18: IGEL Weekly: Automatically Connect Bluetooth Headsets and Enable HSP Mode for Bidirectional Audio on IGEL OS

May 25, 2021

Hello everyone, I had a recent case where a customer wanted his Bluetooth headset to automatically be in HSP (Headset Profile) mode. By default, IGEL OS seems to connect Bluetooth headsets in A2DP mode (suitable for high-quality audio but no mic input).

However, it's possible to run a command to switch to headset mode.
