Apple offers iOS and macOS users the ability to quickly pair them rather than having to go through your phone's Bluetooth settings. Fast Pair is now available on Android.
According to a 9to5Google APK teardown, Google may be bringing Fast Pair to the Samsung Galaxy S23 series. For those who are unfamiliar, Fast Pair is similar in concept to Apple's own feature when pairing devices like AirTags, Apple Watches, or AirPods with an iPhone or iPad.
It's super simple to set up accessories, especially if users are new to their phones or Bluetooth settings. All users must do is bring the accessory close to the device and it should be detected and a prompt should appear, guiding users through the setup/pairing process.
It's no surprise that Google has included this functionality in the Samsung Galaxy S23 series. Both Google and Samsung have developed a pretty close and close working relationship over the years, with Google helping Google with the redesign of its Wear OS platform.
