The Google Fast Pair Service (GFPS) uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to discover nearby Bluetooth devices without using a significant battery. It is aimed to smoothen the first time pairing of audio sink devices (speakers, headphones, car kits, etc) with as little user interaction required as possible. The subsequent pairing will be seamless based on proximity.
When you put a Fast Pair-enabled accessory near your Android smartphone, it shows the accessory’s product image, name, and companion app from Google’s servers. Once you hit connect the pairing process will be done.
The Google Fast Pair works with Android (6.0 or later) smartphones (with Google Play Services 11.7 and above) and a pair of supported headphones. Additionally, Android also offers to download the accessory’s companion app. You don’t have to go through Bluetooth menus/settings at all. Here’s How It Works:
How To Connect Wireless Headphones Via Google Fast Pair
- Turn on your Fast Pair-enabled Bluetooth headphones
- Enable pairing mode
- Now, you should see a blue icon in the top left of your phone’s status bar
- Swipe down and tap the prompt for your headphones
- Select ‘Allow’ if your headphones ask to access your contacts.
- That’s it!
Now your headphones are paired to your Android smartphone. Next time you turn your headphones on, they will automatically connect to your handset. Both your smartphone and wireless headphones will remain paired unless you remove them from your Bluetooth settings.
