How to pair your Samsung Galaxy Buds on Windows and macOS

Your Samsung Galaxy Buds work with Windows and macOS

Samsung offers some of the best wireless earbuds with excellent sound, tight integration with Samsung Galaxy devices, and a feature-rich companion app to tweak the sound experience. The South Korean giant’s ever-expanding Galaxy earbuds lineup works with all your Bluetooth-enabled devices, including an Android phone, iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Windows.

Samsung makes connecting Galaxy Buds to a Galaxy phone, Galaxy Book, or tablet flawless. But the same isn’t true when you connect your Samsung earbuds to a different Windows PC or Mac. You need to put your Galaxy Buds into pairing mode and open the Bluetooth menu on your laptop. Here’s how to connect Samsung earbuds to a laptop.

How to put Samsung earbuds into pairing mode

You can’t simply pull out your Galaxy Buds and connect them to a laptop. You must enable pairing mode first. There are a couple of ways to turn on the pairing mode on Galaxy earbuds.

Use the charging case

If you are connecting your Galaxy Buds for the first time, use the charging case to enable the pairing mode.

  1. Put your Galaxy earbuds in the charging case and close it.
  2. Wait for five to six seconds and open the case lid.
  3. Your Samsung earbuds should enter Bluetooth pairing mode.

Use touch sensors

If you connected your Galaxy Buds with another phone or tablet, the trick above may not work. You need to enable pairing mode manually.

  1. Put the Samsung earbuds in your ears.
  2. Hold both buds’ touch sensors for eight to nine seconds.
  3. You should hear continuous beeps that confirm an active pairing mode.
