Google reports on Android news and connections 2022

Google wants to improve and simplify connections and make our devices more integrated with each other. Their “Fast Pair”, which offers smoother Bluetooth connections, will soon be available for Chromebooks.

Headphones that support “Fast Pair” should be able to connect to Chromebooks with a single click. The news will be released in “a few weeks”. Google writes that those who get a new Chromebook this year will be able to install and configure it using an Android phone, to be able to directly access, for example, Wi-Fi networks and Google account.

Android phones and Chromebooks will at the same time have a tighter integration through a further development of “Phone Hub”, and it will be possible to share files to Windows computers through Nearby Share.

Google plans to simplify connections to devices in the smart home, as it will be possible to connect via “Fast Pair” to all devices that support Matter. Those who have a Wear OS watch will be able to use it as a key for Chromebooks and Android devices. As long as the watch is connected, the devices are unlocked.

So if you’re wearing headphones to watch a movie on your Android tablet and you receive a phone call, the movie will pause and the headphone audio will automatically switch to your Android phone and then switch back to the movie when you’re done.

Another novelty is that devices automatically know which one we want to use – and when. As an example, Google mentions that if someone uses headphones to watch a movie on a tablet and the person receives a phone call, the headphones will automatically connect to the phone instead.

When the call is completed, the headphones switch back to the tablet. The feature will be released in the coming months for compatible headphones.
