Airpods Pro With Android

  • Airpods Pro works with Android, but some functionalities of Airpods Pro would be missed on Android phones.

Downsides

  • Using Airpods Pro with an Android phone won't give access to Siri functionality as it is only meant for iOS.
  • Airpods Pro comes with iOS 13 enabled features like audio sharing, which enables two different sets of Airpods to share the same audio stream. This feature is inaccessible when Airpods Pro is used with an Android phone.
  • Some functionalities of Airpods Pro are accessed through an app but there is no such app for non-iOS users.
