According to the report by SamMobile, several users have started posting on social media and Samsung’s official forum about the connectivity issues after the update, irresponsive gesture controls, unstable ambient sound mode. In contrast, some users have reported inconsistency in sound output as well. Some users have even reported about the complete failure of the left earbud after the update.
The entire problem is a part of the recently released firmware build R170XXU0ATD2 for Galaxy Buds with which Samsung was planning to bring some latest and greatest Buds+ feature to old devices. However, Samsung, as of now, has not commented anything about this issue or the reason behind it. But as we know, the entire chaos has happened because of the latest software update. Another software patch might fix them.
For those unaware, Samsung rolled out the update two days back that brings features like Microsoft Swift pairing, improved ambient sound mode and ability to resume the playback from the popular music apps.
Among others, the ambient sound was the most touted feature that now allows Galaxy Buds users complete control over how they want to tune in and out the ambient sound. Also, the function now automatically turns on, unlike the previous update where users have to do it manually using the companion app.
