Nexus 6P, Project Fi, Beta Preview 3.

100% reproducible sequence (as weird as it may seem to you):
Get in vehicle (2015 Toyota Tacoma). BT is paired for music, but not for phone (that's another long story). Start Pandora. Make a phone call. Music stops playing on car speakers, streams through phone earpiece. Pandora won't die. Hang up from phone call, music streams back to car BT. In about 3 minutes, Pandora just stops, BT shows "disconnected."

Every. Single. Time.

I've cleaned system cache, cleared Pandora cache and data. I guess I'll uninstall Pandora next. Bluetooth has sucked on this phone from day 1, and it's just getting worse, it seems. I'll try a complete system reset eventually, but was hoping to avoid that.

More Nexus 6P (Project Fi) weirdness with Preview 3. Bluetooth continues to suck, so I'm starting to wonder if it's not my device. Nonetheless, today's adventure included taking a call while streaming music to my vehicle (2015 Toyota Tacoma), and the music continued playing through the phone while on the call. The music was pretty muted, but very audible to me - the person on the other end of the call heard no music. When the call ended, the music resumed streaming through the car system.

As a side note, I've had poor performance with Pandora in general with this Preview, too. It hangs, locks, etc., so I'm trying to keep that in mind while reporting issues.

I've cleared system cache, so I'll try monitoring again, but Bluetooth continues to spontaneously stop/disconnect, sometimes so badly that it requires a reboot.

Bluetooth continues to be an annoyance. I've had to restart BT several times since installing Preview 3, because I lose connectivity with my vehicle (2015 Toyota Tacoma) and my Android Wear watch (LG Watch R). It's as if BT just stops.

I was unable to use my phone (via the Alexa app) to set up my Amazon Echo Dot that I got last night, too. Had to use my laptop. I had set up my original Amazon Echo just fine on Marshmallow, so not sure what has changed.

I'm an interesting demographic, it appears.
