Musicapp autostart prpblem after Android 9

Hello, I used my phone for music streaming while driving my cars.

 

The Phone Was automaticaly connectinh to cars bluetooth and start my music application,with help from tasker. 

 

After Android 9 upgrade The app wont start when screen is locked. .

So I have to take up The Phone and unlock it everytime I start The car. 

 

I have tried diffrent apps to start The music app but with The same issue. So there seems to be a block for autostarted apps in Android 9?

Try clearing bluetooth cache & data, see if that helps.

My car manual advises me to do so after a phone update.

I've tried that. The problem still exist and I have been testning this alot with diffrent bluetooth devices and apps. It have been like this ever since android 9. 0 (about 3 months) I've had some hope for a fix by now...

 

I've tried with countless of app autostarters like tasker and smart connect.

But no app wont start when the screen is locked anymore.

I must admit I haven given it up some time ago.

On my X with Android 7 it did connect and start, on Oreo it didn't and now I'm on Pie and I gave up after 2 attempts.

The solution I used on Oreo was using MacroDroid (like Tasker) and talk to my device to ask for music.

It started Spotify.

Spotify however makes its own choices and I didn't always get the music I wanted to listen to.

Anyway, there was music.
