Are you an Android user who recently got your hands on a pair of Apple Airpods? While Airpods are designed to work seamlessly with Apple devices, connecting them to an Android phone might seem like a daunting task.

But fear not! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of connecting your Airpods to your Android device without using the case.

Step 1: Prepare Your Airpods

Before we begin, make sure your Airpods are fully charged. This will ensure a smooth connection process and prevent any interruptions later on.

Step 2: Enable Bluetooth on Your Android Device

To connect your Airpods to your Android phone, you need to have Bluetooth enabled. Go to the settings menu on your Android device and look for the Bluetooth option. Tap on it to turn it on.


If you don’t see the Bluetooth option in your settings menu, it might be located under the “Connections” or “Wireless & Networks” section depending on your Android device.

Step 3: Open the Bluetooth Settings

Once you have enabled Bluetooth, open the Bluetooth settings on your Android phone. This can usually be found under the settings menu or by swiping down from the top of your screen and tapping on the Bluetooth icon.


If you have previously paired other devices with your Android phone, make sure they are disconnected to avoid any conflicts during the connection process.

Step 4: Put Your Airpods in Pairing Mode

To put your Airpods in pairing mode, follow these steps:

  1. Remove both Airpods from their charging case.
  2. Make sure your Airpods are turned on and not connected to any other devices.
  3. Press and hold the setup button on the back of the Airpods case until the LED light on the front starts blinking white.


If you are using Airpods Pro, the setup button is located on the bottom of the charging case rather than the back.

Step 5: Connect Your Airpods to Your Android Device

Now that your Airpods are in pairing mode, go back to your Android device’s Bluetooth settings. You should see a list of available devices. Look for your Airpods in this list and tap on them to begin the connection process.


If you don’t see your Airpods in the list, try bringing them closer to your Android device or restarting both devices before attempting again.

Step 6: Complete the Pairing Process

After tapping on your Airpods in the Bluetooth settings, your Android phone will start pairing with them. This process may take a few seconds. Once successfully paired, you will see a notification confirming the connection.

Step 7: Enjoy Your Airpods!

Congratulations! You have successfully connected your Airpods to your Android device without using the case. Now you can enjoy high-quality audio and all the features that come with Apple’s iconic wireless earbuds.


If you want to switch between different devices or connect your Airpods to another device in the future, simply follow these steps again for a hassle-free connection experience.

Remember, even though connecting Airpods to an Android device might not be as seamless as with Apple devices, it is still possible to enjoy the benefits of these wireless earbuds on your Android phone. With the steps outlined in this tutorial, you can now listen to your favorite music and take calls without any wires holding you back!
