However, in fact, through the third-party tool "AirBattery" on Android, AirPods can also get an approximate iOS experience on Android. Let me introduce you to this tool today.
The function of AirBattery can be seen from its name. Its biggest use is to let Android also display the power of AirPods. AirBattery has free and premium versions, the free version is enough, there are ads, and the premium version includes the free version of the feature, removes the ads, and more features such as setting up the resident notification center, you can view the AirPods power anytime, anywhere. .
AirBattery's imitation of iOS functions is still quite in place. For example, after connecting AirPods, open the battery compartment cover, the APP will automatically activate and display the power at the bottom of the screen. When AirPods is charged in the box, it will display the power of the box and present the charging progress of AirPods. These experiences are not available on Android, AirBattery will definitely make Android use AirPods closer to iOS.
After AirPods is connected to Android, the AirBattery interface will pop up automatically, and you can see the battery and wearing status.
In addition to allowing Android to view the AirPods's power, AirBattery can also detect the status of AirPods and accurately identify whether AirPods are worn on the ear. If AirPods is worn, AirBattery will display a small logo for the ear next to the corresponding AirPods. At the same time, AirBattery also provides the ability to automatically remove Spotify playback from AirPods. It is worth mentioning that although the APP is written to support Spotify, it will also take effect in other music apps. For example, NetEase cloud music can be automatically paused and played. You can try it yourself.
After detecting that AirPods is removed, the corresponding headset will not display the small ear logo, as shown on the right.
So is AirBattery perfect? Of course I can't talk about it. On the one hand, AirBattery can't transmit voice commands. It should be known that AirPods can use Siri with iOS. On the other hand, AirBattery supports AirPods 2 quite poorly. Although it can be activated automatically, it does not recognize whether AirPods 2 removes the box or recognizes it. The wearing state of AirPods 2, automatic suspension will not be discussed.
Some function options
But in general, as a third-party app, the experience brought by AirBattery is still quite valuable, and it largely replies to the power of AirPods on the Android platform. Of course, in some details, there is still a gap between AirBattery and iOS integration into the system, and compatibility with AirPods 2 is not good. If you are buying an AirPods generation of Android users, this app is worth a try, I hope it will provide more complete support for AirPods 2 in subsequent versions.
