I have an iPhone 6 and MBP on OSX Yosemite. The new feature in OSX allowing me to take a call through my MBP is fantastic, but it's less practical than it could be because of how long it takes to switch the audio input/output settings to my headset. The sequence goes like this:
- My normal audio settings have output through Cinema display, input through display (or built-in, whatever)
- I'm listening to pandora
- Call comes in. Sweet! I can use my headset!
- Hold down ⌥ and click the speaker icon in the menu bar
- Select output to go through my headset.
- Repeat #4
- Select input to come through my headset
- Stop pandora so it doesn't interfere with the phone call
- Answer call just in time to hear someone say "call me back" or just hang up
- Make phone call on my phone, defeating the entire purpose
Steps 4-9 take way too long. The Google Hangouts plugin does this right, as does Skype (IIRC). Those steps:
- Normal audio settings
- Listening to pandora
- Call comes in, I grab headset
- I answer call, pandora is squelched somewhat, the headset is piped through to the call automatically
The second set is what's desirable. Is there a way to make Facetime on OSX do this?
