    I came from an iPhone transferred my music over... Have used Android phones many times set Player Pro back up and in my car I get nothing. When I tried Google music nothing, but here is the thing. When I listen to podcasts on Google music or used Spotify it worked....what am I doing wrong? Thanks!

    Are you not getting sound or meta data?

    My apologies if I don't fully understand your question but I get sound only through Spotify via Bluetooth and when playing my podcasts through Google music but there is no sound from my music coming out. Hope that helps. Thanks for your assistance!

    Meaning are you not getting sound on some apps, or just the artist info on screen of car.

    I'm having a similar issue. I can play my transferred music on the Pixel 2 through the phone speakers using Google Play Music. But once I connect my phone to bluetooth (either my Bose speaker or my car), I hear nothing. The phone display tells me the song is still playing, but no sound from anywhere - phone speakers or Bluetooth device. But if I stream music via Deezer and connect to either my Bose speaker or my car, I can hear it through those devices.

    With my car, I have to pair it as a music player. If I pair it as a phone I can't hear music. But if I pair it in the music section of the setup, both the music and phone functions work.

    You probably know this but I throw it out just on the very small chance that it might apply...

    There are different volume "memories" for each output type. So, you could conceivably have your volume set at 50% when playing through your Pixel's speakers but at 0% when connected to Bluetooth.

    Second, open Bluetooth settings, tap on "More Settings" then tap the gear icon alongside your Bluetooth speakers, earbuds, car, whatever, and make certain that "Media audio" is actually enabled.

    I have the same exact issue, I noticed yesterday. It says "no media" but the phone functions work just fine.

    You aren't also using Android Auto, are you?

    If I recall correctly, you cannot use Bluetooth audio and Android Auto simultaneously.

    Thanks. I checked and Media Audio is enabled. Hopefully I'll be able to figure this out since I do like to listen to my music a lot in the car.

    No Android Auto here but definite Bluetooth issues , this is well-known on Google's forum to, so hopefully we'll have it resolved with the update, looks like we have high expectations for November's updates

    In my car streaming Spotify via Bluetooth to the car's head unit no problem sounds great, receive phone call, car rings, phone rings, watch Ring's S3 Frontier, can answer on phone, can answer on watch, unable to answer on car, car searching for phone unable to locate phone, music pauses when phone rings or in use, turn off watch, able to answer phone Thur car's steering wheel controls or head unit, or place call this way
    Also when I turn off my watch then my phone's battery and signal strength will also appear on cars head unit, if the watch is on it only displays the Bluetooth symbol

    I can hear music in my car, but do not see track information on the car screen. 2014 Camry. Also, if I use steering wheel controls to change track, music sometimes stops and I have to disable/enable Bluetooth to make it work again. My previous phone (iPhone 7) worked with zero issues.

    I can play music on my head unit without Android Auto (bluetooth only) and it shows the song / album art (if available).

    I hope that's the case. I waited a year for Google to fix the horrific Pixel BT "skipping" issue. I lost a year of listening to music on my phone. Despite providing copious input to Google, they never moved off the dime. I walked away from my Pixel and Pixel 2 pre-order mostly b/c of living through the promise of Google addressing a problem for a year and never delivering.

    Hopefully, that's not the case this time around.

    Reboots have corrected every issue I have had with BT(on this p2xl). That goes for every iPhone and every other phone I have owned as well.

    I have a 2016 Honda Civic. The only issue I had was it took me about 8 or 9 times to get the device to pair. Once that was over, no issues. My car is similar to one of the comments above...I have to enable both the phone and media for it to do both. Most of the time everything happens on it's own. Only very seldomly do I have to turn off Bluetooth, then turn it back on for it to do both. Pixel 2, Verizon.

    Okay All - sorry to say I am having to return my Google Pixel 2 XL! I've had an issue with the original Pixel XL for months trying to get it to stay connected to my Honda Accord. I've sent in bug reports to Google's Tier 3 tech support to help them find the fix. To date, no fix, so I decided to try the Pixel 2 XL (different manufacturer) in hopes it would work. NOPE! Same exact Bluetooth connection issue with the Pixel 2 XL as with the original Pixel XL. I've tried two other phones on my car and they connect with no issue at all and stay connected. Hell, my Windows Phone even alerts me there is an incoming text message and asks me if I want it to read it to me, then asks me if I want to reply. And yet, Google can't even get the phones to stay connected to the car!? This, plus the blue screen tint, plus the popping noise when on a phone call on speakerphone. I've had it! I'm returning the phone and getting a Samsung Note 8! If you drive a Honda, I highly recommend you do the same! Google really needs to get their stuff together! This Pixel release is a complete DISASTER!

    Report back on how the N8 BT works for you.

    For me, after a year of Pixel BT woes, it's just awesome to have stable, reliable, great sounding BT again. The N8 is killer IMO.

    How you describe your N8 is literally my Pixel 2. I use BT exclusively for my media at work, on the go, and in my truck. I have yet to run into one hiccup. It works the same as my S8+ did that I had before the P2.
