When I play any android game, the audio is not passed through to my stereo bluetooth headset (which I've connected to my home stereo system for playing music, etc). When I turn off the headset or un-pair it, android audio works fine through Jolla's internal speaker.

Could Jolla folks please pass through the audio also to bluetooth?

Edit 2016.07.29 by c.la: This happens on Jolla 1 with voip apps like skype. No issues if I call using the wired headphone (earplug and mic), that is weird. If the wired headphone works, bluetooth audio and mic should work too out of the box.

Last time I tried this, more than one year ago, skype did work with bluetooth headsets.

Maybe it depends on the game? Or maybe the headset is registered as telephony headset and not a loudspeaker? It works fine for me when using Android Spotify and the Nokia Play 360 Bluetooth speaker.

I've tried cut the rope and angry birds star wars, with Nokia BH-111 stereo bluetooth headphones. Native applications play the sound for me through bluetooth perfectly. Occasionally the headphones go into voice call -mode and I need to re-pair them to get back the great stereo sound.

Tried it again today, with first "farm invasion" and then again angry birds star wars. Both worked. Don't know what was happening before. It could be something as embarrassing as the volume being too low, or maybe not. Anyway, seems to work and I don't think I've consciously changed anything here :)

Tried it with Navfree for Android and a bluetooth speaker - no problems.
