Priority Order of Outputs?

Post by Freight on Mon Dec 05, 2016 8:06 am

Hi,

I probably have a strange configuration and wonder if this is possible with soundabout.

In my car there is no A2DP for media audio, but Bluetooth for phone calls. Though I use AUX for media and phonecalls with bluetooth.

But sometimes I am using a headset instead for phone calls while Bluetooth stays connected. So while Bluetooth is connected I like to give preference to wired headset with mic for phone calls. Notifications should still go to Bluetooth or speaker.

And, if there is just aux for media is connected, I like to have phone calls over Bluetooth. Notifications again should go to Bluetooth or speaker, also.

Is there a way to configure this to work automatically with androids phone app?

I have Nexus 5x with Android 7.0

Thanks for ideas and answers

It's tough to automate it, but SoundAbout favors Bluetooth over wired headsets.  Samsung phones have changed their priority to favor wired headsets over Bluetooth and SoundAbout can be used to put that priority back because then AUX will be used for phone calls when you are in the car (instead of Bluetooth).

The Media order for (Let app decide):
1] Wifi (like Chromecast)
2] Widget ON for Wired Headset (with mic)
3] Widget ON for Wired Headphone
4] Bluetooth A2DP
5] Bluetooth (mono)
6] Bluetooth (dynamic) (mono)
7] Wired Headset (with mic)
8] Wired Headphone
9] USB Host
10] USB Accessory
11] Dock Digital
12] Digital Aux (HDMI)
13] Dock Analog
14] Speaker

The Phone call order for (Let app decide):
1] Bluetooth (mono)
2] Widget ON for Wired Headset (with mic)
3] Widget ON for Wired Headphone
4] Wired Headset (with mic)
5] Wired Headphone
6] Dock Digital
7] Digital Aux (HDMI)
8] Dock Analog
9] Earpiece (built-in)

Then I should buy a Samsung phone, right ;-)

However couldnt this be a nice new feature for soundabout: Customize "Let app decide" order. This would make things more easy for a lot of users, I guess.

Thanks

Yes, I started to try and create a control that allows you to drag the items up and down. I would need this so the ordering won't take up too much room on the screen.

Sounds great! I cannot wait to test ;-)

What about "Alert behavior" does it refer to "Media audio" priority or "Phone audio" priority. Or does it have its one priority?

Alert behavior generally deals with media because when in a phone call, notifications are usually muted.
