We’ve all been there: You’re running late for a video meeting and you’ve only got a few moments to pull up your presentation and speak to your entire team. In between the dog barking, construction happening just outside your window, and having misplaced your charger, the last thing you want to deal with are audio and connectivity issues between your AirPods and your Mac.

For those moments when you need to get your Mac’s audio synced up to your AirPods in a pinch, AirBuddy is here to help. This helpful, multifunctional app connects your AirPods to your Mac in a single click, and it only costs $9 right now.

Use your AirPods with your Mac

Once you get AirBuddy running, just open your AirPods case near your Mac to see whether you’re connected right away. It works just like using your AirPods with your iPhone or iPad. In a single click, you can instantly connect and start playing your Mac’s audio, whether you need your AirPods for entertainment or productivity.

You also can change up your listening modes quickly and seamlessly, thanks to a global keyboard shortcut. Or you can use gestures and the power of automation to switch listening mode, microphone input or output volume — without fussing with your System Preferences or poking around your Mac’s Bluetooth menu.

With AirBuddy, you can also get an overview of all of your nearby devices, including the battery usage stats for your headsets and AirPods. Or, if you rely on other devices for audio and communication, AirBuddy conveniently and intelligently groups your devices based on their relationship to each other. No wonder this popular Mac app earned 4.5/5 stars from users.
