Pixel 5 Notifications via Bluetooth & Speaker

I have a Pixel 5 and I’m using a neckband bluetooth headset with it. If the bluetooth is paired and turned on, but not in my ear I miss text message notifications as they are not also played on the phone speaker simultaneously. Interestingly phone call rings seem ring BOTH the bluetooth AND the phone speaker. Is there a way around this issue? I understand it’s been going on for some time across various iterations of Android but I seemed to have worked around it on my old Samsung S7 by disabling notifications for Google Assistant. This remedy does not seem to work for the Pixel 5. Any suggestions? Anyone know of any "sound channel" remapping programs that might work?
