As this is a feature and not a bug, it is unlikely to be backported to
Ubuntu 16.04.

But you can do it yourself by adding to /etc/pulse/

  Automatically switch audio devices on connection

Status in pulseaudio package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  This way once a user pairs & connects a bluetooth speaker device pulseaudio 
will auto switch to it. 
  As it stands now users have to open sound settings & switch manually. It's 
bad enough that auto discover & connect don't work, (can be scripted thru 
bluetoothctl), no sense adding to frustration

  In the ### Automatically load driver modules for Bluetooth hardware
