Google Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X Experiencing Auto Bluetooth Issues after Android 7.1.1 Nougat Update

Android 7.1 Nougat

Many Google Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X were excited when Android 7.0 Nougat update finally made it to their devices early last month, however, little did they know that the update to the newer Android 7.1.1 Nougat will also come with its own flaws, just like it adds more flavor to the initial version 7.0.

From bootloop issues to battery drain problems – just about everything has been talked about in the most possible way with respect to this update. Many users of Google Nexus 6P and even the newer Google Pixel phones have previously reported of cases where their phones go off even when there is still enough juice in there. While Google had maintained that the issue has nothing to do with hardware, there is still no software update that has been made available specifically for the issue.

Prior to the battery issues on Google Nexus 6P, it appears that some users of the phone, alongside the midrange Nexus 5X, have been through a hard time connecting the phones to their cars via Bluetooth. As it seems, these issues only set it when they updated the two phones to the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat, but so far, Google hasn’t addressed the issue. As a result, some affected savvy users have already downgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat, which worked perfectly for them.

Apparently, some people are saying that this in-car Bluetooth issue has no effect on streaming media, but it only starts stuttering when making calls via the platform. One user even says that he tried everything, including rebooting the phone in safe mode, wiping the network cache and even resetting the Bluetooth settings – but nothing works so far.

In short, we are looking for a fix from the server side – which can only be effected by Google. When this update will be coming out is unknown, but given that this issue has been here for months now, the search engine giant should take care of it in the coming software updates.
