Software update for your Galaxy Buds
Keeping up with the latest updates on your earbuds is easy when you install Galaxy Buds Manager on your computer. Or, you can use the Galaxy Wearable app on your phone or tablet to not only pair and control your earbuds but also check for software updates for them. That way, you can ensure they stay current and you will get to enjoy all of your favorite music.

To help ensure your software updates run smoothly, there are a few things you can do on your phone, tablet, or computer.
Note: The Galaxy Buds Pro and Galaxy Buds Live are not compatible with Galaxy Buds Manager on a PC.

- To see what is included in the update before installing it, you can tap "What’s new"" on the update popup. That way, you will know exactly what is being changed.
When a software update is available for the earbuds, the Galaxy Wearable app will notify you with a popup. Tap Update, and then follow the prompts. The earbuds will disconnect from the phone. Once the update is complete, the earbuds will automatically reconnect with the phone.
From there, use the appropriate steps based on the type of earbuds you have:
- Galaxy Buds+, Galaxy Buds Live, and Galaxy Buds Pro: Tap Earbuds software update, and then tap Download and install.
- Galaxy Buds: Tap About earbuds, then tap Update earbuds software, and then tap Download and install.
Note: Due to compatibility requirements, the original Galaxy Buds and the Galaxy Buds Pro cannot be updated on iOS phones. You can use the Galaxy Buds Manager software with a PC or Mac (see next section) to update the Galaxy Buds. The Galaxy Buds+ and Galaxy Buds Live can be updated on iOS phones using the Samsung Galaxy Buds app. Open the app, select your Galaxy Buds, and then tap Earbuds software update.
Note: You can also update your earbuds using the Galaxy Buds Manager on your PC. But note that the Galaxy Buds Manager software on PC is not compatible with the Galaxy Buds Pro or Galaxy Buds Live.
