Bluetooth Issues after accepting 8.0 Update

Hey All,

Some of you have been reporting Bluetooth issues after accepting the latest OTA update, Android 8.0 Oreo. We'd like to get some additional information so we can look into this more.

If you are experiencing issues since the 8.0 update, please include the following info (depending on where your particular issue falls):

Car/Auto
  • Year/make/model of your car 
  • Issue/symptoms
Headphones
  • Brand of headphones
  • Issue/symptoms
Bluetooth Speakers
  • Speaker brand
  • Issue/symptoms
Feel free to include any other relevant information as well. I am going to start compiling patterns and I'll be reaching out to many of you privately for bug reports.

Thanks!

Note - This thread is not for Bluetooth issues that might be happening before the Android 8.0 update. If you have not yet received the OTA update, please refrain from posting in this thread until you have.

Huawei Nexus 6p : Running Android Oreo 8.0 - I'm having issues with all of my Bluetooth devices and headphones .. I don't have a car, but I'm sure it's worth looking into ...
Bose , Bumpboxx , Soundboks 2 , DiamondBoxx XL , JBL , Samsung, Nexus, Dre Beats, LG .. just a list of my Bluetooth headphones and speakers connected to my Nexus 6P
" Skipping and Clipping sounds " like a record or CD that has a scratch on it or something type of sound ..
That's the best I can describe my personal experiences ..
Please Fix .. ( this problem doesn't exist with Android 7.1.2 ..

Bluetooth for telephone connects and works as normal, however media audio will not connect at all. Removing and readding the device doesn't seem to help the issue.

Audio will play but every 20 minutes (approx) there are short skips in the music that lasts for about 1 or 2 seconds. I use Google Play Music to stream downloaded albums or I stream over mobile data.

This Issue is already present in 7.1.2

Currently running on an Nexus 5X with a Polar M200, the bluetoothconnetion is lost after a couple of days and only a reboot can fix it for the next couple of days.

Both stereo displays now show "unknown artist" or"unknown album" instead of the track data that used to appear before the 8.0 update.
