2012 focus sync streaming audio issue

Hey,
Just a note before my main post that I did search both here and google before posting and tried the suggestions for re syncing my phone, master reset, pulling the fuse, etc. My phone and my wife's phone are both on the comparability list for streaming music with the sync system we have which is my ford sync but non mft and we both have the same issue.
My issue is streaming Bluetooth music. I use Google play and it sees sync and says its streaming to it but sync doesn't play the audio or even seem to see its being streamed. When I press aux it says sync line in and I can't change it. I checked online and via Ford's website and it says I'm up to date but the last update was in 2011 (v3.1.1c). Calls work fine. It's just streaming audio. Am I missing a step or is this a common issue?
Thanks for any advice.

Step 1: Turn on stereo.
Step 2: Pull hands-free lever on right side of steering wheel, behind audio controls.
Step 3: Wait for helpful female assistant to finish talking.
Step 4: Say, "Bluetooth Audio".
Step 5: Enjoy!

Thanks. It's funny because I work with technology and generally am good with this stuff but the way sync works is something that stumps me a lot. Once again thanks.

In case you want a name for the helpful assistant, it's Samantha. ;)

Julie. If I don't know a woman's name, she's "Julie."

I have noticed when I plug in my phone to charge while driving it cuts out the Bluetooth audio. I have to put it back in FM (no audio) press a programmed station to get it playing then switch back to BT to have it play the audio again. Have to do this each time the car starts.

It did work. Thanks for all the help. This was defs just an error caused by the device between the seat and the steering wheel .
