Since Apple manufactures AirPods Pro, many people believe these wireless Bluetooth buds don’t work with Android devices. However, this is far from true. Android users can use AirPods Pro and take their listening experience to a new level.

How to Pair AirPods Pro With an Android Device
Before using your AirPods Pro for listening to music, podcasts, TV shows, movies, and other content, you first need to pair them. Since Android devices don’t belong to the Apple ecosystem, you can’t pair your AirPods Pro with only one tap. Fortunately, pairing your buds isn’t complicated.
Here are the steps you should follow:
- Grab your Android device and go to Settings.
2. Open “Connections” and tap “Bluetooth.” Note: These settings may vary depending on your Android device. You may see “Bluetooth” as soon as you open the settings, or you may have to press “Network” or “Wireless & Network” first and then find “Bluetooth.”
3. Turn on your Bluetooth and ensure your device is discoverable.
4. Grab the charging case of your AirPods Pro and open it. Press and hold the button on the back and wait until the indicator starts flashing white, meaning the buds are ready to pair.
5. AirPods Pro should now appear under “Available devices” on your Android device. Tap their name and confirm the process by selecting “Pair” in the dialogue box. You’ll also be asked to confirm if you allow AirPods Pro to access your contacts and call history.
Keep in mind that you only need to complete these steps once. After AirPods Pro have been paired with your Android device, they’ll connect automatically as soon as you take them out of their charging case.
