The I/O 2019 Google quietly made a series of announcements to improve the Bluetooth devices on Android. Today, the company shared the full list, which provides third-party headphones that will support the new feature, Fast Pair and Find My Device, and also displays information about the connected device in Android Q.
Function Fast Pair will help faster and easier to connect the headphones to Android devices

The earbuds with your phone are automatically recognized and the connection is made with one touch, for tablets, they are connected independently, and can also be connected to a Chromebook using your Google account.
At the end of this year on smartphones with headphones connected Fast Pair will display a certain percentage of the battery charger case and headphones. Also will show the battery case and headphones as a notification when opening/closing case.
Meanwhile, the device Fast Pair will appear in the app and on the website of Find My Device. There you will see where and when you last used them, and play them the audio signal, to make it easier to find.
Finally, with version 10, Android will get an extended page of information about the Bluetooth devices, from which you can control all available functions at once.
