Bridge: Show embedded JPG in-camera previews instead of rendering raw files

As per title, I would like to keep seeing my in-camera generated previews instead of the rendered raw files while browsing my photos, (because I prefer my in-camera black and white conversion for quick photo editing). I can't find this in Bridge 2019. Any help?
Thank you.

I don't know of any way to have the raw file not show the color version in Bridge. I shoot raw + B&W JPEG, and get the camera's JPEG files alongside the raw files, but that only helps with viewing. On1 shows B&W if I don't choose the Accurate setting but Fast, so I know your request is possible. As soon as you open it, though, it will open in CR with a color profile applied by default (unless you change it to open with a B&W Profile, but I doubt you can get the exact in-camera profile) so I'm not sure how that helps more than shooting raw+JPEG B&W and viewing them side-by-side in Bridge.

I have the same problem. I shoot B&W in RAW only. I tried using RAW+JPG but that gave me two files to control for each image and it just messes up my process. So I too would like to have the B&W settings from the image show instead of the standard conversion. There is a button for "Browse quickly by preferring embedded images" but it doesn ́t give me B&W images.
