    What have you set for the double-tap gesture for your AirPods?

    I started with Siri, however found that Play/Pause was far more useful and discrete (especially in public locations, resuming playback when audio isn't just paused).

    My wish would be Apple adding a triple tap gesture, allowing me to set double tab as play/pause and triple for Siri (that by now should be able to handle some stuff locally, not having to ask the hive mind reply, that can take quite a bit of time).

    PS - Sorry about the spelling of Siri in the poll, can't find a way to edit it.

    It's stored within the bluetooth setting for the AirPods. So it would be settings/bluetooth/AirPods, and you will see the option to change.

    Play/pause I find it more useful than Siri although it would be good if you could have Siri on one AirPod and play/pause on the other.

    I chose for Play/Pause. I found that when you're listening to music and hold the phone close to yourself, it still allows you to use the 'Hey, Siri' feature.

    I can't get my tapping consistent. It's hit or miss

    Play/pause here. I listen to podcasts and music all day long and its easier at work to just double tap the airpod to stop my play list then it is to tell Siri to stop playing it.

    I use this option as well, though at work to pause I usually just take it out since I'm headed to the bathroom, kitchen, whatever.
