Apple AirPods aren’t just for Apple goods; you can also use them with your Android phone. However, there are certain limits, which we’ll go over in addition to showing you how to link your AirPods with your Android device.
Do Apple’s AirPods work with Android
Yes, Apple AirPods are compatible with any Android phone or tablet since they are still Bluetooth wireless headphones. You can even link them to non-Android devices if they support Bluetooth.
On Android, you can use AirPods to listen to music as well as chat on phone calls using the built-in mic. The main disadvantage is that you cannot control certain functionalities of your AirPods.
For example, you can’t monitor the battery level of your AirPods from your Android phone (though there is a premium software on the Play Store that can assist you do so). You also can’t adjust what happens when you double-tap the AirPods from your phone. Only Apple products may be modified with these features.
How to Connect AirPods to an Android Phone

Wait for your phone to detect and display your AirPods in the “Available Devices” section. Then, from the list, select your AirPods.
To connect your phone to your AirPods, tap “Pair” on the popup.
Your phone is now linked to your AirPods, and you’re ready to go.
