    During the LTE outage yesterday I learned that my BT streaming also does not work. I have a Samsung Galaxy S8 running Oreo and have no problem in any of my other cars. It will stream a second or less of audio and then pause. Restarting the song will only get another second or so of music before it pauses again. Does anyone else have this issue?

    I have the same problem on my Galaxy S8+ but it happened to me after a phone update instead of anything with the car.

    I got it to play by hitting play on the center console rather than from the phone.

    I have the same problem, sporadically, with my iPhone X. The workaround is also what Gatorguy described.

    I have 14.2.
    No such issue, except my music player is set to pause on connection/disconnect of devices, so it's best to press play on car display, rather than Android device.

    Recent updates provided some of the new high quantity BT profiles. We all know how crappy Apple is when it comes to obeying standards. So your best bet may be to use a player that can force a specific connection type... And force it back to A2DP (If Apple allow for such control)

    Ande: I have an Android so I don't have to worry about Apple's refusal to play well with others. Thank you for the suggestion however.

    Everyone else: I tried to hit play on the console instead of the phone and had the same result. I will try again and report back tomorrow. Thanks everyone for the input.

    As an update, I had to hit play on the center console several times but did get it to work finally. Would not work from my phone no matter what I did. Thank you everyone for the assistance.

    I'm on 2018.14.2 and have not noticed any change in the BT streaming behaviour. The car does sometimes lose sight of the phone's media but it did this before the Tesla upgrade. When it does this, I can fix it by pressing play on the phone's music player or by disconnecting/reconnecting BT. (I never have problems with BT for telephone use - I can always make or receive calls)

    Same issue here. I have a iPhone 8 Plus. On firmware 2018.16. The song only plays for a second then stops. It doesn't matter if I press play on the console or not.

    Wish I could force an update to 2018.18.2

    If I take it into my service center, can they force it?
