New Galaxy Buds update fixes the battery level indication issue

Samsung’s new redesigned and rechristened Galaxy Buds are receiving a software update as we speak. It’s a tiny update, but comes with a couple of important bug fixes. The update is rolling out with software version R170XXUOASC4 and weighs a mere 1.32 MB.

Galaxy Buds now indicate correct battery level

Apparently, Samsung’s new wireless earphones were not indicating the battery percentage correctly. The new update fixes this issue. You should see the accurate battery percentage in the Galaxy Wearable app going forward. The update also fixes a bug in the ambient sound menu. This is about the function that adds surrounding sound to your music, so that you know what’s going on around you. Lastly, the new update brings a more stable Bluetooth connection, though we cannot say we had complaints before.

To update your Galaxy Buds, open the Galaxy Wearable app while the buds are connected to your smartphone. A pop-up should appear if an update is available for your Galaxy Buds. You can also manually check for updates by going to the Galaxy Buds section of the app and then tapping About earbuds, followed by Update earbuds software, and finally, Download and install.

Have you updated your Galaxy Buds to the latest software version? Do let us know if you notice any difference after the update.

Noticed the battery percentage is shown only in increments of 5.

How it was before ?
Maybe due to used batteries in Buds we can’t see the exact battery level ?

Well I hope this fixes the issue of them not being fully in sync … now and then no matter what music player I used one ear would fall out of sync from the other so I would hear everything 2 times

I bought Galaxy Buds and tied them on and they are uncomfortable when I speak on a phone call (I heard myself vibrating) so I returned them.
