Pixel 4xl drops audio over BT. Still connected. Headset controls work. Audio plays on phone speaker
1
I've been having more and more issues as time goes on.

My BT connectivity is creating increasing problems for me.

Audio comes through my wireless headset just fine.  Then for no reason, disconnect for a split second and glitches the phone.  Sometimes pauses the audio/video as a disconnect had been seen.  It seems to recognize that the headset is connected still, but it routes the audio to play through the speakers in the phone.  I have play/pause control still through my BT headset buttons.  I can switch between "play through phone speakers or play through device" but both play through phone speakers.

I've flipped back and forth between all sorts of dev tool options.  Tried different BT devices.  Spent hours researching.  Haven't found anything that's a permanent fix.
For years now my audio has also cut out on youtube when an ad pops on.  I have to pause the video and hit play and audio returns.

Is this a firmware glitch?
Does anyone have a fix?

Same exact situation here with my Pixel 3XL and my Bluetooth headset and my car. Issue was rare at first, now it's systematic everytime I use a Bluetooth device.

Same issue here!
Google Pixel 4.

Been experiencing this for 2-3 weeks now.
In the beginning it would happens some times, my AirPods pro is connected, and it states that it plays music through AirPods, but the sound is coming from the phone speakers.

Now, for that last 4 days, I cannot, at all, get music to play in my AirPods. But it still says it is connected!
My AirPods works fine on my computer.

I have reset Network settings on my phone. Did'nt help.

Well, that's insane. As soon as I uninstalled it the issue went away for me. Using Pixel 4 XL
