    My Bluetooth earbuds have been performing flawlessly with my Pixel 3 and I recently updated my phone yesterday. It was an Android 9 update. Now, this morning, my earbuds keep disconnecting from my phone and can't even stay connected for 10-15 seconds. They're fully charged and I even re-paired them. For all I know, it's a coincidence and my Earbuds may just be kicking the can already and I need better ones, but this didn't happen until I updated my phone last night. Anyone else having the same problem after this update or do I need to get a new pair of earbuds?

    Same thing happened to me between my Pixel 3 and my Gear S3 watch. Constant connect and disconnect. Restarting both devices seems to have fixed it for me.

    Fortunately for me, the update seems to have fixed some issues. My car (Acura) and my Plantronics Legend did not play well together prior to the update. Now, both are working as expected. My Sammy Gear Sport watch is also fine with the update.

    I always restart my phone twice after an update, the pixels no longer have the option to wipe the cache partition in Android 9, but restarting them now has a similar effect. So far I haven't had any issues ;-)

    Try adjusting the AVRCP version from 1.4 to 1.3 under developer options for Bluetooth. Then do a hard reset by holding the power button until it resets.

    Had the same issue where Bluetooth was working with my new pixel 3 xl last week and then suddenly topped this week with other older Bluetooth devices also connecting and disconnecting every several seconds (my Tune2air device}.

    Reverting to 1.3 fixed everything.

    I had to re-pair two devices (car and one set of earbuds). Everything else like my Fitbit and other speakers worked fine. Bizzare.

    I'm not on a pixel (note 9) but after my pie update I noticed increased battery drain.

    Turned off bluetooth and battery drain issues went away. Anyone noticing increased battery drain with their Pixel?
