like the apple watch, Apple's wireless earphones aren't just compatible with iOS devices. It's also possible to use Apple AirPods with an android phone like a normal pair of Bluetooth headphones.
Here's how to connect your Apple AirPods to an Android device and the features they offer.
While AirPods work well with android, it's important to note that not all functionality is available when using AirPods. The automatic ear detection doesn't work. And by default, you can even see the AirPods battery life percentage on andriod.
CONNECTING THE APPLE AIRPODS TO AN ANDROID PHONE WORKS IN THE SAME WAY AS CONNECTING ANY DEVICE VIA BLUETOOTH
Open the Bluetooth settings on your Android device
Select Pair a New Device
Open the Apple AirPods case to enable pairing
When the AirPods appear, confirm pairing
If they don't appear, push and hold the button on the rear of the AirPods case until the LED light between the AirPods flashes. This puts the AirPods in pairing mode and you can repeat step 4
Both the first generation and the second generation of apple AirPods can be connected to an android device, or another device, via bluetooth.
