I know that my issue is common for my Sony Xperia Z1 Compact in pair with portable speaker JBL Charge
but I'm pretty sure that the point is in bluetooth drivers or in bug in OS Android.
Is there any chance to make a patch to solve this issue?
After my Z1 compact successfully paired to JBL Charge I can't control volume via bluetooth. I can pause,stop,play,FF,RW songs, but I can't control volume.
Buttons of volume on the speaker itself "+" and "-" work fine.
Also if I connect my mobile with JBL Charge via wire 3.5 jack - I am able to control volume using mobile.
Please rise a bug ticket for that in order to fix this issue in the next Android update.
p.s. I'm using the latest 4.4.4 Android
\thanks in advanse!

I have heard that it's not possible to adjust volume on some speakers when using Android 4.4.
I'm not sure but i think it has to do with how the volume control for bluetooth works in Android 4.4. As i understand it, the volume control in the phone is the same as the one in the speaker/headset with Android 4.4. The volume control on the speaker/headset and the volume control in the phone are not two different controls anymore.
There's already an issue raised here: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=62790 about this.

I just bought a Z5 which has Android 5.1.1 and even this has the same issue. Can't control volume of speakers over bluetooth while other phones with same version of android can. I think it is a software issue from Sony's side. Please fix it asap
