    Hey all,

    I think my problem applies to many folks so I hope it's ok to post here...Official google chat help was not helpful. Hoping there is a third-party solution for this problem. When my phone (Pixel 3) is in DND, calls still ring in the ear buds. If I disable phone calls in the bluetooth settings, it doesn't ring, but it pauses music/podcast playback. The official google chat rep said DND only applied to the phone, not attached devices, that I should make this a "feature request" through product-feedback.



    I can't accept that. It's bonkers it behaves this way. Drifting off to sleep to an audiobook, when "BAM! RING! RING! INCOMING CALL FROM..." Or I'm in the zone during a workout "Push it to the limit, one more.......(silence)...........(silence continues)........(silence continues).......(silence continues)......(silence continues)......(silence continues)......(silence continues)......(silence continues)......(silence continues)......(silence continues)......(silence continues)......(silence continues)......(silence continues)......time."



    Any solutions other than buy an iPhone?

    As I understand it, the purpose of DND is for the phone itself not to be making any ringtones or other sounds, like when in you're in a meeting or something.


    That sounds right. The BT ringtones and BT voice announcements are produced by Bluetooth audio devices themselves, and not the phone. I know Bose and Sony BT devices can give voice announcements for incoming calls.



    I don't think an IPhone would any different, although I've not had an iPhone in 12 years. My solution if I don't wish to be disturbed by phone calls when listening to music via Bluetooth, is to put the phone into Airplane Mode. Also depending on your carrier, you might be able to set incoming calls to go to voice mail, again if you don't want to be disturbed and your music or workout audio interrupted.
