FAQS – Pairing Galaxy Buds To Chromebook
1. Chromebook is not detecting Samsung Galaxy Buds
Assuming there is no issue with Bluetooth on the Chromebook, Samsung buds sometimes won’t be able to communicate with other devices.
One of the main reasons is that you probably have another device that the buds have been paired to and used. Even though the buds are not connected to that device, if that device has Bluetooth turned on, the Buds will constantly look for and try to connect to the recent devices it was connected to.
The solution is to just not have any devices that have Bluetooth features on them and if there are, you need to make sure that the Bluetooth has been turned off on that. This can be another iPad, phone, laptop any device with Bluetooth functionality.
2. Why won’t my Bluetooth headphones connect to my Chromebook?
If you have previously connected your earbuds to the Chromebook before but now it won’t reconnect, you can reset galaxy buds completely.
Open settings and toggle Bluetooth “On” and “Off” and try and see if the headphones connect.
Worst case, you will have to repair the headphones to your Chromebook. This applies to any wireless headphones and not just Galaxy Buds.
If you want to repair or rest galaxy buds, put them in your ears and press on both of them with your fingers. Press and hold for at least 10 seconds until you hear a constant chime.
On the Chromebook, remove the Galaxy Buds previously paired and look for the new Buds that appear on the unpaired list.
