    In order for my phone to be able to answer a phone call, I have to go to Settings --> Connectivity --> Bluetooth --> Play phone audio on watch and toggle that on. Does anyone know of a shortcut that bypasses all of those steps?

    I'd leave it on all the time but my Pixel treats my watch like any other bluetooth headset device and often, when I get a call and that setting is toggled on, my phone defaults to it instead of the phone earpiece.

    The other problem I run into with having this setting on all the time is that when I get in my Ford Explorer, the SYNC bluetooth doesn't connect to my phone because my phone is "hogging" the bluetooth connection. (I thought this was 2017 and phones/devices should be able to handle multiple bluetooth audio connections.)

    Having similar issues with my Escape. It's like they're fighting over the bluetooth connection of my phone.

    I have a mini Cooper. Which is BMW. I'll find out today when I drive. My s3 would block my car from taking calls.
