I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 that updated to Oreo a few days ago. I noticed that immediately after the update the headphones that came with the phone no longer work properly. They are the white headphones with a mic and three buttons.
Here are a list of issues that I've noticed since the Oreo update:
1. The mic will not work when answering a call
2. When listening to music/podcast the volume buttons do not work
3. When listening to music/podcast the pause button does not work
I've looked online at several forums and this seems to be a common occurrence but there's no definitive answer yet.
So far I've cleared the cache partitions, rebooted, partially inserted the headphone jack, etc. and nothing is working.
Anyone else have a cure? I'd rather not do a factory reset.
