After installing the latest Android Oreo 8.1 update on Nokia 8 and Nokia 7 the Bluetooth music does not work in my car. It seems that the Nokia 8 is not connecting to Car Bluetooth. But the hands free phone functions work and also the contact sharing works you can't listen to music or audio-books anymore in Nokia 8 in car. The Bluetooth issue in Nokia 8 started after 8.1 Android update as it was working fine prior to this update.  Car media works well with different phones and tablets but not with Nokia 8 (Oreo 8.1).
