Recently I've been talking to some people, and they had some questions about their AirPods. And they didn't know some of these features, so I wanted to share them with you. And if you know them, that's fine, or maybe it's a refresher for you! The fifth one in particular is one I use all the time, and many people still don't know what exists. So the first thing has to do with double tapping the air pods. They actually have a touch-sensitive outside layer here, you can double tap for different features, and those features can be customized. Now I already have one of them in my ears so that it's activated. But what we want to do is go on our iPhone, go to settings, then go to Bluetooth. And under Bluetooth, tap the little "i" next to your air pods. Once they're connected, you can modify these. So you'll see "double tap on Airpod left or right," and we have a couple different options. So we can change this from Siri to play, pause, next track, previous track ,or off. And they can be customized from left to right. So if you want Siri on the left and play pause on the right you can do that. So we can just change this one to play/pause on the right or they'll just pause when you take them out of your ear. Or you can do next track, previous track either one. You can choose whatever works best for you and adjust it accordingly. The next tip has to do with using AirPods with other devices, not just Apple devices, but Android devices or other Bluetooth devices. You can use these with pretty much any Bluetooth device if you weren't aware of that. So what you need to do is just hold this button on the back. You'll see they're not paired here. We'll hold the button. We'll just keep holding it down, and you'll see over here if I bring my pixel phone over, we can pair them to this device. So you can pair it to an Android device, they're connected and now they're active. So now I can use it with this device, using it for music. You just won't get all the features you do with the iPhone. Now I have these paired to my iPhone again. And one of the tips I recently told someone, they didn't realize is that you can find these if you lose them. They're under "Find My phone." So let me show you how that works. So we'll go into Find My iPhone. You'll see it's right here. I'll tap on the device, now you can see it found my device, I just have it hidden on the map here. And what we can do is tap on this and get some different actions. We'll tap on it and then we have the option to actually play a sound, so we can play a sound to locate it. And then locate our device if we've lost it, so we have a general idea where it is, and then it will just play a sound so we can find it. And the other thing is once they've been found, it tells you that they've been found nearby, so you should be good to go there. Now the next feature is something many people are really excited about when they first announced it ,and this is called "live listen." And what "live listen" allows you to do is use your iPhone to listen remotely using your AirPods, so they have to be within about 30 feet or so. But what you need to do is add it to control center. So if you don't have it in control center already, it'll be a little ear here. So we need to go into settings, we'll go back here. We'll go to control center, then we'll customize the controls. Then we're going to scroll down until we find hearing, and if we've got hearing, we tap Add. You'll see it's added there, now if we go into the control center, we've got a little ear. If we 3D press or tap on it, it pops up, and it says I'm unavailable for current route. However if I take these out of here, maybe you put one in my ear, you'll see it says live listen off. And all I need to do is turn that on, and now I can hear myself through my AirPods. So you can set this in the distance, maybe you're at a classroom or you're trying to hear someone in the distance speak. You can use this to listen to them. Now it won't work from a mile away or anything like that but it's helpful in a classroom setting. I think that's what the idea was with this. Or if you're trying to hear someone in a crowd and you want to hear what they're saying right next to them. So you could just place this next to them and listen in. Now the last tip is something I use all the time. And it's a little bit more recent for me so let me go over to my Apple TV. So now I have the remote for the Apple TV, and you can do one of two things here. You can hold the play button down, let me hold it down,. And you'll see we immediately get where we're recording from but also we can change where the speakers are being projected to. So maybe I want the Apple TV to move over to my AirPods so that I can hear it and no one else. So maybe you want to watch a movie late at night, you don't want everybody to be able to hear, you can do that. So let's do this here and now you can adjust the volume and everything else. Or you can change this setting within settings itself. So go to settings, go to video & audio, then you can go down to audio output and then select AirPods. You can also do this with an a homePod as well or you can see Mac Mini or HDMI. So whatever you have selected it will use. And I use this all the time late at night when my kids are trying to sleep and I want to watch whatever TV show. So it's very very helpful and some thing I use all the time. Now one final tip is more about keeping these from getting lost to begin with and that's to use a case. I didn't know until recently that they actually made cases for AirPods. In fact, when I was at CES this year, Catalyst had them, and they were nice enough to just give this to me. It's not sponsored or anything but I thought it was kind of neat. And maybe I was ignorant to it, but I just didn't realize there were cases for them. So this keeps it waterproof. Slide this in, there's a little bit of air in there. But in the bottom here you can see it's a little bit difficult to slide in, but they're not coming out. So in the bottom you'll see you've got access to a port, it keeps them waterproof when that's sealed. And then if you want to use your AirPods you just fold this down like this. And then open it up and you're good to go. And then you can link it to whatever you like or clip it to whatever you'd like and you won't lose it. So I'll link that in the description. I thought it was kind of neat and just wanted to share that with you. But let me know what you think in the comments below. I'll leave a link to the wallpaper in the description. Thanks to the Twitter follower that actually sent this to me and also created this exclusively for this video. So it's @EvgeniyZemelko if I pronounced that wrong, I'm sorry. But I'll link that in the description. He was nice enough to create this just for the video and I'm really appreciative of that . So be sure to check him out and follow him on Twitter if you haven't done that already. If you haven't subscribed already, please subscribe and like. As always thanks for watching. This is Aaron, I'll see you next time.
