BOSE hearphones won't connect anymore to pixel 4XL since I reseted andoird



Firmware Version


App Version 


What devices were you using that were affected and what version are they on (e.g. Samsung Galaxy S9 on Android 11, iPhone X on iOS14, etc.) PIXEL 4 XL

Detailed description of the issue and steps to reproduce



I had to reset my Andoird pixel 4XL completely, and since I did I can not connect any mroe my BOSE hearphones. Hearphones connect to other devices and I can connect other devices to my bloothooth on android. 


I put in pairing mode and it just won't pair. If I don't use Bose app and go into settings/connected devices/bluetooth, I can see my BOSE heaarphone listed when selecting "new device", but when I select it to pair, it quickly says "pairing" and then just comes back in 1sec and appears as available to pair. 


Any idea what else I can try? 

What environment do you experience the issue in? (e.g. noisy office, quiet kitchen, etc.)


When did you start to experience the issue? Did it work correctly previously?

After I reinstall completely android

Have you had any success in connecting to an alternate device?


Let's also clear the Bluetooth list of your hearphones;

  • Power off your product
