Tim Schneeberger, a developer on GitHub (via XDA developers), has found the beta version of the companion app for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 on the South Korean giant’s update servers. The earplugs have been the subject of various leaks recently, and the plug-in has confirmed some of these reports and also revealed previously unknown information.

The new hearables allow you to enable and disable actions such as single-click, double-click, triple-click and touch and hold individually, and although not currently visible in the settings, the Bixby Voice Wake-up feature will also be supported. Schneeberger also says that the design of the battery dashboard has been simplified, and since “Find my earplugs” has also been redesigned.
Galaxy Buds 2 plugin reveals touch controls, confirms ANC and ambient mode
They have also made a comparison with Buds Pro and note that the upcoming hearables do not have outside double pressure on volume controls, and it seems that the feature was scrapped in the middle of the development. The ambient sound mode will probably be there, but do not expect the ANC level to be adjusted. Fortunately, the ANC will work even if only one bud is connected.
