    Default Bluetooth question

    When playing audio through bluetooth in the car, aren't notifications suppose to come through the car speakers? My phone just vibrates, is this normal?

    Any suggestions?


    Thanks

    Depends on the car I guess. Notifications come through my car speakers on my 2013 Altima. My car also can read my texts to me and that also comes through the speakers without issue. Maybe it doesn't work when streaming audio? I haven't tried that.

    Check what volume you have set for your notifications. I have mine on but sometime if its low i don't hear them over what I am listening to.

    all notifications are set to max volume, i tried this on 2 of my vehicles and was the same result, it just vibrates. I then tried it with a iphone 5s with 7.1 and got the sound alerts with the vibrations. Never had an issue coming form the S4, so it looks like its a sense thing

    It depends on the car and the software used to communicate to the phone. Some aren't updated to full compatibility with new phones so you can get glitches.

    It was on a 2004 & 2011 lexus. The S4 was on 4.4.2 same as the htc one, not trying to start an arguement.

    No argument, just informing you. I just went through this with my new car. Once the head-unit software was updated, the phone worked fine. I'll probably go through it again with the M8.

    What car? What head unit?

    I have a pioneer AVH-P4400BH last years model, checked their site, have the current firmware for it. When you do pair your M8 to your car, can you let me know outcome with audio streaming over bluetooth

    Thanks

    Not sure what you mean here. Using the normal apps my notifications and sounds come through my car speakers when Bluetooth is on. Now I don't know if it's just my car or what but that's my experience so far. I do know that certain cars have to support it but not sure because I don't have several cars or phones to test lol.
