Bluetooth Issues with Android Tidal App
Since upgrading my HTC10 to Android 8.0 I have been unable to stream lossless music from the Tidal app to my car over Bluetooth. The next track will play for something like 2 seconds before "pausing". The car sees the track as paused but the track appears to be still playing on the phone. If, on the phone, I jump a track to the middle, the music playing through the car will also jump but the duration displayed on the car's display will not also jump.
All other music apps are fine, including Google Play (mp3 and flac) and Spotify.
The Tidal app was fine when on Android 7.
The car is a 2016 Skoda Octavia, so has a standard VW media system.
Any ideas anyone? As there are four parties at play here (Android, HTC, VW, Tidal) no-one would appear to take responsibility.
I have a similar issue in my Outback. When I start the car it. will recognize my iPhone, start playing Tidal for a couple of seconds and then go to pause. To get music playing again I simply hit the call button on my steering wheel to make a call, then hit the hang up button and the music will start playing. Annoying but an easy enough work around. I'm sure at some point another update will resolve this issue. Hope this helps.
