Introducing Fast Pair.

Google is introducing a new feature on Android that would make it faster to connect devices to your smartphone. Called Fast Pair, the feature is rolling out on Android devices running 6.0 (Marshmallow) and up.

With a Fast Pair compatible device, you can simply bring it near your Android device and a simple prompt will appear on the notification center telling you that a device is ready to pair. Just tap that notification and it instantly pairs with your smartphone – no more long prompts and password entries needed.

At the moment, Google’s Pixel buds and the Q Adapt On-Ear headphone from Libratone are the only Fast Pair compatible devices. More upcoming devices should be compatible soon. Also note that Location and Bluetooth should be turned on your Android device before you could use Fast Pair.
