Live Listen On iPhones And iPads Arrives In AirPods For The First Time

Not only available in iPhones or iPads, but the feature Live Listen has also come to AirPods for the first time.

Back in 2014, Apple introduced the Live Listen which allows an iPhone to pair with hearing aids and then serve as a remote microphone.  And with newly-updated iOS 12, the company is bringing this feature to your AirPods. The new Live Listen now uses your iPhone’s microphone to listen to the environment, then, your phone will catch the sound via the microphone and transmit it into the AirPods so you can hear it more clearly.

It is a  really handy feature for late-night TV viewing in a situation when you don’t want to disturb other people sleeping in the house. This can also help you hear a conversation in a noisy environment. Moreover, you can create a baby monitor with this new feature.

Let me give you another example! If you want to keep an eye on your baby when you are in another room, you can set up your IOS device as a makeshift baby monitor. First, make sure your AirPods are connected to your iPhone and in your ears. Then activate it, and place your iDevice near the baby. Live Listen can help you hear if your baby cries and needs you by its side. It will ensure that you can hear your baby properly.

Moreover, it can be used when you have another audio playing on your iOS device. But keep in mind that every sound will be switched to mono to match the Live Listen stream. However, while you run Live Listen, tap gestures on AirPods won't work.

If you want to use your IOS device as a makeshift monitor while your child is napping and you're getting some work done in the living room, then a feature like Live Listen is a really great solution for you.
