Unofficial app allows good management of Galaxy Buds directly from Windows
Galaxy Buds can be perfectly configured through the Galaxy Wearable App for smartphones. But using it on computers is not that simple: Samsung even provides software for the wearable, but that gives few functions, such as checking and updating firmware.
Using reverse engineering, however, developer Tim Schneeberger was able to bring a number of tools to Windows computers (the app allows good management of Galaxy Buds directly from Windows) that make it as practical to set up the phone on the computer as if we were messing with it on a cell phone. The name of this unofficial application is Galaxy Buds Manager, the same name as the software licensed by the South Korean.
With this third-party solution, it is possible to check the battery levels of each phone, electrical voltage, internal temperature, firmware version, serial number, and many other information, in addition to changing Ambient Sound levels, enabling codec compatibility Dolby, reconfigure touch shortcuts, and even alert the accessory to find it (if still connected).
The tool requires the user to have .NET Framework 4.7.2 or higher installed. Unfortunately there is still no version for Linux or macOS.
It is worth noting that for now only the first Galaxy Buds is compatible with the tool. The folks at XDA Developers tried it, but confirmed that the Plus model is not yet supported. This is because the project developer did not have it to make the necessary optimizations. As a result, he opened the tool code so that devs with the latest model can make the necessary adaptations.
Lastly, it is worth remembering that Samsung is already working hard to bring the next generation of its wireless headphones to life. They can show up in the second half, next to the Galaxy Note 20.
