New Galaxy Buds firmware update stabilizes Bluetooth connection
Samsung regularly releases updates for its earbuds and there’s a new Galaxy Buds firmware update rolling out today. It follows the one released two months ago which improved streaming and phone call quality. The changelog isn’t a big one, only mentioned that the Bluetooth connection has been stabilized through added fixes.
This update has just started rolling out so it might take a while before you see a notification on your device. We’ve received it on our devices in Europe and the United States so far. It shouldn’t be long now before the update is available for everyone.
A new Galaxy Buds firmware update is rolling out
We had mentioned in our Galaxy Buds review that you will notice Bluetooth dropouts infrequently when using the device. Updates released since the earbuds came out have improved things somewhat but the dropouts haven’t completely been eliminated.
This new update, firmware version R170XXU0ASH2, is also an exercise in improving the Bluetooth connection between the Galaxy Buds and whatever device you’re using them with. Exactly what these “added fixes” are remains unclear. We’ll surely put this through the test to see whether or not there’s any change in the situation.
To get this new Galaxy Buds firmware update, just launch the Galaxy Wearable app on a device that they’re paired to. You will be notified automatically that an update is available. The Galaxy Buds Manager program is also available for Windows and Mac in case you want to update the firmware using your computer.
