Your playlist won’t always deliver the right songs.

Therefore, knowing how to skip songs prevents you from reaching for your phone when songs you don’t want to hear come up.

This process is pretty straightforward on the first and second-generation AirPods.

For these headphones, the default setting is to double-tap one of the Airpods to change a song.

The Airpod Pro allows you to double-tap or long-press either pod to switch to another song.

However, you can only adjust the long-press setting with these headphones.

You can turn off double-tap skipping on any Airpod anytime you wish.
