      Samsung has released a software update for the first revision of the Galaxy Buds branded wireless headphones. Thanks to the update, the device has acquired useful features previously available only to owners of the Plus version of the accessory.

      One of the innovations is support for the Microsoft Swift Pair function, which makes it possible to quickly connect TWS headphones to a PC based on Windows 10 (1803 and higher). At the same time, the system recognizes the accessory as a headset, which makes it possible not only to listen to music but also to voice communication.
      The headphones also have support for Ambient Sound technology, which allows you to stay up to date with everything that is happening around you. Enabling this mode will be especially useful in urban settings when it is important for the user to hear not only their playlist but also the surrounding environment.
      In addition, the owners of the device now have the ability to quickly launch Spotify without taking their smartphone out of their pocket. Use the "Click and hold" gesture to activate the last track where listening stopped, and when the operation is repeated, the service will offer recommended playlists.
