Test them out first. Going by video reviews, it’s not a full squeeze. It almost looks as if you can rest one finger on the back & tap the front, making it similar to Airpods v1/2.That is probably a game changer for me if that is the case. Will read some reviews tomorrow and see what people think about it.
When I want to fast-forward a podcast, I usually just double-tap a bunch of times. Works perfectly. Now it's very difficult to do with presses, and it often recognizes it as 3 presses (rewind instead of forward), so you need to double-press, wait, double-press again. Very annoying and time-consuming. I now often just take out my phone and do it there, which defeats the whole purpose of having controls on the AirPods Pro themselves.
