Can anyone with a N7 and 4.2 confirm my issue?

I'm using the N7 everday to stream music from TuneIn, Google Music and Spotify to stream to my Bluetooth speakers. I never had issues with Android 4.1, but since 4.2 it's stuttering every few seconds. Especially when the content gets streamed over wifi and is not stored on the N7. To go sure that it's not just my wifi I tried it with my GNex and 4.1 and there I don't have this issue.

Yes, I believe all Nexus 7's will be affected, too. Check out this Google Code bugreport:

http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=39633


I am highly disappointed in Google for this. This is a HUGE use-case for me, and it has essentially made my $150 headphones worthless, as well as essentially ruined my use of the Nexus 7 in public, as I cannot listen to music/videos at a public shop/location with the BT headset/headphones that I always have with me. Wired headphones? Ick.

Yes, I've created that issue in the bug tracker. Please star it if you've the same issue. I'm now thinking of going back to 4.1 since I used this feature daily.

I did star it, haha. Small world, I suppose. Did you see this too: http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=39632

Very similar to what happens on my N7 on the odd few seconds I have uninterrupted BT audio output. WTF does Google keep doing with their BT stack? This is ridiculous. It is affected BOTH of their flagship devices. I will all but guarantee that the N4 is affected too.

Well since the 4.2 update my nexus has become quite useless to me. I used to use the bluetooth tethering feature on my phone (which I pay for).
Since the update this feature no longer works

I can confirm the bluetooth tethering issue as well. Sound is stuttering and tethering over bluetooth is impossible. So now we've two big bluetooth issues :/

I have the same issue. What's weird is that it's fine when playing through my creative bluetooth speakers in my kitchen but affects my philips fidelo bluetooth speakers in my bedroom!

Have you checked "connect to device for internet access"?
I'm having no issues tethering to my HTC desire since upgrading to 4.2, but I did notice that i have to check this box every time that I connect via Bluetooth now.

I just tested BT tethering to my Galaxy Note, all is well there too. The audio problems are not acceptable, though. I am not happy at all.
