    I have some new ear buds (not samsung), how can I get app notifications to play through them?

    I have two different sets of Bose buds. Both units interrupt tunes for notifications and calls without doing anything beyond marrying them via BT to my phone.

    I use various headphones(Bose and Sony), earbuds(Huawei), and speakers with a Note20, and notification sounds automatically come through those BT devices.

    And FWIW if I don't want notifications interrupting my music or podcast listening, I turn on Do Not Disturb.

    Is that all types notifications like messages and emails?

    Yeh, everything that makes a notification sound(app notifications that are set to ALERT, rather than SILENT).

    It it working as desired, or not?
    If not, it is most likely a setting in whatever media app you are using at the time.

    For instance, BlackPlayer (a music player) has an audio setting called 'focus'.
    This is where you can adjust the response to notifications while listening to music through the app.

    I figured it out. With Samsung ear buds my phone could be on silent or vibrate and I could get notifications through my ear buds. With the new ones my phone can not be on silent or vibrate.
