Tips and tricks for using AirPods with a Chromebook
It’s no secret that using headphones with a Chromebook can be a bit of a pain. Some Chromebooks have an audio jack, but many don’t, which leaves Bluetooth as the only option for wireless audio. And while there are plenty of great Bluetooth headphones out there, Apple’s AirPods have become increasingly popular thanks to their ease of use and great sound quality.
However, connecting AirPods to a Chromebook can be a bit tricky since ChromeOS doesn’t have the same built-in support for Apple products that macOS does. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with a few tips and tricks that will help you get the most out of your AirPods when used with a Chromebook.
First things first, you’ll need to make sure your AirPods are in their charging case and the lid is open. Then, open up the Bluetooth settings on your Chromebook by clicking the menu button in the bottom-right corner and selecting “Settings.”
Next, click on “Bluetooth & other devices” in the left sidebar. In the main Bluetooth & other devices window, make sure Bluetooth is turned on by toggle the switch to the right (it should be blue when it’s on).
Now it’s time to connect your AirPods to your Chromebook. Click the “Add Bluetooth or other device” button in the bottom-left corner of the window and select “AirPods” from the list of devices that pops up. Alternatively, you can also put your AirPods in their charging case and then open the case next to your Chromebook—ChromeOS should automatically detect them and prompt you to connect.
Once you see “Connected” next to your AirPods in the Bluetooth & other devices window, you should be all set! You can now use your AirPods just like any other pair of headphones with your Chromebook
