How to Fix Text Message Sound Notification Not Working on S8+ and How to Set


s anyone experiencing no sound for incoming text messages on the S8+? I had this problem on my s8. Go to settings, apps, and find messaging. Look for “allow notifications” there. None of the other notification settings work if that one isn’t activated. Hope this helps.

I just did what you suggested about changing blocked to allow notifications and my sounds were working perfect then all of a sudden I don’t have any sounds working at all. Is there anyone that knows which app it would be to update or change to allow notifications for the voice. What’s the voice app on our 8+ called anyone know?
