- Using the below steps, you can pair AirPods with your Android phone just like you would any other Bluetooth device.
Apple’s AirPods work best with iPhones, iPads, and other Apple products, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to use them if you own an Android phone. When paired with Android devices, Apple’s wireless earbuds can still be used to listen to music and take phone calls.
Apple made a surprise announcement on Wednesday when it unveiled its second-generation AirPods, which start at $159 just like the older model. The new wireless earbuds support hands-free Siri access and are powered by an all-new H1 chip designed specifically for headphones which enables faster pairing with Apple devices. Plus, Apple now offers the option to purchase them with a wireless charging-compatible case for $40 more.
