The app seems to have changed. Prior you could turn multi point connection on or off and a few other options. Since they have been removed, the ear buds do not seemelesly connect from laptop to phone. Or even from music on phone to incoming/outgoing phone. Function of these Buds has decreased. I am currently shopping alternative options.

Hey Jason, don’t give up yet. Multipoint connectivity is available on Pixel Buds Pro. Make sure you’re using the correct type of earbuds and your Pixel Buds app should be updated too. You can also check if your earbuds are running the 4.30 version. For more help, visit:

Appears to be no option to disable touch and hold without turning off all other touch functions. Since I've always had trouble getting earbuds to remain in my ears, every time I go to push them back in I end up turning off noise canceling and have to turn it back on. Updating to lower the rating of my review. Over time the quality of these earbuds has degraded. Despite cleaning the case and the buds, they almost never detect that they're in the case and instead hijack my phone's bluetooth.

Hey there, you can turn off touch controls by going to your Phone's settings > Connected Devices > Pixel Buds settings > Touch Controls. Or you can say "Hey Google, turn off touch controls." Learn more here:

I can currently give the app a 4 from a 3. A lot of the bugs have been worked out. I do hope a fix will come through that when using the controls to immediately listen to an incoming notification it will actually play. Also I'm sure several people including myself can't always answer a read out notification. Having the buds/software decide for me to not read out after one missed call out is kind of unnecessary.
