In addition, getting the most out of your earbuds is easy when you install Galaxy Buds Manager on your Windows PC.
Samsung Galaxy Ear Buds App On Windows Mobile
All you need is to download the Samsung Galaxy Ear Buds App for Windows Mobile from Microsoft Store.
The app size is 19 MB and lets you monitor device status and settings.
The store listing only mentions utility for Galaxy Buds Pro.
Its store description is extremely brief and to the point: “The Galaxy Buds allows you to use features such as device settings and status view when connected to a Galaxy Buds Pro device.” Odd introductory wording aside, the message is clear: This app is a standard companion app for Samsung’s wireless earbuds, much like how just about every other company has companion apps for their cordless buds.
It’s worth noting that the Galaxy Buds app is available not only on PC and mobile devices but also HoloLens, in case you were itching to snag the app on your $3,500 HoloLens2.
The store page’s “features” section really emphasizes Samsung’s minimalist relationship with words, stating (entirely in lowercase) “device settings, status view” and nothing more. However, if you give the app a go, you can see settings that include a noise cancellation adjuster, touch blocker setting, and more. These features are visible in the store page’s screenshots, though said screenshots aren’t in
In any event, the app itself is advertised as supporting many languages, including English, so don’t take the store page as a thorough representation of what you’ll be getting.
If you want a companion app for your Galaxy Buds Pro, this is where you go. Samsung’s App for Windows 10 keeps things minimal and to the point.
