My bluetooth worked perfetly in my car before the 8.1 update, but since the update the handsfree phone works but listening to music/audio does not work at all.
Since Android 8.1.0 update I've got distorted audio on some bluetooth devices - but some are OK
Car and Bose headset is OK - while my helmet intecom (Cardo Scala rider Packtalk) and others is distorted - really annying.
Will test same set on another Nokia 8 to see if it will be any point in swoping the phone in an new one...
Also annoying that it is not possible to choose other Audio Codecs in developer options.
Update - Just tested with another Nokia 8 device - and same issue - contacted Nokia Phone care again - and now it was identified as a "Known issue" and that HMD was working on fixing the problem. - Really hope they will... Hate to have to go back to my Moto X Style for motorcycle season...
Unfortunately this is a big enough problem that I think I'll have to change to a different phone before it gets fixed. It used to work before the update, my wifes iphone works, my sons Motorola works. I really wanted to come back to Nokia but they've blown it. Shame.
Does anybody know if "Nokia" (HMD Global) monitors this forum at all? - I've never seen any rep from HMD/Nokia here...
I (My son) Also had a problem with bluetooth no sound Coming out at all in both our car radios. I just go the the app manager and showed the systems apps. Go to the bluetooth app erased all data and started all over again with parring. Now the bluetooth sound works. I only tested this with a bluetooth headset and a bluetooth audio out adapter
