Message notification tones in CarPlay

Hi All,
I find the ability to hear and dictate responses to text messages / iMessages really useful when in CarPlay, but I have so far not been able to work out how to get a notification tone when a message arrives.
If my phone is connected by CarPlay and I am (as an example) using the BMW navigation, I am unaware that I have received a message.
To check for messages, I have to manually switch to the CarPlay 'home screen' so I can see the little red "badge" showing that I have a message. I would be a lot happier if I got an audible alert to tell me I have a message.
Does anyone know how to enable this feature?

Thanks

Hello everyone

I restart this topic. Do you have a sound alert for receiving SMS / iMessages in Carplay?

Thanks
