Ever since the update on October 19th my music player is constantly pausing randomly even with no buttons being pressed. I have tested a different Bluetooth headset and the issue continues

And if you don't use BT headset, and simply play to the phone's speakers, as a test ... any difference ?

Yes it is still happening even playing over phone speakers. Also with two different Bluetooth headsets, the galaxy buds 2 and my beats pro, both Bluetooth

@Powerserg While listening to music or video,
connect another device (anything I've found) and then
disconnect said device. I've done it with my watch, my
bed, my Tesla key, etc. Doesn't matter (and not related
to speakers as those devices are not speakers, just
plain Bluetooth devices).
For me, that triggers the problem 100% of the time...
Connect and disconnect something else while music
playing or video playing.
I was able to figure this out because my Tesla is
right on the edge of range for the Bluetooth key
functionality so it was happening every few seconds
and I noticed the Tesla key app was saying 'connected'
and 'disconnected' like clockwork with the problem.
Forcing the tesla key off improved things, but it still
happens randomly every 2-3 minutes even with not
other devices connecting/disconnecting."

This is the problem exactly

It's happening with both Spotify and pocket casts. I disabled the battery optimization on both and it's continuing to happen.

Same here. Doesn't matter what bluetooth device nor the media player app. Started when that update was installed and worked fine prior to that.

There's a ton of threads reporting this. It's super easy to reproduce.

What's the best way to reproduce it? It seems to just happen randomly for me
