  1. No text message notifications in Your Phone app


    I set up the Your Phone app with my Galaxy S9 and it mostly works, I can see photos, make calls, I've enabled notification access in the phone's permission settings, and I can send and receive texts and system-related notifications. The battery optimization exception setting is ON on the phone and the app is up to date, v 1.19122.131.0

    What I don't get is notified that I received a text. I sent myself a bunch and they show up in the app, but if the app's not in the foreground (and even if it is) I get no notification, no sound, no postcard, no email, no voicemail, and no carrier pigeon has made a sound to tell me there's a text message waiting to be ignored.

    I got some nice noise cancelling headphones which are awesome, but now I can't hear my phone notifications. Since they're hooked up to Windows it would be nice if Windows could handle the notifications because they work really well. Considering Microsoft is now competing in this space I would hope this app would work.

    Fix?

    Message notifications are enabled and focus assist is disabled.

    Fresh (format) install of Windows as of the the 1903 update.

  2. Text Message Notification Sound

    The "text notification" only plays if you are not actively looking at that conversation. The "alternate notification" (ding!) plays when a message is added to the conversation that is currently being viewed.

    Here is an example:

    • Your phone is in your pocket and the screen is off
    • Your phone makes the "text notification" sound.
    • You pick up your phone, activate the screen, pull down the action bar, and touch your new message
    • You are now inside the messaging interface, viewing the message.
    • IF you stay on this screen, all subsequent messages to this conversation will result only in the "alternate notification" (ding!) sound
    • If you leave this screen (another app, or the home screen) your "text notification" sound will play
    This behavior cannot be altered in the current version of the software. My suggestion is to either simply read your messages from the notification area and swipe them away, or else read your messages from the app and then return to the home screen.

  4. No text message notifications in Your Phone app

    (SOLVED/CLOSED)looking for help with Android phone CONSTANT wireless signal notification

    Yeah, thats not a solution she is interested in......I've suggested that course of action. Thanks though.

    Just to clarify, I feel that there MUST be a step, or series of steps to turn off JUST the wireless notification sound. Thats what Im driving @ here.
