If you’re searching for the solution to Bluetooth issue on Android Oreo, then let me tell you, there’s no fix for now. However, Google says that it is looking into the delinquent situation. Google is collecting data regarding the issue. It also posted on both Pixel and Nexus forums for more information regarding the Bluetooth issues on Android O.

Google asked the Android Oreo users to categorize their feedback and include as much as information as possible. Besides, Bluetooth switching off as soon as it’s turned off (like issues seen in Nougat), some of the Bluetooth manifested audio issues are:

Android O Bluetooth IssuesAndroid Oreo users reported the Bluetooth issue in Google preview releases. The Android O users are disheartened that Google didn’t fix the issues before the final release. However, some users are experiencing completely different issue. Another issue reported in the Android Oreo update is: missing Spotify song information. Users say that the Spotify song information no longer shows itself.

Bluetooth has always wavered in Android. However, we all expect Google to fix the issue soon. Better late than never.

  1. I get an error message the the Bluetooth app has stopped working. Then asks if I want to restart the app. This happens regardless of rather I am connected to my Bluetooth headset or not.

    Headset: Toorun M26

  2. Bought a mx10 smart box with android 8.1 oreo installed but having opening Bluetooth problems and this making pairing with other devices impossible. Can you help?

  3. I recently had a Android OS update on T-Mobile. After the update on my LG Stylo 3 Plus phone I realized my phone no longer would recognize the BT of my 2013 Kia Rio let alone connect with it.

    Also I would toggle my WIFI icon(which had a line or hash mark through it now)and it would illuminate(turn on) for a few seconds and then turn off.

    I can tell you that when you stream music in your car or tether/hotspot(Wi-Fi)data to your laptop or other devices this is very disruptive.

    I HOPE. GOOGLE. GETS THIS WORKED OUT SOON. My phone almost seems like a paper weight now.

  4. android update installed and now my bluetooth will Not connect to my 2107 elantra work fine before the update must manually every time i get in the car.

  5. Hi,

    Since the update the bluetooth connectivity with the Samsung Gear Fit 2 is fluctuating.
    I have to re-pair more than once daily.
    Clearing the bluetooth cache didn’t help.
