The Galaxy Buds Plus companion app, Galaxy Wearable, allows for extensive customization. You can adjust touchpad settings, modify Ambient Sound levels, and even add touch actions. Here are some of the best settings to explore for your Galaxy Buds Plus.

Before we dive into it though, here are a couple of things to consider:

1. Control the Notifications

Imagine grooving to your favorite song, only to be interrupted by pings and beeps. Don’t worry! With the Galaxy Buds Plus, you have more control over your phone notifications. Instead of cutting off all notifications, which may cause you to miss important ones, you can choose to silence specific apps. Here’s how: open the Samsung Wearables app, go to Read Notifications aloud > Apps, and select the apps you want notifications from.

Select the apps you want notifications for by toggling the switches. It’s as simple as that.

After that, whenever your phone receives a notification from approved apps, you will hear a beep.

2. Summon Google Assistant

The touch-sensitive buttons on Galaxy Buds Plus allow you to skip tracks or answer calls without pressing the buds. Single and double taps have fixed actions, but the ‘long tap and hold’ action can be customized.

The Wearable app currently offers three options: Voice Assistant, Ambient Sound, and Volume Down. To enable Touchpad, simply choose either the Right or Left option, and then select Voice Assistant from the menu.

The best part? You can choose actions for the earbuds. For example, enable Ambient Sound by tapping and holding the right touchpad, and enable Voice Assistant by pressing and holding the left touchpad. Cool, right?

So, what can you ask Google Assistant to do? You can ask it to play music or call someone in hands-free mode. Just use natural language.

Note: If you select Volume on one bud, unfortunately, the same will be reflected on the other, meaning one will increase the volume and vice versa. But don’t worry because the next trick will give you plenty of room to change this default behavior.

3. Time for Some Experiments

The Buds Plus offers some experimental features in addition to the standard touchpad actions. These settings, found under Labs, allow you to enhance your wireless Bluetooth earphones.

One interesting feature of Samsung buds is the Double-tap action. Instead of the one mentioned above, here you tap on the edge of the earbuds to adjust the volume. This allows you to use the tap-and-hold action for other functions.

However, getting them to work is challenging. It may take a while to figure out how to use them effectively (and you might skip songs in the process).

4. Enable Ambient Sound During Calls

The Ambient Sound feature of the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus allows you to stay aware of your surroundings by filtering ambient noise. However, it does not completely cancel out the noise, so you can still hear sounds in your surroundings.

To ensure the best experience, it is important to have a proper fit. If the buds do not fit properly, you may hear howling sounds.

With the Galaxy Buds Plus, you can enable the Ambient Sound feature on a single bud and during calls. This is especially useful if you frequently make calls while commuting.

To enable it, go to Advanced Settings and switch on Use Ambient Sound during calls.

Did You Know: The Galaxy Buds lets you activate Ambient Sound only when both buds are active.

5. Lock the Earbuds

Touch-sensitive buttons can be distracting, so you can temporarily lock them.

To achieve this, go to the Wearable app > Touchpad, and enable the Lock touchpad feature. This way, you won’t accidentally skip songs while wiping sweat off your head.

6. Activate the Right Dolby Atmos Profile

If you listen to music on your Galaxy Buds Plus, switch to the Dolby Atmos profile on your Samsung phone. This mode offers three options: Movie, Music, and Voice, in addition to Auto.

With the Music profile turned on, you’ll experience clean and rich sound. Switching to the Voice profile enhances voices in videos or movies, while the Movie profile delivers pronounced audio. Just long-tap the Dolby Atmos icon on the Quick Settings menu and select the desired profile.

7. Add Your Own Sound Profile

If you have a Samsung phone, try out the Adapt Sound feature. It modifies the tones emitted by earphones or headphones based on your listening capabilities. I find it useful as my ears struggle with low tones. Setting up is simple: go to Settings > Sounds and Vibrations > Sound Quality and Effects > Adapt Sound, and tap on Create Custom Profile.

To hear the difference in sound quality, tap on the Cog button and listen to both sound profiles.

This is how you can maximize your Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus. You can customize touch-based actions and optimize the sound quality. When the battery is low, you can wirelessly charge the case by using Wireless PowerShare on your Samsung phone’s Quick Settings menu.

What do you like most about these Samsung wireless earphones? I appreciate the automatic pause feature when I remove them from my ears, although the touchpads can be frustrating at times. How about you?
