Back in Android 9, the option would provide instant feedback as you selected an option and would keep your selected option saved until you disconnected your Bluetooth device.

In Android 10, selecting the option does nothing and simply going to the app drawer will reset the option back to default. It resets with or without any music playing and simply never changes the default behavior when it comes to the bitrate.

Is there a different way to manually select the playback quality for the LDAC codec or a way to fix this issue?

Seeing as this is quite a usability bug, especially for users with phones that have no headphone jacks and may have spent a decent amount of Bluetooth audio gear that supports LDAC, I don't think this is something that should be overlooked, regardless of the location of the setting.

Hi guys, 

Same issue appeared on Xiaomi Mi 9 with the recently installed Android 10. And I believe I have just found the solution. 

In Developer Options menu, close to LDAC quality selector, there are two options available: Bluetooth Audio Sample Rate and Bluetooth Audio Bits Per Sample. After setting max sample rate (96.0 kHz) and high bit rate (24 or 32 bits per sample), I've got streaming optimized for audio quality turned on automatically.

Looks like this is the end of several weeks research. Hope this helps for Pixel 3 XL as well.

Cheers,
Oleg

Hi Oleg
The issue discussed here is regarding the LDAC Codec Playback Quality a.k.a choosing the kbps transfer rate. Back in Android 9, you could select between Best Effort/Optimised for Connection/Balanced/Audio Quality. In Android 10, this is broken and it seems Google is ignoring this as this falls under Developer Settings.
