Are you having issues connecting Bluetooth devices to your Nougat device? You’re not alone


Every time a new version of Android is released, it seems we find little problems that weren’t around before the update. The latest issue to be making its round seems to be in regards to connecting your Nexus 5X or Nexus 6P to Bluetooth devices on Android Nougat even though it used to work on Android Marshmallow.

There are a few users who have reached out to the Nexus Help Forum looking for answers as to why their devices won’t connect to Bluetooth any longer or the Bluetooth controls won’t work at all. There doesn’t seem to be a solid fix for this, but there are a few things you can try to get things working as normal.


One user downgraded to Android Marshmallow, paired the devices they wanted to connect to, and then updated to Android Nougat without performing a Factory Reset. Another user had to boot their Nexus 6P into Safe Mode then connect to the devices before booting into the device normally.

This problem doesn’t seem like its super-widespread but there were reports of similar issues plaguing devices when updating to Android Marshmallow. Maybe Google will release a fix in a future update, but for now, just try out the different methods mentioned in the Help Forums to get things back up and running again.

Are you having these issues? Let us know in the comments below and whether you were able to fix the issue.
