Practice English Speaking&Listening with: 5 AirPod Tips and Features You Might Not Know

Difficulty: 0

hi everyone Aaron here for ZolloTech and I want to share with you five tips

for your air pods that you might not know recently I've been talking to some

people and they had some questions about their air pods and they didn't know some

of these features so I wanted to share them with you and if you know them

that's fine or maybe it's a refresher for you the fifth one in particular is

one I use all the time and many people still don't know what exists so the

first thing has to do with double tapping the air pods they actually have

a touch-sensitive outside layer here you can double tap it for different features

and those features can be customized now I already have one of them in my ears so

that it's activated but what we want to do is go on our iPhone go to settings

then go to bluetooth and under bluetooth tap the little eye next to your air pods

once they're connected you can modify these so you'll see double tap on air

pod left or right and we have a couple different options so we can change this

from Siri to play pause next track previous track or off and they can be

customized from left to right so if you want Siri on the left and play pause on

the right you can do that so we can just change this one to play pause on the

right or they'll just pause when you take them out of your ear or you can do

next track previous track either one you can choose whatever works best for you

and adjust accordingly the next tip has to do with using air pods with other

devices not just Apple devices but Android devices or other Bluetooth

devices you can use these with pretty much any Bluetooth device if you weren't

aware of that so what you need to do is just hold this button on the back you'll

see they're not paired here we'll hold the button we'll just keep holding it

down and you'll see over here if I bring my pixel phone over we can pair them to

this device so you can pair it to an Android device they're connected and now

they're active so now I can use it with this device using it for music you just

won't get all the features you do with the iPhone now I have these paired to my

iPhone again and one of the tips I recently told someone they didn't

realize is that you can find these if you lose them there under find my phone

so let me show you how that works so we'll go into Find My iPhone you'll see

it's right here I'll tap on the device now you can see it

found my device I just have it hidden on the map here and what we can do is tap

on this and get some different actions we'll tap on it and then we have the

option to actually play a sound so we can play a sound to locate it and then

locate our device if we've lost it so we have a general idea where it is and then

it will just play a sound so we can find it and the other thing is once they've

been found it tells you that they've been found nearby so it should be good

to go there now the next feature is something many people are really excited

about when they first announced it and this is called live listen and what live

listen allows you to do is use your iPhone to listen remotely using your ear

pods so they have to be within about 30 feet or so but what you need to do is

add it to control center so if you don't have it in control center already it'll

be a little ear here so we need to go into settings we'll go back here we'll

go to control center then we'll customize the controls then we're going

to scroll down until we find hearing and if we've got hearing we tap Add you'll

see it's added there now if we go into the control center we've got a little

ear if we 3d press or tap on it it pops up and it says I'm available for current

route however if I take these out of here maybe you put one in my ear you'll

see it says live listen off and all I need to do is turn that on and now I can

hear myself through my air pot so you can set this in the distance maybe

you're at a classroom or you're trying to hear someone in the distance speak

you can use this to listen to them and now it won't work from a mile away or

anything like that but it's helpful in a classroom setting I think that's what

the idea was with this or if you're trying to hear someone in a crowd and

you want to hear what they're saying right next to them so you could just

place this next to them and listen in now the last tip is something I use all

the time and it's a little bit more recent for me so let me go over to my

Apple TV so now I have the remote for the Apple TV and you can do one of two

things here you can hold the play button down let me hold it down and you'll see

we immediately get where we're recording from but also we can change where the

speakers are being projected to so maybe I want the Apple TV to move over to my

air pods so that I can hear it and know else so maybe you want to watch a movie

late at night you don't want everybody to be able to hear you can do that so

let's do this here and now you can adjust the volume and everything else or

you can change this setting within settings itself so go to settings go to

video & audio then you can go down to audio output and then select air pots

you can also do this with an a home pod as well or you can see Mac Mini or HDMI

so whatever you have selected it will use and I use this all the time late at

night when my kids are trying to sleep and I want to watch whatever TV show so

it's very very helpful and something I use all the time now one final tip is

more about keeping these from getting lost to begin with and that's to use a

case I didn't know until recently that they actually made cases for air pods in

fact when I was at CES this year catalyst had them and they were nice

enough to just give this to me it's not sponsored or anything but I thought it

was kind of neat and maybe I was ignorant to it but I just didn't realize

there were cases for them so this keeps it waterproof slide this in there's a

little bit of air in there but in the bottom here you can see it's a little

bit difficult to slide in but they're not coming out so in the bottom you'll

see you've got access to a port it keeps them waterproof when that sealed and

then if you want to use your air pods you just fold this down like this and

then open it up and you're good to go and then you can link it to whatever you

like or clip it to whatever you'd like and you won't lose it so I'll link that

in the description I thought it was kind of neat and just wanted to share that

with you but let me know what you think in the comments below I'll leave a link

to the wallpaper in the description thanks to the Twitter follower that

actually sent this to me and also created this exclusively for this video

so it's evgeniy zoom Elko if I pronounced that wrong I'm sorry but I'll

link that in the description he was nice enough to create this just for the video

and I'm really appreciative of that so be sure to check him out and follow him
