The answer is yes, you can connect your AirPods to your Chromebook through Bluetooth connection, but how do you connect AirPods to Chromebook using Bluetooth? We got you covered.
We will walk you through the step by step process on how to connect your AirPods to your Chromebook, let’s start!
Establishing Bluetooth connection between Airpods and Chromebook – step by step
On your Chromebook’s desktop click on the menu option at the bottom right corner of your screen.
A pop-up will appear showing the Setting, Time, Wi-Fi icon, Bluetooth, etc. turn on the Bluetooth if it’s already turned on then let it be but make sure to disconnect any device that is connected via Bluetooth, next Click on the small arrow pointing down next to the Bluetooth option when the menu pops up.

But here’s the catch
It would work for the most part but the connection is not that smooth and the range is terrible, not to mention the lag.
The double-tap feature on AirPods doesn’t work, either does the video pause after taking one of the AirPods out like on Macbook. But what really disappointing is the lag issue, the AirPods had a few seconds delay, which could be fixed by putting the AirPods back to its case. Still, a drag.
Overall, AirPods works on Chromebook but not as good experience compared to using it on Macbooks, if you’re experiencing the same problems or other issues let us know on the comment section, we’ll be happy to share possible solutions.
