Goto Developer Options, activate the "Disable Absolute Volume" toggle (see screenshot). Disconnect and reconnect your Bluetooth connection. Problem solved.
NOTE: This was done on Android 7.0. You can try on your own OS version.
There's a Bluetooth connect & Play app that can intercept the incoming "play" command. While it was originally designed to let you start a specific music app playing when a specific Bluetooth device connects, you can instead select "STOP music from playing" to keep any app from starting when the car connects.
I was in need of doing this exact thing today. I was forced to figure it out on my own after I couldn't find an answer online. As it turns out, it's easier than I expected.
Open your bluetooth settings, find your device, and click the settings icon for that device. You should see some options for the device. Uncheck the "Phone audio" option.
On my Cyanogen 10.1 phone (AOSP 4.2.2), it is possible to enable a capture of bluetooth traffic. You can then load this capture into Wireshark and look at the negotiation phase to determine which codecs the paired audio output device supports. Not sure what OSes support this: when I first ran across this method it claimed support only from 4.4 onward, but ...
Solved: The android system is likely connected to the headset for phone calls, and some other device for A2DP (media). Some other device is still using the audio connection, even though the sound comes from android's speaker!
What this means is that if you have any other A2DP devices that you've paired your android with (laptop/stereo/etc) then you will ...
With Nexus 4 (5.0.1) or Nexus 7 (2012)(4.4.4) devices it is possible to use the developer mode to get the btsnoop_hci.log. "Enable Bluetooth HCI snoop log". It is not necessary to root the devices.
It seems that both devices don't offer aptx.
I test this with Moto Stream (no aptx) and Philips AEA2500 (with aptx).
Major part of this guide was extracted here: How to Disable Bluetooth Automatic Playback on any Android Phone
The point of this guide isn't to disable Bluetooth music entirely, otherwise the latter can easily be achieved by:
Disable Bluetooth Music : Settings >> Bluetooth >> Your device(Car) >> Settings then uncheck audio support.
..and this ...
I was searching for a fix to this exact problem and came across your post. I just found
I remembered your thread and thought i would come back to share this with you.
The guide says to:
Open Bluetooth Launch and scroll down to “Voice Search”.
Tap on it to expand it out, then select:
but i found ...
In many cases, you need not go through this process, as valdikss now keeps track for many of the contributed results on his website

You want to hear music on your bluetooth device
Your bluetooth device pairs perfectly with your android phone.
It works only with calls, media still plays on your device speakers.
BTMono is a great tool that suits your requirement. It will allow you to simply turn ON media streaming and you are good to go.
Remember that it is free and you need to ...
The Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) is a source/sink configuration. In an normal scenario, you have a source (for example, and Android phone) and a sink (Bluetooth headset/speakers). But in your case, the Android phone would have to act as a sink to the dumbphone source. This is not currently supported, even though the phone supports the A2DP ...
I can think of 2 ways you could do this.
Bluetooth audio adapter, like the Antec BXR100. These are generally used for headphones, but should be able to simply connect into your amp.
-Pros : Simple, cheap
-Cons : Bluetooth, limited range, A2DP appears to have issues on Android 4.2, possibly non-optimal audio quality
DLNA renderer (mini computer (raspberry ...
I'm not sure if this is true for other phones listed above, but for The Galaxy Note II, I had to make sure S-Voice was disabled (it says Voice Dialer on the first post).
Also, if you have downloaded bluetooth launcher you probably already tried:
"Google Search" and then selected "com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox.VoiceSearchActivity"
and was still ...
The reason for the Bluetooth icon being disabled is that you haven't paired the phone with a device that supports the Headset profile. Bluetooth uses profiles to categorize which services a device supports, and Macs don't support acting as a headset, only connecting to a headset (see list of supported profiles).
To use this functionality, you'd need ...
As far as I know, the sound protocol is A2DP and the phone is HFP, therefore, they are different. It should be possible to connect only one of them to the Bluetooth device (in this case, your car).
In the Bluetooth devices list, you should have a settings icon next to your car's name where you can disable audio. It should be possible to disable one without ...
The feature uses Bluetooth AVRCP, the Audio Video Remote Control Profile. It's used for controlling the app from the receiver (e.g. play/pause buttons on a BT headset).
AVRCP level 1.3 is possible since ICS and improved in Jelly Bean; it allows all of 1.0 (play, pause, next,...) plus metadata information on the track itself (artist, track name, etc.). It ...
This is pretty hard to do with software, since there are delays in the audio stream. The transmission from you phone's BT to the headset can take up to 200ms, and the same for the reverse. Therefore before sending the audio from the mic to the recipient, up to 400ms of audio would have to be sampled and cancelled, assuming that the BT connection is stable.
Quick answer: NO. Doing a quick Google search to confirm my assumption, it does not look like there is any (easy) way to use the phone as a Bluetooth receiver. One problem is that the device should disable the headphone jack when Bluetooth is connected.
I personally have old Android devices (phones and tablets) connected to pretty much every audio appliance ...
Based on our chat discussion, consolidating
By entering PIN correctly on the sound box, you are able to pair with S4 or any other device
This doesn't repeat with S5, even after clearing the cache and data of S5 (The first way is to to clear cache and data of Bluetooth app from Settings > Applications Menu > Application Manager.
3.There is no option of ...
I've found that it's an issue of Skype application.
E.g. Google Hangouts gives good sound quality with and without bluetooth headset both.
I've filed a bug report here: https://community.skype.com/t5/Android/Forced-low-quality-voice-with-bluetooth-headsets/td-p/4366926
I read that BTmono is an app that does that kind of thing, but I had no success using it in my car with a Galaxy S7 Edge.
Without any app, I noticed that sometimes after ending a call the car keeps hanging on the the BT stream allowing Google Map's navigation directions to be announced through the car speakers treating it like an in-call sound. But I'm ...
In the Spotify app, go to:
"Your Library" (lower right) -> Settings (cog in the upper right) -> scroll down and turn off "Autoplay". That should do it. Autoplay does exactly what you said. "Keep on listening to similar tracks when your music ends."
You can also or alternatively turn on "Offline mode" at the top of the settings screen. This will only allow ...
This "browse" feature is probably part of "Audio/Video Remote Control Profile" aka AVRCP. AVRCP has different versions with different feature sets. Browsing of playlists was introduced in version AVRCP 1.4 and improved in version 1.5, according to wikipedia.
This bluetooth profile must be supported (in the correct version) by the the car ...
