Using WiFi connect on Android 12


I'm using a Google Pixel 5 and recently updated to Android 12.  Now, my phone will no longer connect (and stay connected) to the camera WiFi  It seems that since the phone detects 'no internet' for the camera WiFi signal, it now automatically looks for a different WiFi signal to connect to.  This wan't a problem prior to Android 12.  This seems to be a phone/ connection issue, but i'm wondering if anyone knows how to correct this?  I haven't seen an obvious way to correct this through the phone settings yet.  I'm using a EOS Rebel T6i with the latest firmware. 




I can confirm this is working on Pixel4 and Pixel6 Android 12.


Tested both Wifi and BT individually.  No issues with either device remaining connected.  The camera conected to my P4 as it did with 11.  I then cleared the previous profile settings on the camera.  The new phone connected immediately.  I tested settings, image transfer and live view (shooting).


Canon App version (build 1246)

Android 12 v12(SD1A.201817.036)


Glad you got it working.

@Waddizzle, what do you mean "Bluetooth. Try it."?  My phone and camera are paired for bluetooth; the problem is that the phone won't stay connected to the camera's wifi. It connects to the camera, disconnects in a couple of seconds and reconnects to a wifi network with internet access.


EDIT: Some cameras can transfer by BT. Is that what you mean?  Unfortunately, the G5Xm2 does not - only wifi.
