Have you changed the audio settings output to Bluetooth?

I was not aware that I need to change the audio settings output to Bluetooth.

Can you please state where I need to change this setting, please?
Thank you

In settings->system->audio->audio output device

This above issue is now resolved. This is to the point advice and I thank you.

Next Question: What settings update I need to do to make Coreelec Bluetooth auto-connect the Bluetooth Speaker?

I need to perform below steps every time I start coreelec:

System -> CoreELEC -> Bluetooth -> ‘Choose BT Speaker’ -> Trust and Connect (or Pair)

Thank you

@Vasco I wonder if setting the BT device as the default sink using
pactl set-default-sink <BT device>
in an autostart file might achieve the desired result?

It should work without doing that and it’s being looked at.

I have my audio set to bluetooth and it auto connects every time I switch on my bluetooth headphones. It has done this 9.2.1 and every nightly since through to 9.2.2 stable.

Such is NOT my experience.
