No Media sound via car Bluetooth (BMW)

    Hi all.

    Had OP3T for a few months now and need help desperately with this problem I am encountering with my new BMW car.

    Very frustratingly, I am unable to get Bluetooth media to play through the car from my OnePlus 3T phone.

    Calls work fine through Bluetooth connectivity with the car system. Any media playback, app etc. does not work at all though. Yet the phone recognises it's connected and you can skip tracks etc. from the car interface - just no sound!

    OnePlus seem pretty useless on offering a solution. Surely the wise community can advise me there's a fix or workaround..

    Really appreciate the help against this head ache! Can't face going back to trailing AUX cables out the cabin!!

    Many thanks for help.

    Are you sure your car even supports media streaming? Some older cars only support bluetooth headset mode and not media streaming.

    This happens in my BMW as well (exact same - phone works fine, but no audio when playing music etc.).

    Now here's a story. When I first got my OP3T it worked - then after a phone update it stopped working (this was last year sometime). Then another update a few months later and it was fine again. Just installed the latest update last month - and now it's stopped again!

    So it's some interaction with something in the OP3T sofware and BMW cars bluetooth system. I came here to open a support request but just checking to see if if was just me this time. Guess not.

    it happens on my OnePlus 3 too . while in the middle of audio streaming, it just stops but tensions connected .

    usually reconnecting solves or for me

    Reconnecting doesn't solve anything for me; nor does
    disconnecting and all different permutations of removing and re-adding devices either.

    Resetting hasn't even worked.

    I also visited dealership and tried Bluetooth experiment in another vehicle to exclude that it was my car causing the problem. The same problem persisted.

    Have contacted OnePlus, who say they will be working on an update. Sounds like palming off and having to deal with it indefinitely until a minor miracle occurs..

    Do people know if the OP5 avoids this issue?

    Musmuris, so do we think reverting to a previous software update on our phone could fix the issue?

    Same pb for me since last update (few weeks before).
    BMW S2 grand Tourer.
    I had a similar pb at the begining that was solved by a OS update.
    OP 3T is Good smartphone but this issue is a good reason to switch to another phone like Samsung S8 ...

    Hi all, thought I would post as I have the same issue. 2016 5 series bmw. One plus 3t. UK.

    Audio streaming was perfect until last update about 3 or 4 weeks ago. Calls still work fine.

    Plex, Spotify, amazon, you tube etc. All say playing but just get silence.

    Tried clearing cache for Bluetooth.
    Tried clearing cache partition.
    Tried un pairing and re pairing phone.

    Nothing fixing it.

    My hope is the imminent oxygen OS update fixes it for me. Hopefully bit too long to wait.

    first he said "new"
    and second, yes the car can act as BT Audio device,
    and third, this problem have many BMW owners
    (me too, 2016 model)
