My phone is connected with a bluetooth watch. Which has in built speakers. I can make and receive calls from my watch. Now whenever I receive a call my call audio output is sent to my watch speakers. After picking up the phone I can change it to receive output to my phone's earpiece but this is annoying to do everytime I receive a call. Is there a way to force my phone not to transfer incoming call audio to bluetooth?

P.S. I can disable Phone Audio from my bluetooth profile but then I am not able to make calls or see who is calling me from my watch.

  • If you cannot see who is calling without the audio profile being enabled then it's an issue with your watch. All android watches I have used can display the caller without using the audio profile. In fact I am surprised that your watch cannot do this.

  • I can see who's calling. my goal is not to forward audio to my watch by default. is there a way I can stop forwarding my call audio to my watch?

  • Any solution to that on late 2020? I'd like to have a simple thing. My smartphone should ring with my watch. If I answer the call using the watch, I want the audio to go to the watch. If I answer the call using the smartphone, I want to use the smartphone. Whichever device I use to answer the call does seem an evident answer to which device I have at hand ready to answer the call!

I was in need of doing this exact thing today. I was forced to figure it out on my own after I couldn't find an answer online. As it turns out, it's easier than I expected.

Open your bluetooth settings, find your device, and click the settings icon for that device. You should see some options for the device. Uncheck the "Phone audio" option.

    the problem with doing this is your smartwatch won't get any incoming call notifications or any display when you get a call. because you turned off the whole phone audio channel. in my case I still want to see who is calling me.

I was looking for such a solution for a long time. I Found an app recently that does automatic routing of the phone calls. It remembers previous call audio position and routes to that speaker (similar to iPhone behaviour). It is called Bluetooth Audio Manager https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.phtl.headsetaudio&hl=en


As a follow up to previous post, the Bluetooth audio manager now supports smart functions on regular headset. By pressing button on headset, user can listen to current time, date or notification. The notification is read to the user in his headset. This is a great feature that enhances the headset experience in Android. You can get more details on these features at http://bamapp.weebly.com/.


I think this will answer your requirement.
