Any progress or any alternate solutions for this issue?

Still no solution for this problem?!

The "main" Bluetooth skipping problem was fixed a few months ago in Ubuntu 18.04 here:
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pulseaudio/1:11.1-1ubuntu7.1

That fixed the main bug in PulseAudio but there may remain some driver-specific bugs in the kernel like this one...

Are you using 18.04 or later?

The last I was using Ubuntu it was version 17.04! I had to switch back to Windows because bluetooth is very important to me.

Daniel van Vugt (vanvugt) wrote :

OK. Please test Ubuntu version 18.04, or 18.10 (release tomorrow!).

In the meantime this bug will automatically close in 60 days if there are no more comments.

Hello!

I installed version 18.10 and tested Bluetooth and the problem persists! the audio started skipping and then it disconnected the device.

Daniel van Vugt (vanvugt) wrote :

Please also test after closing the Settings app. Does the problem persist with the Settings app gone?
