    Hey all just wondering if anyone else is having bluetooth issues with the s8. Just got mine yesterday and it connects to my car stereo just fine but for some reason it only picks it up as call audio only and does not let me play any media off of it. Anyone having similar issues and have a fix?

    My use case isn't quite the same as yours. But I can report that I've had no issues connecting to either my Gear S3 Frontier LTE (i.e. Samsung brand device) smartwatch, or my Beats Solo 3 (Apple device) headphones.

    Does your car have a AUX switch that connects via BT with your GS8? Does your vehicle have a list of approved devices? Did you try unbonding your old device?

    My AT&T GS8 is bonded to my wrist heart rate monitor, Bose Soundsport wireless earbuds, and my vehicle allowing calls and broadcast movies and YouTube.

    I have the same issue. I drive a 2013 Ford with Sync. my GS5 and GS7 both worked just fine. Now I can only make calls, no media.

    Wife has a Bluetooth device in her car and the media sounds distorted, haven't tried headphones yet. very UPSET, as I drive 12 hours a day and use my phone for media

    I'm having issues as well. it hooks up fine to my audi a8 but it won't connect to my receiver in my basement. High end sony 2016 receiver. Talk to text works like s*** is well. Hated my note 5 and I'm about to take this thing back-and switch to the iPhone.

    I have a 2012 Ford Focus with Sync and while the phone connected immediately, I have yet tried to play an media through it. Now I am curious and will have to try it.

    Just popped outside to my car and tested it. I successfully played music using Samsung's Music player as well as TuneIn Radio Pro.

    Go to a Ford dealer to see if there are any updates for your SYNC

    You should also be able to go to the SYNCmyride website and check for updates there.

    The phone works w/ certain devices. It works on my BT speakers, other cars but also no 2011-2013 kia/hyundai's w/ navigation. BT phone works, it shows name of first song while playing pandora (But never changes after first song), it will
    allow changing of tracks but no media audio option and audio always goes through phone speakers. Exact same thing the S7 and note7 did.

    This happened to me with with a Kenwood Bluetooth after-factory stereo I have installed in my vehicle. For some reason, in order to connect my music instead of "call audio only", i have to turn on my dual audio Bluetooth setting. I'm not sure if this is a qwirk with the phone or my stereo.

    I am having the same issue all my galaxy phones worked fine until the S8. In my 2006 BMW 750LI the phone connects then drops off. I had no problems connecting with my galaxy S4,5,6, and 7.

    I still use a 1st gen moto 360 and it won't pair with my S8+. It sees other devices in the area but not my phone.

    Same Bluetooth audio connect issue on my Verizon s8+. Calls connect but audio won't connect automatically on my 2005 Lexus and 2017 Mercedes. I'd have to force the connection thru and many times it won't. Love to hear if theres resolution for this or a future update fix coming out. Thanks
