Hello sailors,

I've currently that problem that i can't control any bluetooth music devices with my xperia xa2 plus (e.g. for Headsets and Earphones).
I mean with it simply i'm not be able to control the playback (next, prev, pause, etc.) with any headset. I really miss it. On my JP1 it works and has always worked.
But by xa2+ never.

Jolla dev-team, could you please have it on your Software function checklist?
Is it a bug? or not implemented too?

I'd like to control the QuasarMX app with my Headset again.
by xperia xa2 serie, It seems that it only works by the jolla media app .
By the jolla phone as i told, it works with many apps
Could you have a look on it ?
Please please please please

Devices which doesn't work with are the following (others people are welcome to add some on the list):
- Jabra revo wireless (has pre. pause, fwd, rwd, sound +/- => none works)
- divacore antipods (Has only Play/Pause, rwd, fwd, none works)
- Marshall Mid A.N.C Casque Bluetooth (has pre. pause, fwd, rwd, sound +/- => none works)
- Divacore nomad+ (Has only Play/Pause, rwd, fwd, none works)
- Logitech UE9000 (over bluetooth, not jack)

Edit 27.05.2019:
After a remark from rgrnetalk i made my search and was surprised that this theme is not really new...:
Found first this thread [Feature request] Enable automatic start of mpris-proxy
Which lead to this one
To this one
To this one

As we could see, that is an already known issue. Seems to be relative confuse, maybe it is a sign of a complexity.
I don't know what is formerly the usage of the mpris-proxy.
Is it the correct interface for it? or tinker-alternative.
I think we need first clarification.
And i tell me if it is an already know problem, why it is not appeared as known issue on the last release threads?
That is an awaited features, expected from a lots of people.
That should appear on the list as missed feature. Correct? or Not?

My Bose headset and my Sony MDR-AS600BT earphone work fine with my XA2 (regular, not Plus) and OS 3.0.3.

What is the problem exactly? Doesn't your XA2 find the music device, or cannot make a pair with it? Or is it that music playback fails (even if pairing worked)? Or that you cannot control the playback (next, prev, pause, etc.)?

How does not problem appear to you?

@jovirkku Hi & thank you very much for your fast reaction.
By me is simply the not be able to control the playback (next, prev, pause, etc.) with any headset.
I actualize my thread above

I'm using my XA2 with four different headsets, and doesn't have any problems.

I did have some problems having to re-pair every time I changed the headset, but in the latest OS version ( this has been solved.

I'm using the following heasdsets:



Philips SHB4000

Bluedio TF500

@Kim thank you for your feedback. May i ask with which app do you use?
I currently try to check with different app (something complex to do because all devices are not together in same place, and have not so much time).
Yes the re-pair is a little bit laborious, with is better, but could be more improved. Make sometimes some problems so that i should restart the wireless interfaces, or (rarely) the devices new start (today 1x)

@cemoi71 I primarily uses the std. media app, but some times also the phone app if the headset supports calls.
