I am having this issue where suddenly my phone stopped giving me notification sounds or system sounds. This spans across all apps. No text sounds no keyboard clicks or even sounds for unlocking. It will vibrate though. Talked to Samsung support and they connected and tried wiping app settings and more. Tried booting to the bootloader wiped cache factory reset mounted system and repaired apps. After all that notification sounds still didn't work. I set up my phone fresh and checked and they did not. What's strange is if you go into volume and adjust the ring tone it will start playing the ring tone. If you touch the notification volume slider while the ringtone is playing you will hear one chime for the notification but if you move it again when the ring tone is not playing it does not make a noise. I can only guess this is some sort of bug in the last update.
Does anyone have a solution or can Samsung let us know when this will be fixed. I'm not the only one
All smart a comments aside. Yes my volume is all the way up alerts are set it's not on silent or do not disturb. The sounds also randomly come back for a second or two on a rare occasion and then stop again. My keyboard clicks were working for one message then after stopped again
Small update. In the process of testing I found that if i Connect my Galaxy Buds plus I can hear the notification beeps boops and clicks through the buds. If I disconnect or tell smart things to use the phones speaker it will no longer play the sounds
Yes its on One UI 3.0 least i believe so One UI Home shows version12.1.01.15. Everything is fully updated. All apps have notifications enabled but it isnt even isolated to just the apps. If I go in the volume menu or into notifications where it would normally preview the notification when you click on it. Even that does not work.
One other thing it seems is if any other audio is currently playing I will hear the notifications. For example if I launch pandora and its playing music I will hear any and all text messages beeps boops clicks. Soon as I stop playing music I am not longer able to hear any system sounds or notification sounds.
Def feels like a bug from a system update.
