How to connect Samsung Galaxy Buds to multiple devices

You can connect your galaxy buds to multiple devices in a few different ways. One way is to use the Samsung Galaxy Wearable app. The app comes by default on Samsung phones and tablets.

You can also download it from the Playstore and Appstore if you are using a non-Samsung device. The app allows you to manage your audio content and control your galaxy buds from your phone or tablet. To connect your earbuds to your devices using the galaxy wearable app:

  • Open the wearable app and tap on connect
  • Select your bud type from the popup list.
  • Follow onscreen instructions to connect.
  • Repeat the same process for your other mobile devices.

Every time you open the charger case, the buds will automatically try to connect to the last device it was connected to. The galaxy wearable app is not supported on all devices for your galaxy buds. You must manually connect to your earbuds if your device is not supported. This method is a little more manual, but it's still relatively easy to set up. Follow the steps below to connect manually:

  • Place both earbuds in their charging case and leave it there for 5-7 secs.
  • Open the case, and the earbuds will automatically enter into Bluetooth pairing mode.
  • If the earbuds have been connected previously with another nearby device, you have to force the earbuds into pairing mode.
  • To do this, insert the earbuds into your ears and press the earbud sensors for a few secs until they are forced into pairing mode.
  • You will hear a pairing sound to confirm this.
  • Go to Settings on your device and tap on Bluetooth.
  • Turn on Bluetooth and select your earbuds from the list of available devices.
  • Go to the next device and repeat the process again.
  • Your galaxy bud will be on the list of available or paired devices in the Bluetooth menu of each of your devices.
