Bluetooth notificatIon setting - phone speaker only

Post by Smithilberry on Tue Nov 03, 2015 3:37 pm

Thanks for the awesome app. I have a request/suggestion for Bluetooth. The option doesn't seem possible to play notifications through phone speaker only like how you can do with ringtone. That would be awesome. Thanks.

If the phone is currently connected / using Bluetooth A2DP then the notifications will come through Bluetooth and possibly the speaker.

The speaker can be blocked to allow notifications only through the Bluetooth output.

In order to play the notification through the speaker, and not Bluetooth, the Bluetooth would have to be temporarily disconnected. Android, or the source of the notification, would have to send an Intent to tell SoundAbout that a notification was about to play. When SoundAbout gets that intent, it can disconnect Bluetooth to allow the notification to play over the speaker, and then reconnect Bluetooth.
Since there are no Intents sent before notifications, this is not possible.

There would be other issues with doing this (if it was possible). What ever you were listening to might play through the speaker with the notification, or it may just pause (that is up to the app playing the media). When the notification is finished and the Bluetooth is reconnected, that media may or may not resume (again, up to the app playing the media).
