    I have a oneplus 8.
    And oneplus usb c earphones.

    When connecting to earphones to the device and listening to music,
    forwarding or previous song selection isn't possible.

    It is suppose to work by double or triple pressing but it doesn't.

    Everything else works fine (also without activating the OTG).

    Any ideas how to fix this issue?
    Or recommendations on which other usb c earphones to buy?

    Thank you

    Are you sure these USB C headphones are compatible with your OnePlus 8, because I found the following text within the OnePlus store app (product information USB C headphones):
    "Users with older OnePlus devices (3/3T/5/5T/6 ) must turn on OTG mode before using the Type-C Bullets (OTG Mode is accessible via Settings > System > OTG Storage. (The OnePlus 3/3T will receive call function support by the end of November. The OnePlus 5/5T/6/6T/7/7 Pro supports all functions.)".

    P.S. You've posted in the OnePlus 7 section, while your issue was OnePlus 8 related, just for future issues post in the correct section. That way you'll probably get your answers much faster 😉.

    First of all Thanks for the reply.
    Secondly, the earphones are compatible with oneplus 8 because they are oneplus earphones bought from oneplus. I didn't mention that before and yeah should have. That would probably save some thoughts and text.

    I accidentally posted in the wrong forum and noticed it after and then posted in the right one.

    Thanks again

    You're welcome, and I'm sure you'll post correctly when issues occur;).

    I don't want to sound smart, but where did you actually read about the compatibility between the OnePlus 8 and the Type C headphones? Just because they're 'both OnePlus products' doesn't give me the confidence it'll work, especially in your case.

    I've just installed the latest Oxygen OS update and the problem is fixed.

    Can rewind and forward songs
