After connecting my Bluetooth Headphones (JBL Free X, BT Version 4.2), media output doesn’t stream to the headphone, instead is still using the FP3+ speakers.
In the sound menu, output to JBL Free is chosen.
Steering apps like spotify nevertheless works via the headphones control buttons.
I can replicate the same behaviour with other headphones, Sony WH-CH500, e.g.
I restarted the phone multiple times and also did a factory reset.
Any help is appreciated.
Im having the same issue with sony WH1000xm3
strange because with my previous fairphone I did get it to work.
Exactly. So did and does still my FP2. And these headphones work literally with every other device in my household, old and new.
Quick question: are you by chance running /e/ on your phones or does it happen with the Fairphone stock ROM?
thank you Ingo,
Yes, Im running /e/
I was with my last fairphone too.
Then I didnt seem to have this issue though…
Ok, for /e/ it’s a FP3 specific bug of Android 10 that is close to being fixed: https://gitlab.e.foundation/e/backlog/-/issues/2036
Not sure when this fix will be released as an update to all users.
Same problem on the /e/ forum is here: https://community.e.foundation/t/bluetooth-headphones-not-working-on-fp3/23113?u=ingo_fp_angel
very helpful info.
Thank you for the hint!
Shipping the /e/ FP3+ with this bug already known is beyond stupid.
This better have irony tags.
Else this would be beyond laughable in the face of what a shipping operation entails, as well as what other bugs are out there in /e/, and as well as what can happen with OTA updates (hopefully only) while /e/ is still beta software.
As of tonight’s update the bug is fixed in /e/'s stable version.
I appreciate very much how some guys from /e/ reached out to me and soothed my slightly angry me on that issue.
I bought a Fairphone3+ with /e/ on it (android 10). All works fine, except for bluetooth. Everything connects like it should: Jabra 65t, Marshall headphones, Eneby 20 IKEA speaker, Panasonic car radio. A wide range of connections I’d say. It will connect, I can set it to send media to it (so it’s not the obvious setting) but the music still comes from the phone speaker, not from the device. Making a phonecall works, it is just sending music to bluetooth that doesn’t seem to work.
I’ve seen some other bluetooth issues with Android 10 and bluetooth, and sometimes also with FP3+ and bluetooth, but I don’t think I’ve seen this problem in particular. Or maybe I haven’t been looking long enough. Anyone?
