AirPods have surged in popularity since they were first launched back in 2016. And while they are typically associated with Apple users, who want to connect them with their iPhone, iPad, or Macbook, there will be users out there who own non-Apple devices, but want to pair them with AirPods.
Today, we are going to take a look at HP laptops, to see whether or not these are compatible with AirPods, and if so, how exactly can we pair them up? Read on, to find out the answers to these questions.
Are AirPods compatible with HP Laptops?
As an Apple product, it goes without saying that AirPods are built to work seamlessly with other Apple devices. But in some cases, bridging the gap between Apple and non-Apple products is not always a straightforward situation. The good news here, is that AirPods are compatible with HP laptops, provided you have a Bluetooth connection.
Many laptops will have Bluetooth built in, but if this isn't the case for you, then you can buy a Bluetooth dongle for relatively little money, and use that to connect the two devices. So with the Bluetooth element taken care of, what else do you need to do, in order to connect your AirPods to your laptop?
