How to connect Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus to laptops, iPhones and other devices

However, unlike the Jabra Elite 75t, the Galaxy Buds Plus cannot stay connected to two different devices at the same time, unlike what was stated when they were initially released.

However, pairing these wireless Bluetooth earbuds is a walk in the park. We will explore how to connect Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus with iPhone, laptop and smartwatch.

1. Galaxy Buds Plus a Laptop e Desktop

Let's start with the most obvious thing first: when you want to connect your laptop or desktop with Samsung Galaxy Buds. Here are the steps.

Step 1: to get started, simply open the case. This pushes the buds into association mode. This means that it makes them discoverable by your phone, laptop and other compatible gadgets.

The only thing you need to remember here is to disconnect them from the previous device.

Step 2: on your Windows 10 PC, go to the Settings menu (just press Windows key + I key), go to Device> Bluetooth and other devices.

Once inside, add Bluetooth or other devices to start scanning.

Step 3: tap the first option, then the earbuds will show up if they are within pairing distance. And now you know the rest.

Just tap the connect button and you can stream your favorite show on Netflix or your favorite song songs on YT Music with your Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus.

The good news is that your laptop will remember the last paired device when you open it next. All you have to do is take the sprouts out of the case and the rest will be taken care of by the system.

2. How to pair Galaxy Buds Plus with MAC

Connecting Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus to an Apple MacBook Pro or Macbook Air is just as simple. Follow the steps below.

1 pass: Open the case lid of the Galaxy Buds Plus to put them into pairing mode. Just like the grind above, you'll need to unpair them from the previous device as they have a hard time connecting if they stay paired with another device.

Step 2: on your Mac, tap the Status menu and select the AirPods option to open the Bluetooth menu.

The buds will appear in the Bluetooth menu as soon as your Mac detects them.

Then, click the Connect button and get ready to play your favorite songs.

PROFESSIONAL TIP : You can change the left and right earphone audio via the Audio Preferences option in the Bluetooth menu.

3. How to pair Galaxy Buds Plus to the smartwatch

One of the benefits of owning a smartwatch with built-in music memory is that you can take your favorite songs with you on your runs and walks. And you can leave your smartphone at home.

If you own a Samsung smartwatch like Galaxy Watch or Galaxy Active 2, pairing them with buds is one of the simplest tasks.

Step 1: Like the previous steps, you just need to put Galaxy Buds Plus into pairing state.

Step 2: one finished, open your phone's Bluetooth menu by going to Settings> Connection> Bluetooth> Bluetooth Audio.

Tap Scan and the headphones will appear in the menu.

Now, just tap Connect and that's it. Simple, you see. You can also enable / disable the Call Only option according to your preferences.

Step 3: next time you want to listen to your favorite soundtrack, go to the Music widget on your smartwatch and tap the little smartphone icon. Once it's switched to watch mode, tap the Play button to play the songs loaded into the watch.

4. Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus ad Apple Watch

The Apple Watch boasts one of the simplest interfaces and it's easy enough to connect earphones to it.

Step 1: as indicated above, disconnect the buds from the previous devices and push them into pairing mode.

Step 2: on Apple Watch, tap the Settings icon and scroll down until you see the Bluetooth menu.

Tap it and you'll see the watch start scanning for a new device.

If the buds are nearby, all you have to do is select it and connect. That's all! Then, open the Music app and play your favorite melody.

And once you want to disconnect the sprouts, tap the 'i' icon and select the Forget option.


Of course, you lose some features when not connected to a phone, but that shouldn't stop you from exploring these wireless earbuds further. Did you know that you can also increase the degree of ambient sound via the Labs feature? Well, now you know.

So what's your favorite Galaxy Buds Plus feature? Let me start, I love its small and light nature. And you?
