Turns out that that rumor was the real deal, as Google has just announced a few different new additions for their first-generation wireless earbuds.
Triple tap: Pixel Buds can now be manually turned on or off by triple-tapping on the right earbud. Some annoyances in the user experience meant I eventually stopped using mine over some of my other headphones, but a new update rolling out addresses some of the headphone's biggest annoyances. Next, you can double tap to skip to the next track while playing music, a feature you'll need to set up in your Pixel Buds' settings in the Google Assistant app on your phone.More news: Clouds and Showers Leads Wednesday Weather Forecast
Double tap: Until now, double tapping let you hear notifications as they arrived on your phone.
Easy switching: Finally, you will be able to quickly switch your paired devices with the Pixel Buds. The new gestures come in handy when one is using the Pixel Buds with their Pixel or another Android smartphone that has Google Assistant installed.More news: Kevin James, Leah Remini thank fans after 'Kevin Can Wait' cancellation
