Lightbulb Enabling Bluetooth on 8820

Please Login to Remove!

I recently upgraded from 8700 to 8820. On my 8700, there was an option to enable/disable bluetooth with a single "click".

On the 8820, the only option I see for bluetooth is "Set up Bluetooth". When choosing this option, it immediately says "please ensure your bluetooth device is in pairing mode" and tries to search for a device. it goes through the setup process every time I want to enable bluetooth.

Is there not a "simple" option to enable bluetooth that I am missing? Do users normally just keep it on all the time? My impression is that it runs down the battery faster if it is always on.

No, that's just how it works now. A little irritating.
