The Airpods 3rd Gen have new force sensor control for audio control, including to pause, play and next, and to answer calls. Moreover, it can auto detect when put in the ear or when removed from the ear - thanks to its skin-detect sensor, which also paused the music immediately it detect that the device has been removed from the ear.
