When talking about technology, people usually don’t understand
how much work goes into the details. And this has since been the case when it

Android O allows you to hear your own custom ringtone via your Bluetooth device

Case in point: what happens when you’ve paired your wireless
headset to your smartphone, and someone calls you? Right now, you can only hear
the (often terrible) default ringing your Bluetooth device provides, while
whatever custom ringtone you’ve actually set on your phone gets lost in the
However, a new feature in the upcoming Android O, as
uncovered by the folks at XDA Developers, will finally put an end to this
behavior and let you hear those glorious first three seconds of your favorite
Carly Rae Jepsen song through your wireless headphones.
If you know where to find it, of course: right now, the
option to enable this (named “Enable in-band ringing”) is tucked

headphone jack, it seems Google is finally taking Bluetooth users more

battery status without resorting to third-party apps.
