      With the easy connection of AirPods to Apple products, you can watch your most recent streaming passion on the iPad or listen to podcasts on your iPhone without disturbing those around you. However, AirPods are not just compatible with Apple products; with the help of Bluetooth, they can also be used with PCs and Android smartphones.

      According to Chloe Albanesius in PCMag.com, here’s how to connect Apple’s truly wireless earbuds to PCs and Macs, whether you need to drown out your coworkers or keep that Zoom call secret.

      How to connect AirPods to a Windows PC

      Bluetooth is how your Windows laptop and AirPods communicate, so check sure it is enabled. If Bluetooth isn’t already turned on, go to Settings > Devices > Bluetooth & other devices and turn it on. Additionally, Windows 11 adds a Quick Settings option for Bluetooth that can be accessed from the taskbar.

      Click “Add Bluetooth or other device” up top.

      Your computer need to keep track of your AirPods. If they don’t connect immediately the next time you wish to connect, look for them in the list of Bluetooth devices that are available and click to connect.
