If you own Google Pixel Buds and a Windows PC, there will be occasions when you’d like to use your Pixel Buds with your PC, whether for watching movies, listening to music, playing games, or other tasks. Pixel Buds, one of the top true wireless earbuds, offer a compelling reason to use them with a PC.
To enjoy your Pixel Buds with your PC, you’ll need to pair them first. The pairing process is straightforward, and once completed, the Pixel Buds will automatically connect when you take them out of their case, assuming they were last connected to your PC.
In the era where the 3.5mm headphone jack has been phased out from smartphones, many users have transitioned to Bluetooth headsets for comfort and convenience. However, pairing can be time-consuming compared to a wired headset with a direct 3.5mm connection.
This guide aims to simplify the process, making it easier for you to connect your Pixel Buds to your Windows PC. Let’s dive into the steps.
How to Connect Pixel Buds to Windows PC
As mentioned earlier, connecting Pixel Buds to your PC is straightforward. Before we proceed with the steps, ensure that your PC is turned on and your Pixel Buds are adequately charged. The pairing process is consistent across most Pixel Buds models.
Step 1: Open the lid of your Pixel Buds case, ensuring the buds are inside.
Step 2: Press the button at the back for 3 seconds. The LED on the case will begin blinking, indicating that the buds are now in pairing mode.
