The Google Nexus 6P might no longer be the flagship offering it was a couple years ago, but the phone is still one of the best to have come from the search giant over the years.

Made by Huawei, the Google Nexus 6P is only one of the few devices that have been updated to the latest Android 8.1 Oreo, which started rolling out earlier this month. This is a stable build of Oreo and with it, users of the Nexus 6P get stability improvements alongside other refinements to features they received with the original update to Android 8.0 Oreo.

As devices grow older, different performance issues start showing up. Over time, many users of the Google Nexus 6P have complained about connectivity issues related to Bluetooth. This has especially been the case when using the phone to listen to music in cars. Some users have reported cases of having no audio at all and in order to get the connection through, some have been forced to switch between radio and Bluetooth and in other cases, no information was being displayed on the track, among other issues.

If this has been you, the latest update to Android 8.1 Oreo is something you might want to get right away, just in case you are yet to download and install it. After 8.1, it seems all of these issues are no more, which should be great news for many Google Nexus 6P users out there who have been experiencing Bluetooth connectivity issues.
