Hands-Free ‘Hey Siri’
You don’t always have a spare hand to tap on a control. That’s why Apple’s H1 chip takes AirPods to another level of convenience. Along with a boost to wireless performance and connection speed, the new generation of AirPods supports hand-free activation of Apple’s digital assistant.
All you need to do is say ‘Hey Siri’ while wearing AirPods to invoke the digital assistant. AirPods will recognize the command even if you’re in a noisy environment. By contrast, Galaxy Buds don’t support hands-free activation of either Bixby or Google Assistant — you’ll need to tap on the side of the earphones themselves to activate the assistant.
