Music Controls on Bluetooth Headphones Not Working on Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2
I am having a minor issue I was hoping to solve. Like many people, I download music onto my Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 to use while jogging without my phone. In my case, I am using a Tidal premium subscription and AfterShokz Trekz Air bluetooth headphones. The music streaming works well. However, the music controls (play/pause and next track) from the bluetooth headphones is not working (volume control from the bluetooth headphones works fine).
I think this is a Tizen issue as I have done the following:
1) Paired a different set of bluetooth headphones and they have the same problem.
2) Downloaded a different music application (Spotify). Interestingly, the next track function works on Spotify and the default music player. However, the play/pause (the more important function to me) does not work on any of the music players installed on the watch.
3) When I pair the same Aftershokz headphones to my Android, the play/pause function works fine on Tidal. I realize this is a completely different app/platform but thought it was worth mentioning since it proves these headphones are capable of play/pause over bluetooth.
