In-band ringtone on bluetooth headphones

In-band ringtone on bluetooth headphones

Hi everyone


coming from a Xperia Z5 Premium with Android 8 I now own a Xperia XZ1 as I was quiet happy with the actual size and position of the fingerprint sensor. Besides some smaller issues (navigation bar :-/) about Android 9 I have a major issue compared to functionality with Android 8.


When having bluetooth headphones connected and listening to music, incoming call and message ringtones are output via the phone. In-band ringtone is supposed to be enabled by default for Android 9 - at least this is what online info tells me. Buuuuuut well, not for me.


Build: 47.2.A.8.24

Headphones: TaoTronics TT-BH22


Anyone got a hint for me please?

Re: In-band ringtone on bluetooth headphones

Note to myself...


Current behavior when bluetooth headphones connexted:


1. --> notification sounds enabled

 --> incoming call --> ringtone on headphone AND phone device (what would the sense of this be?)


2. --> notification sounds disabled

--> incoming call --> ringtone on headphone ONLY


So 2. should be the one to go for if in public :-D


Still have to find out about behavior or message ring tone. Not sure here. Will hopefully be able to test tomorrow.
