How to Rename Airpods on Android

If you own a pair of Airpods and use them with your Android device, you might have noticed that they appear with a generic name like “AirPods” or “Headphones” in your Bluetooth settings. However, did you know that you can actually customize the name of your Airpods to something more personal or descriptive? In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to rename your Airpods on Android.

Step 1: Pairing your Airpods with your Android device

Before we get into renaming your Airpods, it’s important to ensure that they are properly paired with your Android device. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the Bluetooth settings on your Android device. You can usually find this in the Settings app.
  2. Put your Airpods in pairing mode.

    To do this, open the lid of the Airpod case and press and hold the button on the back until the LED light starts blinking.

  3. Select your Airpods from the list of available devices in the Bluetooth settings on your Android device.
  4. Wait for the pairing process to complete. Once successfully paired, you should see a notification confirming the connection.

Step 2: Renaming your Airpods

Now that your Airpods are paired with your Android device, let’s proceed with renaming them:

  1. Go to the Bluetooth settings on your Android device.
  2. Find and select your Airpods from the list of paired devices. They might appear as “AirPods” or “Headphones”.
  3. Tap on the gear icon next to the name of your Airpods.
  4. Select the option to rename your Airpods.
  5. Type in the new name for your Airpods and hit “OK” or “Save”.

That’s it! Your Airpods should now have a custom name that will be displayed whenever you connect them to your Android device. Keep in mind that this name change will only affect how your Airpods are labeled on your Android device, and it won’t impact their functionality in any way.

Tips for choosing a new name for your Airpods:

  • Personalize it: Consider using your own name or initials to make your Airpods easily identifiable.
  • Add a descriptor: If you have multiple pairs of Airpods, adding a descriptor like “Work”, “Gym”, or “Home” can help you differentiate between them.
  • Show off some creativity: Feel free to come up with a fun or unique name that reflects your personality!

With these simple steps, you can easily rename your Airpods on Android and give them a more personalized touch. Enjoy!
