Android - No sound on notifications?

See original GitHub issue


Using {playSound: true, soundName: 'default'} doesn’t work with localNotification. This affects both iOS and Android. Are there limitations on local notifications? I am able to turn on sound on Android if I configure the notification channel (from the OS settings) to use sound.

Environment info

Library version: 3.4.0

Hi @UxmanKaxmi Sounds are defined on channels, you can’t override or change the sound of a channel. Please refer to the Android documentation about channels. Regards
