    Hi, when I'm home I'm connected Bluetooth to speakers for playing music. Notifications are also done on Bluetooth... This is a bit annoying as it dimms the music down while notification is pkayed.
    Is there a way to only have music through Bluetooth ?
    In such way that notifications can still be played from the phone itself.
    If I put it on mute or vibration then obviously no notification on Bluetooth but neither on the phone.
    Thank you all for your help

    No, BT is either on or off. It has no way of distinguishing the difference between sounds

    The workaround is to cast to a Google Assistant speaker instead.

    It would help to know which device you have , as newer ones have bluetooth 5 .

    I'll leave a link to register so you can communicate here, as a guest account u cant .

    Music and notifications are both on the Media channel, so you can't "split" them - there's nothing to split, it's one channel. (Maybe some developer who wants the same thing you do will develop an app to direct the media channel to speaker or Bluetooth based on file name that's playing.)
