    When I am on a whatssapp call (I have not tried on another app) The notification sounds I get for other apps such as e-mail, go back to the default sound.

    I have each app with a different notification sound on purpose as I juggle different apps for my work.

    This is happening on a pixel 3a and whiel using a bluetooth device, on Android 11.

    On my previous phone this did not happen.

    Howe can I make it so each app has its on notification sound even when i am on a whatsapp call? thanks for your help everyone.

    Hi Mustang, thanks for the answer, I have registered now. No no custom tones, just the ones that come on with the pixel 3a. The thing is I have one tone for e-mails, a different one for messages a different one for my rider app (I do deliveries for 2 different companies). So when I am doing deliveries I am on a whatsapp call. So it is helpful to know which app is sending me a notification that I need to pick or deliver a new package. On my previous phone I did not have this problem.

    Try going into developer options and enable 'in-band ringing'.

    Hi, Ben thanks for the suggestion.

    I could not find in-band ringing, I did unlock the developer options. But after some testing, I do get the different notifications sounds via bluetooth. However If I am on a Whatsapp Call (I have no tried with a normal call) The notifications go back to default all having the same default one.

    Right I have done some more testing, this happens on all type calls not just whatsapp, and happens with and without bluetooth. Again, all notifications sound the same regardless of which app is coming from, while on a call.
