    I am facing weired problem and it's annoying too. This issue stated after android 9.0 pie update

    When I connect the phone with my bluetooth, notication sound doesn't play on the phone and it plays only on bluetooth device. I am sure Oneplus is bring fix for it but it's impossible to use bluetooth as I m constantly missing notifications as its always playing on bluetooth device.

    When you are on bluetooth, notication is treated as media and its only playing on bluetooth. Its weired and till now after going through all possible settings, I m not able to find right solution except switching off and on media of bluetooth. This is. Ot the way how it should work I guess...

    Is there any fix which anyone has discovered?

    I'm having a worse problem, my mic does not work.
    i can hear people on the call but the person across cannot hear me.

    I'm having this issue as well. Very frustrating to not get my notifications when my phone is connected to my car.

    Found the solution. Go to setting, then sound, then earPhone mode, then notification in earphone mode set it to never. Then notification will sound in speakers. Hope it helps. Take care everyone.

    I really wish it was device specific. I want notifications with earphones but not in the car. I also want my cake and eat it too.

    There's no notification sound but I find it still quietens the sound on Bluetooth while the notification sound should play.

    This does solve the issue for OnePlus 5 or newer (couldn't check on OnePlus 4).

    On OnePlus 3 (I checked on three phones and already did a factory reset) the menu point "Earphone mode" is not available. So still no solution for me there. Any solution out there? Thanks in advance!
