So it’s been a while since Samsung has been releasing true wireless earphones. there are the original Galaxy Buds then comes to the Galaxy Buds Plus, last year Samsung launched Galaxy buds live and after that with the Galaxy fold series Samsung launched the Galaxy Buds Pro 2. They all are a very good pairs of wireless earbuds. All of them come with great sound quality and good features as well. The last year’s Galaxy Buds Live and the Galaxy buds pro of this year come with Active Noise cancellation which is a very good technology and a premium one too. All of these buds also feature ambient sound feature as well. Not only that these buds have touch controls as well. However, by using the touch controls you can do several tasks and even call your phone’s assistant. In that case, if you have a Samsung device with Bixby then it will call Bixby and there is no official way through which you can change it to google assistant since nobody uses Bixby. But, fortunately, we found a way through which you can finally change your default assistant to call-on earbuds to Google from Bixby. here is how to use Google Assistant on Galaxy Buds.

As there is no official setting in the Galaxy wearable app through which you can change it. inside the app, there is only an option to enable or disable the Bixby on the galaxy buds. Also, not to mention if you prefer Amazon Alexa that can also be configured to be used on your Galaxy buds.
