How to use AirPods Pro transparency mode on Android

When you hear that sound, you should find that the sounds around you become a lot more noticeable.
When using Apple devices, it is possible to activate the noise canceling and transparent modes through the device.

Why isn’t AirPods Pro transparency mode working on Android
Possible reasons why transparency mode is not working for you on Android are that the battery is low, or you are not squeezing on the stem correctly.
Alternatively, it might be the case that the transparency mode is actually working but you are not noticing it because the ear tips are too small meaning that the noise-canceling mode does not sound any different to the transparent mode.
