    Default HTC One (M8): Bluetooth streaming skipping beats.

    Every song will skip very briefly a couple times. Two different BT speakers. Hopefully just a software thing. Anyone else?
    Haven't factory reset yet and I won't until I unlock/root. (Get my hands on a damn PC)
    Soooo yeah...

    I use power amp for music the bluetooth streaming in my car is fine.
    I did have skipping the other day but that must have been the mp3s because it hasn't done it on any other tracks.

    I had that happen once using music from Google music player. I just shut Bluetooth off and back on and it was fine. No more skipping

    That's been happening to me too, though not sure if its a BT issue or the phone audio, as it has happened twice while using the phone speakers.

    This has happened to me while streaming Hulu, music, and pocketcasts over BT, and theb2 times it happened over the phone speakers I was using pocketcasts.

    Also it happens at random, sometimes it does it every couple of minutes and other times it won't do it at all. Very strange, but probably a software thing so hopefully it will get fixed soon.

    Yeah that's kinda how it is for me too. And it is with different apps too. I've used spotify, pandora, and beats music and it happened with all of them. So I'm betting it is a software bug because I've had this same issue on my note 2 and it was fixed with a different ROM. Its just annoying right now.

    And I haven't had it happen through the phone speakers.

    I have this problem regularly streaming music from the Google Play app via Bluetooth to my Chevy Volt. It skips so badly it's utterly unusable. I aubergine tried deleting the pairing in both ends and repairing, restarting the phone and the radio, turning Bluetooth on and off, and opening/closing the music app on the phone.

    Nothing helps.

    But oddly, after doing nothing different, the streaming works fine. I'm pretty sure it's the HTC and not my car because I streamed music from a Samsung Galaxy S4 for six months and never once had this problem.

    Mine still skips a lot with Bluetooth streaming. It must be a software thing.

    Mine did this the first drive after pairing the phone with my car, and has not done it since (4 days).

    Mine has been doing this, too. I've got mine paired up with a 2013 Camaro SS and it seems like every couple of days I have to turn off the phone and turn it back on for it to stream without skipping. However, today when I did that it didn't stop it from skipping so I just gave up trying to listen to Google Play Music on my way home. Definitely a software bug and I wonder if the new update that's coming out that includes extreme power saver mode will fix it.

    It's ok now but every couple of days it happens again. The fix is...well, I have no idea. I just don't listen to Bluetooth and then try again the next day and it works fine.

    Bluetooth skips for me too. Also noticed the phone skipping while using headphones - I've noticed it while using Poweramp and Play music.

    I've had it skip like maybe two or three times total through headphones. And it was even less noticeable, so maybe it was just me.

    Happens to me too and I realized when my pebble watch is connected it would do skip. As soon as I disconnect my pebble every thing worked fine.

    Had the phone for about 9 days now. I have it synced to my 2012 Lincoln which has the MS Sync and the THX II sound system. The car is the only place where I listen to music via the Bluetooth and I've not experienced any of the skipping problems related above. I suspect that the interruptions are being caused by some app that is updating for syncing. That just my guess. I also have to say that the sound I'm getting is very good, the thx II system can be pretty unforgiving about poor quality source. I mainly use mp3's that are 320 bit files and the phone/car have no issues playing those and doing a really great job of it.

    The sound quality has been great for me as well except for the skipping. And what do you mean updating for syncing?

    I'm guessing the thinking is some app is running in the background interrupting the music which should not be a factor but may be the problem. Never had this in any other phone I have owned.

    Ah OK. That seems plausible. And that would just be a software bug so hopefully fixable soon.

    That is what I was guessing at and a guess is all it was. I'm just not having that issue but I don't run a whole lot of apps and I keep facebook and other apps that sync on a regular basis set at low frequency updating in order to conserve battery and because they're just not that important to me.

    Interesting, I do use a Pebble but I haven't tried streaming without the Pebble connected because it worked fine on all my other devices. How many people that are experiencing the skipping are using one?

    That's really interesting. I use a pebble. The next time I have the problem, I will turn off the pebble and see what happens.
