After last update I have no sound notifications from android messengers like Telegram and Kate. I was very happy, when after previous update sound notifications return, after year of silent, but now again need manually checking phone for new messages(



  1. install telegram
  2. receive message
  3. listen silent(


Sound “PIM!”

For me, WhatsApp’s nagging me with repeating messages of ‘WhatsApp web is currently active.’. I know that, since I started it by myself but still every 15-30 Minutes I get a notification.

That’s expected. On Android, this pops up as a notification and you can’t remove it until you log out AFAIK.
As for notification sounds, I’m getting them (from Sailfish’s side not the android app’s side)

You can turn “other notifications” off from android setting.


Yeah)) Because of it I have WatsApp only if it need me, and remove immediately after using.

But after previous update sound of notifications was worked, after year had been broken. BUT! Android telegram could use sound with notifications early, than Kate. May be it depend on some ways, how apps make notifications?
But still weird - if I have notification about message, and have record about it under weather forecast - it must use some sound.

And in each release no information about sound-notifications from apps.
5-6 months and again need check phone for new messages. It make me sad.

In waiting of new update.

I can confirm the behaviour as described. Only I don’t use telegram (neither whatsapp) but I miss (for e.g.) my notification sounds of incoming email messages (which I receive via android app rather than the less capable sailfish email client).
After the update to SFOS I don’t even see the LED light up on my XA2 upon an android app notification.

However, I do like the new way android apps present their notifications on the SF notification screen (as well as pop up info).

Can it be a big issue to make android chime its “Tethys” (or whatever other) sound when notifications come in?

In the last version I have only vibration from and nothing from Viber, Kate, VK, Watsapp.
Only Telegram have sounds.
