LDAC issue – Cannot initialize effect engine

Some users are reporting some issues with our app when using
the LDAC protocol on their Bluetooth devices. LDAC is the standard that is usually used by Sony devices.
At the moment the issue seems located on the Pixel devices.

The error shown by our app is
Cannot initialize effect engine for type: …….. Error: -3

We opened an issue to the Google guys, at the moment the workaround is:

  • Use another protocol different than LDAC
  • Use the Audio Compatibility mode on our apps

We’re following the issue on the Google issue tracker and we will keep you updated.
