Despite significant flaws, I liked them quite a lot in my review, but plenty across tech media did not.

One of the complaints levied at the devices was a lack of controls and customizable gestures. Today, Google is rolling out a number of new features to Pixel Buds, including new double and triple tap gestures, as well as the ability to easily switch between devices.

However according to Google, users will now have the option of changing that to the ability to skip to the next track when listening to music.

Double tap: Until now, double tapping let you hear notifications as they arrived on your phone.

Last but certainly not least, Google's making it much easier to switch the Pixel Buds back and forth between devices it's already been paired with. Previously, you had to disconnect the Pixel Buds from the first device and then open it in the next one. You can still use a voice command to skip tracks, even with this new gesture enabled.

The Google Pixel Buds are among the most curious launched recently by the Mountain View company accessories, which wanted to jump into the world of wireless headsets in an innovative and original way. The update rolls out beginning today and should be available to most users by early next week.
