Ever since the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in October, tens of thousands of various Nexus LTE devices have experienced Bluetooth issues with whatever device they have tried connecting to.
But yesterday, Google’s Android development team finally announced that the Bluetooth bug has been fixed, and that the issue will be resolved with the release of “a future build.”
When this new new build will actually be released was not announced though, but it is expected to take months. Hopefully it will come before the Android 6.1 update, since Google has been aware of the problem since early October. The latest release was the Android 6.0.1 version that came out in December 2015, which brought on 184 new emojis. Not exactly the right priority.
Some of the problems that have been faced by owners of the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 phones, but also Nexus 7 and Nexus 9 LTE tablets after the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, have been poor Bluetooth connection, audio disappearing when connected to loudspeakers, info missing on contacts, phones disconnecting their Bluetooth connection, and similar problems.
All of which can create an intolerable situation like when someone tries to make a phone call from their car and the phone disconnects in the middle of the conversation, and then even dials up again by itself at some point later.
