Google hopes to ease the pain of pairing Bluetooth accessories with multiple devices through an update to its Fast Pair specification. Moving forward, Google says Fast Pair will "connect accessories to a user's current and future Android Phones" as long as they are signed into their account and running Android 6 and up. This same feature will reach Chromebooks in 2019. Google's manufacturing partners have been building Fast Pair into their headphones, speakers, and other devices since last year, and will announce more over the coming months. In order to simplify the process for manufacturers, Google has added native Fast Pair support to the software development kits of component makers including Airoha Technology, BES, and Qualcomm. Using such components, Jaybird's Tarah Wireless Sport Headphones will be among the first to support the updated Fast Pair spec. Products from Anker/Soundcore, Bose, and others are on the way.
