You should be able to check for any updates using the Galaxy Wearable app and update it from your Android device. To update the software to the latest version without a mobile connection, simply download the PC Version of Galaxy Buds Manager. The GalaxyBudsManager program is available for both Windows 7/8/8.1/10(32bit, 64bit) and Mac OS 10.8 however the PC will need to support Bluetooth to connect to the buds.

Below are more details on the new features that will now be available on the Samsung Galaxy Buds with the latest software update:
- Ambient Sound Feature: For the first time on Galaxy Buds, users can use the Ambient Sound feature with only one earbud in, providing more options for how they tune in or tune out.
- Personalized Playlist Access through Spotify: With a simple ‘Tap & Hold’ gesture, users can now launch Spotify and start listening to music where they left off, or tap and hold again to have Spotify recommend personalized playlists to discover new songs.
