Re: Xperia XZ Dual (F8332) Bluetooth not working after Nougat 7.0 OTA update

I've been having the same issue like almost everyone since I upgraded to nougat. When I had marshmallow, I could connect my Bluetooth and share my contacts and media information with my car entertainment unit, but since the software update, i can't connect the Bluetooth and if I eventually connect, my contacts and media do not come up on my car unit. This is really frustrating as I have repaired my phone with companion for about 6 times now and there is still no changes. I'm really losing my interest in Sony. This problem seem like a Sony problem cos my partner uses Samsung with the latest software and her Bluetooth connects perfectly with my car. I called the support line and I was told to call my car company, so ridiculous. Even on the Sony head set that came with the Xperia xz, I can't control the volume or media content on the headset. It seems Sony do not read all these feedbacks cos most complains are related to Bluetooth issues and nothing has been done.

Re: Xperia XZ Dual (F8332) Bluetooth not working after Nougat 7.0 OTA update

I've received the Android 7.0 update yesterday. Both my Bluetooth earphones (Sony and Plantronics) can connect to my XZ (F8332), but the play controls are broken.

It cannot play, stop or skip tracks via the controls of the earphones. Volume control is working though. Tried re-pairing the earphones and restarting the phone, but it didn't work. Any advice to fix this issue?

I've just updated to 39.2.A.0.374 via Xperia Companion, but the play controls via Bluetooth earphones were still broken. Can't pause or skip tracks.

Re: Xperia XZ Dual (F8332) Bluetooth not working after Nougat 7.0 OTA update

@musician: have you ever tried to (automatically) connect your headphones during a restart of your phone? When I do it the headphone control work as before in Marshmallow. Just curious if its the same for you, as its surely no solution. 

btw: I posted some weeks ago that my problem haven been solved by a minor update. Unfortunately that has not been true...
