Question Does audio controls work for bluetooth speakers on PC?

Oct 8, 2020
Hi, I have a Philips BT40BK which is connected to my laptop, up and working. But I have small issue.

Whenever it's connected to my phone, and I press the volume up or down button, it increases or decreases the volume from the phone itself (the phone gives a notification).

But in case of my laptop, it doesn't reduce the volume from my laptop but instead the speaker's volume decreases. Is this a normal behaviour?

This doesn't cause any problem, I can control the volume, just it reduces from the speaker itself.

Things I tried:
mpris-proxy doesn't help in my case.
Modprobing uinput also doesn't help.
