Last November, we released Fast Pair with the Jaybird Tarah Bluetooth headphones. Since then, we've been engaged in dozens of OEMs, ODMs, and silicon partners to bring fast pair to even more devices. Last month, we are announcing I / O announcing 10+ certified devices, support for Qualcomm's Smart Headset Development Kit, and upcoming experiences for Fast Pair devices.
Fast Pair makes pairing seamless across Android phones – this year, we are introducing additional features to improve Bluetooth device management.
- True Wireless Features. As True Wireless Stereo (TWS) headphones continue to gain momentum in the market and with users, it is important to build system-wide support for TWS. Later this year, TWS headsets with Fast Pair will be sent to you. This enables features as well as battery-per-component battery reporting throughout the UI.
Detailed battery level notifications surfaced during “case open” for TWS headphones.
• Find My Device. Fast Pair devices will soon be surfaced in the Find My Device app and website, allowing users to easily track down lost devices. Headset owners can view the location and time of last use, as well as unpair or ring the buds to locate when they are in range.
• Connected Device Details. In Android Q, FastPair devices want to have Bluetooth device details. This includes links to Find My Device, Assistant Settings (if available), and additional OEM-specified settings that will link to the OEM's companion app.
The updated Device details screen in Q allows easy access to key settings and the headphone's companion app.
