Easy Tips on How to Check AirPods Battery Life on Android Devices

Checking AirPods Battery on : A Simple Guide by Tracy

Unsurprisingly, Apple AirPods are quite popular even with users of Android devices, regardless of the OS' native compatibility. A common question often asked is, “How can you check AirPods' battery on Android?”. Fortunately, this guide will offer an easy-to-follow solution.

Option 1: MaterialPods App

The easiest way to check Apple AirPods' battery level on an Android device is by using an application called MaterialPods. Here's how it's done:

  1. Download and install the MaterialPods app from Google Play Store.
  2. Open the app and follow the on-screen instructions. This usually involves granting notifications access for the app.
  3. Connect your AirPods to your Android device. A notification displaying the battery percentage of both the AirPods and the charging case will appear on your phone. Remember, the precise readings will only be given when the AirPods are in use or in the charging case.

Option 2: Assistant Trigger App

If for some reason, you're not a fan of the MaterialPods app, there is another alternative: the Assistant Trigger app. The process is quite identical:

  1. Download and install the Assistant Trigger app from Google Play Store.
  2. Open the app and grant it the necessary permisions.
  3. Connect your AirPods to your Android device. The battery levels will pop up in the notification bar, just like in MaterialPods.

One added advantage of Assistant Trigger is that it also enables the in-ear detection feature of the AirPods in Android devices – something that is usually only available in iOS devices.

In conclusion, using AirPods with Android devices presents a slight setback as it doesn't naturally support battery notifications. However, like MaterialPods and Assistant Trigger fill the gap perfectly, making things smooth and manageable.
