Android Oreo carries over Bluetooth issues from Nougat

9

Since Pixel phones running Nougat have had some issues with Bluetooth connectivity, many people expected that Android Oreo would fix that. Alas, many Pixel and Nexus owners are now taking to Google's product forums to report that the latest version of Android has not fixed their Bluetooth woes.

Many users are complaining about the now-well-known bug where Bluetooth turns off on their device and can't be turned on until the device is rebooted, while others are reporting that connectivity is dropping temporarily while listening to music, causing slow down and weird scratching noises.

As was the case with Nougat, many Bluetooth connectivity issues have to do with Android Auto. Some users of Android Auto are reporting that media content is not displaying correctly, that their Nexus or Pixel phone is shown as "Paired", but there's no audio playing, and that the music is skipping, among other issues.

Some of the users reporting these problems have been on Android Oreo since the first developer preview and they claim that the bugs have been there ever since the first preview build.

Google has now began bug-hunting and is asking users on its product forums to submit the bugs they may have encountered by providing information about their car model and/or accessories that they've been using when the problem appears.
