Paired with what, exactly? Your car stereo?  For mine I had to read the stereo manual to figure all of that out. Simply pairing it wasn't enough.

Hi Rahn,

Thank you for responding. Sorry I was not clear. Yes, my car stereo.  I saw that with the S7 next to the device listed in the bluetooth settings there is an and you click that to allow notifications to the device. I do not see that with the S8.

Gotcha. You might want to try Google Android Auto.  I forgot this was carried over from my previous phone and not baked in to the S8/+.  Samsung also has one in their store called Drive Mode.
