Another major OS upgrade, another round of Bluetooth problems that Google curiously can’t seem to solve. If Android Oreo is a superhero, then Bluetooth is the supervillain it aims to defeat first and foremost.

A gang of Android Oreo users have been vocal about some issues involving disconnects and other general wonkiness over at Google’s support forums.

We typically have to wait quite a bit of time before Google musters a response, but the company has already caught wind of the issue and is currently taking feedback.

Google says they’re really only looking for information from folks who only started suffering Bluetooth issues immediately upon taking the upgrade to Oreo. Those not on Oreo or those who were already suffering Bluetooth issues before they updated to Oreo are encouraged to go through regular support channels.

Nexus users can leave their feedback here, while Pixel owners will want to go here. Google is looking for the following information where applicable:

  • Year/make/model of your car
  • Issue/symptoms
  • Brand of headphones
  • Issue/symptoms
Bluetooth Speakers
  • Speaker brand
  • Issue/symptoms

Be sure to include as much information as you can, and pray that it helps Google track down the annoyances once and for all.
