What exactly is this  "Safer bluetooth handling."?

The "Safer Bluetooth Handling" has created problems that didn't exist before.

Right after connection to my car unit the audio sistematically fails twice for one or two seconds before stabilizing.

Also the track information sent to the car display sometimes works sometimes not.

 

All of this was working normally on the former version.

Can you, please, check that?

 

Best regards,

Paulo.

The Christmas snow globe effect is cute. How does one turn it off?

It's just for Christmas week. Unfortunately you can't turn it off... unless you change the date in your phone to next week as it'll stop after this week.

How do you set up spotify to play via bluetooth in a car? I've paired my phone to make calls etc but I can't figure out how it recognises and plays Spotify, I've only just signed up to premium so I haven't looked into it in too much depth yet, just tried this morning before driving to work. I have a Samsung GS 4 and a Vauxhall astra if that makes a difference?

Check your Android settings in Bluetooth if you tap the cog next to your paired device it should show you the tyes of connections available. Make sure that ' Media Audio' is ticked.

 

You also need to ensure that your stereo supports A2DP which is the protocol used by Android to stream 2 channel media. I suggest checking your car stereo manual to see how to stream music from a bluetooth device... i.e. which input to select (if it is possible). Some stereo's only allow voice and not media.

I too have experienced random Bluetooth issues that did not occur before the latest update, just as Paulo.

Is there an ETA to reasolve or rollback?

 

Thanks,

Scott
