There has been a lot of reports and complaints regarding the Bluetooth connectivity issues in cars with the new Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The Android update came in Google Pixel, Nexus 6P, and Nexus 5X smartphone last year.
The in-car Bluetooth facility was causing a lot of problems for all these devices mentioned above. The issue was not a new one. It started immediately with the launch of the beta program for Android 7.1.1. Google fixed the problem, and the company will release it very soon.
Problem with in-car Bluetooth connection in Android 7.1.1 Nougat
Last year October, the Android 7.1.1 latest version was released. It was a developer version where the developers started reaching devices which included the Pixel, Pixel XL, Huawei Nexus 6P and the LG Nexus 5X. A lot of users who adopted the Nougat went to Google’s bug reporting forum about the issue of in-car Bluetooth connectivity.
It faced a software problem. The problem was a major one; it started from a loss in connection to complete connectivity failure. The users of Android 7.1.1 didn’t expect this. Even if the smartphones were connected, users were not able to make the hand’s free call. Some other users also faced a very hard time to connect the devices with in-car Bluetooth manually. Problems also included the short span connections.
The connections got automatically lost after some time. Also after you made a call, the Bluetooth connection was automatically lost when you disconnected the call.
In a threaded message, a Google developer confirmed in a threaded message, that this issue is no more now and it will be available in a future build of a status. It is called “FutureRelease.” But that message does not confirm a specific time frame for the release. We are assuming that this fix will launch through a small update on the devices of Google Pixel, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P smartphones that run on Android Nougat 7.1.1.
