Some Pixel 2 users are reporting Bluetooth connectivity issues

The complaints don't stop.

Every smartphone, even flagship ones, can be susceptible to bugs, quality control issues, hardware malfunctions, you name it.

Sometimes I would not be able to start playback at all. Tried safe mode, reset all BT connections on the car - no difference....
