Re: Android pie , xz premium update headphone issue

It's called Lesser audioswitch

 

It's on the play store  

 

But its still a giant pain.  As you have an extra step now  

 

To answer the others it's any audio no matter what source. 

 

And nothing is sideloaded  only official updates and downloads from the store

Thank you and thank you again kind sir, you have made me most happy. This was one of those ironic kicks in the teeth when it happened as I had a lot of time etc invested in the audio of this phone and you have taken that pain away. Big love.

Very same issue here:

Device: Sony XZ1 Compact G8441

Build version: 47.2.A.8.24

Headphones are working with Lesser AudioSwitch.

 

Any other workaround?

Re: Android pie , xz premium update headphone issue

Same exact problem as is described here. I've experienced similar problems before, but things seemed to be fine for a while. With the Android 9 update they reappeared.

I've already thrown away perfectly fine earplugs, so I'm hesitant to purchase new headphones until I'm sure this would solve the problem, but with cheapo no-brand headphones the problems persist.

The last time I had these problems the trick was to disable smartconnect, but that app is not on my phone anymore.
