I'd had this issue before on my m7 with Pandora. Are you guys using adaway? If so, disable it and try again, it should go away

Hi guys,

Resurrecting this thread. I am having skipping/stuttering issues with my phone when streaming using Spotify over bluetooth A2DP.
I've tested this on 3 different bluetooth devices (Volvo, Belkin and another bluetooth speaker).

The problem is very annoying, once the screen goes off, music would slightly pause every 20-30 seconds.
This happens when using Spotify and TuneIn Radio.. so I'm pretty sure it's not an application problem.

Anyone else having the same problem? I'm running 4.4.3 - 2.07.980.2..
Also, I'm pretty sure this only started happening after the latest update from HTC.

[UPDATE] I've tried doing some tests with turning wifi - OFF and I did not experience any sound/music skips during this morning commute. I will see how this goes in the next few days.

I'm using an app that starts playing music as soon as I connect to my cars Bluetooth. Luckily this app also provides "wifi off on connect"

Gonna give this a try. Really hope this fixes the audio drops. Hate it.

So from one day with Wifi off I can definitely tell it doesn't drop audio on Bluetooth streaming anymore.

So turn your Wifi off to fix the m8 😀

Glad it works for you as well, this has fixed the problem for me most of the time. I use the Trigger app to turn off wifi when bluetooth connects.

On another issue which I don't think is related to the above, on my Volvo at random times, I still have severe stuttering issues to the point that you almost can't tell what music is playing. I've been having this since day 1 with the M8 and not from recent fw upgrade as above. I'm not sure whether this is Spotify or the bluetooth stack tho.

Nevertheless, any of the blueooth issues were something I never experienced with Samsung Galaxy S3, Xperia Z or any other phones. HTC!!, are you listening!?!

I have the same problems connecting to my Arcam rBlink at home with my M8. Music dropouts every 20-30 secs. Streaming from my sons M7 is flawlessly.
Stopping Wifi makes it slightly better but is no option since I want to use spotify over wifi.
Could it be a problem with a low bit rate for bluetooth audio?
Arcam gives the advice to increase it for OS X as high as 58.

I am also getting this issue as of late....

I'm using an unrooted Sprint M8 HK phone.

My problem is audio drop out (0.5 sec) constantly. Doesn't make a difference over BlueTooth or the speakers.

It appears that it is related to the phone accessing something during playback which causes the dropout.

It does it when streaming over wif or data... it even does it with audio that I have downloaded to my SD card...

I have uninstalled everything back to when I thought the issues started with no luck.

Anyone with any ideas? I see where some have had this issue and even a hard reset (wipe) didn't solve it.

This doesn't occur on my Verizon M8 which has almost the identical app's installed.

I have an international version M8, bluetooth skips randomly when streaming on car bluetooth and to my sony srs X9 speaker. It seems to happen only with continuos feeds. Mi cousin told me the problem could be that bt device is searching at all times for other devices but since there is no option to stop search i can't be sure.

I am also having problems I have a Scala headset on my crash helmet it doesn't matter if WiFi is on or not when streaming music, It seems to be better with the play music app the car app is annoying because it comes part of htc and I don't know how to disable it without rooting the phone. Has anyone come up with a solution yet? It sounds like an old LP playing with the stylus jumping like a good en.
