With each and every software update, there comes fixes to old issues and subsequently, new issues arise as well.

Many Google Nexus 6P, Pixel and Pixel XL users have been having issues with Bluetooth connectivity for quite some time now. There are those who started experiencing these connectivity issues before updating to Android 8.0 Oreo while others only started experiencing the same issues after updating to the new OS.

Well, according to Google, there is a solution, but not all affected users of the Google Pixel and Nexus 6P devices are covered. Apparently, those who started experiencing Bluetooth connectivity issues after updating to the new Android 8.0 Oreo are the only ones covered by the new fix and it comes courtesy of the latest Android security patch for the month of October.

It is not the first time that Google Pixel and Pixel XL are having Bluetooth connectivity issues. In fact, this has remained to be one of the most annoying issues of the Pixel and Pixel XL, with almost every software fix the company sends out not completely solving the problems. After the recent Android 8.0 Oreo update appeared to make things worse, the search engine is trying to make things work better with the new security patch.

So, if you thought there’s really no particular reason to download and install the latest Android security patch on your Google Pixel or Nexus 6P phone, well, there you have it.

Make sure you point out in the comments below if your Google Nexus 6P, Pixel or Pixel XL phone has been cured of Bluetooth issues after updating to the latest monthly security patch.
