Is your Samsung Galaxy S8 Bluetooth connection making you problems? You’re not the only one. And even though it could just manifest when you’re trying to connect the device to your car (Audi, Volvo, GM, Mazda, BMW, Nissan, whatever), this is still a problem that you shouldn’t ignore. At times, you might notice that you cannot connect your smartphone to another device either, as long as you’re trying to use the Bluetooth.
In today’s article, we’d like to tackle this problem that many of our readers wrote us about. As you probably suspect, Samsung hasn’t spoken a word about it yet. Otherwise said, we don’t have an official solution from the manufacturer. And we don’t have a clue when is it going to come or if Samsung is currently working to fix this through a firmware update.
So here’s how we think you could get over it. Better said, we don’t think, we know for a fact since many users have already reported that the following tweaks allowed them to use the Bluetooth as they were supposed to.
Wipe cache partition under Recovery Mode and check once again if you can connect your smartphone to your car through the Bluetooth. These instructions are usually proved to work with both Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus devices.
Clearing the cache by using this guide is the first fix for some obvious reasons. Thanks to the cache, temporary data is stored. Your device uses that data when switching from one app to another. If you can’t connect to your car via the Bluetooth, it must be because of some cache memory problems. After you’ve cleared the cache using the steps from below, try to reconnect. This time will have to work.
- Begin by turning on the smartphone;
- Access the Home screen;
- Tap on the App icon;
- Tap on the Settings icon;
- Browse and find the Application Manager, then tap on it;
- Display All Tabs with one swipe (right to left or the other way around);
- Tap on Bluetooth;
- Tap to stop it forcefully;
- Clear the cache;
- Clear Bluetooth data;
- Select Ok and restart the smartphone.
Now you know how to fix the Bluetooth problem on Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus!
