for active noise cancellation between High and Low. You can also check for new firmware updates, as well as download and install it from there. This makes it easier to manage your headphones when you use them with your Windows 10 devices.
