Re: Android 9 problems with Bluetooth

I have a different phone (pixel 2) with the similar issues. Still very unreliable android 9 BT implementation. What works for me is to change bluetooth AVRCP protocol version In developers settings and restart the phone. No matter the version, in seems like the change sitelf clears some garbage. Then everything connects for a while. But you have to change it occassionaly to fix it. Total shame on google developers to produce such.

Try this

Goto settings → apps & notifications → tap app info → tap 3 dots upper right corner → tap show system → scroll to Bluetooth → tap Bluetooth → tap Storage → Tap Clear Cache & Clear data

Restart device and report back if it helped you solve your problem.

Hello strampke, i followed the steps and It not work. I really think that the problem is the Android Pie, until the devices that were paired before the update are not working.

 

Do you have another suggestion??

 

Thank you in advanced.

I do not think that the problem is with Android Pie. I updated successfully when it was released and I have had no problems with Bluetooth ... or any other things on my phone. It is running smoothly and there have been no problems.
