Last Update date : 2020-11-20

Galaxy Buds / Buds + pairing information is synced through your Samsung account, allowing Buds / Buds + to be connected to other Galaxy devices without further pairing. If you are logged in to Samsung Cloud, your Buds / Buds + will be automatically paired with any of your Galaxy phones, Galaxy tablets and Galaxy Watch with the same account. To pair with a computer, TV, phone or tablet that does not have a Samsung account, you need to pair it manually for the first time.
