How to use Find my earbuds function on Samsung Galaxy Buds and IconX?

Last Update date : Oct 12. 2020

With no cords or wires to untangle, the Galaxy Buds and Gear IconX earbuds are meant to be worn on the go. However, if the earbuds are lost, you can use the Find My Earbuds feature in the Galaxy Wearable App to locate them.

Search for your missing earbuds

1 Slide the screen upwards or downwards to access the Apps page, or open Apps
2 Open the Galaxy Wearable App

Please note: This application comes downloaded by default in the Samsung folder. If you do not have this App, please download it from Galaxy Store or Play Store.

3 Scroll down and tap Find My Earbuds to begin the search
4 Tap Start
5 The earbuds will start beeping, getting gradually louder for a period of 3 minutes
6 Tap Stop to end the search

If the feature is not working

The Find my earbuds feature connects to the earbuds through an IR sensor. If external nearby sources interfere with the signal, the connection may be interrupted and the beeping may not be heard properly.


The following functions might also have difficulties working correctly if the IR signal is obstructed:


• Automatic mute when you take off the earbuds
• Earbud control touchpad


Try closing and opening the earbud case to reactivate the Bluetooth pairing mode. If the issue persists, please visit a nearby Authorised Samsung Service Centre.
