Setting Up Galaxy Buds on a Chromebook
The first step is to make sure that your Chromebook is updated with the most recent software. You can check for updates in the settings menu.
Once your Chromebook is updated, open the case for your Galaxy Buds and hold them near the top of your Chromebook. You’ll see a notification on the screen asking if you want to connect them. Tap “connect.”
Your Galaxy Buds will now be connected to your Chromebook and you can use them to listen to music, make calls, and more.
Enabling Bluetooth on the Chromebook
Once your Chromebook is up and running, it’s time to enable Bluetooth. To do this, click on the two squares in the top right-hand corner of the screen, and select “Settings.”
From there, scroll down and select “Bluetooth.” Make sure that the slider is turned on, and that your Chromebook can see your Galaxy Buds. If everything looks good, click on the three dots next to your Galaxy Buds and select “Pair“.
The next time you open the case for your Galaxy Buds, they’ll automatically connect to your Chromebook.

Checking Audio Output and Input Settings
The first thing you’ll want to do is check your audio output and input settings on your Chromebook. To do this, go to the Chrome settings menu and click on the “Advanced” drop-down. From there, click on the “Audio and Video” sub-menu.
On the next page, you’ll see your audio output and input devices. Make sure that both “Allow sites to access your microphone” and “Allow sites to play sound” are turned on.
You can also set your default audio output and input devices from here. If you want to use your Galaxy Buds as your primary audio source, make sure that they are selected as the default output device.
Chrombook Apps to Help You Fine-Tune Audio Settings
While you’re here, you might as well download a few Chromebook apps to help you fine-tune the audio settings on your Galaxy Buds. My personal favorites are Equalizer APO and Armhf Homefront, but there are plenty of options out there.
Equalizer APO is a great way to adjust the sound of your Galaxy Buds, whether you want to boost the bass or treble, or even just tweak the sound to better suit your taste. It’s a great app for customizing the audio experience on your Chromebook.
Armhf Homefront is another excellent app for audio customisation, and it also happens to be my go-to app for managing all my music files. It’s got an excellent user interface and it’s really easy to use, which makes it perfect for managing your music library on your Chromebook.
Troubleshooting Tips for Connecting Galaxy Buds to a Chromebook
If you’re having trouble connecting your Galaxy Buds to your Chromebook, there are a few troubleshooting tips that might help.
- First, make sure that your Chromebook is running the latest version of ChromeOS. To do this, click the notification area in the bottom-right corner of your screen and select “Settings.” Then, click “About ChromeOS” and “Check for Updates.” If there’s an update available, follow the prompts to install it.
- Another thing to check is whether or not Bluetooth is enabled on your Chromebook. To do this, open the Chrome settings by clicking the notification area and selecting “Settings,” then click “Advanced” and scroll down to the “Bluetooth” section. Make sure that the Bluetooth toggle is turned on.
- If you’re still having trouble connecting your Galaxy Buds, try resetting them. To do this, press and hold the touchpad on both earbuds for about eight seconds until you hear a beep. This will reset your earbuds and clear any pairing information they have stored.
All in all, connecting your Galaxy Buds to a Chromebook is an easy process that shouldn’t take more than a few minutes of your time. Just make sure you have the necessary tools and software installed, and you’re good to go!
