How do I set up AirPods Pro to skip songs?

Answered by Ricardo McCardle

Setting up your AirPods Pro to skip songs is a simple process that can be done right from the stem of the AirPods. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

1. First, make sure your AirPods Pro are connected to your device, whether it’s an iPhone, iPad, Mac, or any other compatible device.

2. Hold the stem of the AirPods Pro gently between your fingers. The stem is the long portion of the AirPods that extends downwards from the earpiece.

3. Locate the indented section on the stem of the AirPods Pro. This is the area where the force sensor is located.

4. Give the indented section a gentle squeeze twice in quick succession. You should feel a slight click or feedback when you press it.

5. The track currently playing should skip forward to the next song. This feature works with most music and audio streaming apps, including Apple Music, Spotify, and others.

6. If you want to fast forward through the track currently playing, you can continue holding the force sensor on the second press. This will allow you to skip forward within the same track.

It’s worth noting that the skip track functionality may vary depending on the app and device you’re using. Some apps may have their own customized controls or gestures, so it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the specific controls for the app you’re using.

Additionally, you can customize the controls of your AirPods Pro through your device’s settings. This can be done by going to the Bluetooth settings on your device, finding your AirPods Pro in the list of connected devices, and selecting the “i” or “settings” icon next to it. From there, you can customize the controls to your liking, including the double-tap or squeeze gesture for skipping tracks.

In my personal experience, setting up and using the skip track feature on AirPods Pro has been seamless and convenient. It’s a great way to quickly navigate through your music without having to reach for your device.

So, go ahead and enjoy your music with the ease of skipping tracks on your AirPods Pro by simply squeezing the indented section on the stem.
