Re: Bluetooth Audio

OK, my device seems to default to AAC for this particular headset I am using. it is possible that your device is not supporting AAC? You can tell as it says Streaming:AAC - not by what the toggle says.

 

What is the bluetooth device you are trying to use? Model number etc.

 

Then finally, what build are you using? I am on 50.1.A.5.59

Re: Bluetooth Audio

It's probably the device setting it back to SBC. It says Streaming: SBC even if I try to change it to something else.

 

The device is my vehicles Dodge Dart 2013 Uconnect 8.4 system. System is 50.1.A.5.59 and it was the update before this one that started the problems.

 

Additional things I've tried since original post. I've verified its not just Google play music by trying different apps all have the same issue. I've downloaded albums from Google straight to my device to verify it's not a data or network issue. I've tried an older version of Google play to make sure it also doesn't work. Still stuck with using aux. Nothing works.

Re: Bluetooth connecting issues on my car

Bluetooth issue after update- still got problems

I am unable to connect via bluetooth to the car. When I first got the phone in December it would pair but not connect. I searched for advice from both the O2 shops and Sony support forum, one of which suggested that I go into developer solutions and change the bluetooth version to an earlier version than the phone was set on. This was successful and the phone was able to connect to the bluetooth system in the car no problem. However, since the automatic software update in March the bluetooth problem has returned and I have been unable to resolve the issue. I have tried changing the bluetooth version, restarting the phone, deleting the previous pairing and stopping all app location access. Please can you help? This issue is very frustrating.

Re: Bluetooth connecting issues on my car

I also have this issue and its due to android 8.0

On internet, many people who have received this update are complaining about the same issue. Luckily, this issue has been resolved in android 8.1

 

Hope sony releases the update.

Call history not shared with car via bluetooth

Hi,

 

once I am connecting my Xperia XZ2 with my car the contact list as well as messages are being shared. The call history is not shared what is serious issue. It worked perfectly fine with my old Xperia Z. What could be the reason? Should I wait for a firmware update? Sony please advise.

Bluetooth connecting issues on my car

I had the same trouble with my XZ2. Bluetooth totally can not connect to my car. The old Sony XZ could do it very well. It showed incorrect pin code, but there is no a procedure to key pin code during connection. Really very disappointed. 

If the problem has been resolved in android 8.1, Hope Sony release the update soon. There is a software update in recent days, but still not resolve this problem. Sad.

Bluetooth issues with music/calls.

Having an annoying issue with bluetooth connected devices. I have bluetooth headphones paired with my my phone and everytime I play music or make a call, the sound will drop out every 20-30 seconds or so. I've restarted/reset my phone but still the problem persists. Everything else seems to work fine however this bluetooth issue is really annoying.

Re: Bluetooth issues with music/calls.

@H1R

 

Could you elaborate a bit more? 

 

when you say "everytime I play music or make a call, the sound will drop out every 20-30 seconds or so."

 

Are you saying that the music stop or the volume decrease?
