Can you wirelessly charge the Pixel Buds Pro?

You’ll be happy to hear that, yes, the Pixel Buds Pro do support wireless charging. Thanks to a Wireless Power Consortium filing, we even have an idea about the wireless charging speed.

How fast do the Pixel Buds Pro charge wirelessly?

In what seemed like a flurry of reveals, Google I/O 2022 saw the unveiling of loads of Pixel products on the software side and hardware sides alike. Between all the Pixel 6a and 7 series announcements, the Pixel Watch unveiling, and the Pixel Tablet teaser, the Pixel Buds Pro were slightly overshadowed at the conference. Looking at the Google Pixel Buds Pro in isolation, there’s a lot to be excited about.

The beautiful dual-toned colorways match the color scheme of the Pixel 6 and 7 series, and the design looks both practical and attractive so far. With an IPX4 rating, ANC, 31 hours of playtime (without ANC), and an auto-adjusting Volume EQ feature, the Pixel Buds Pro are making a strong case as some of the best wireless earbuds. While Google didn’t confirm the speed, it did confirm wireless charging as a feature officially.
