I created a Blynk app a few weeks ago. It was working fine until the weekend.
Now when my screen is locked or I am viewing a different app Blynk notifications don’t come through properly. Instead of playing the tone I have selected it just plays a single ‘ding’.
My app is an alarm so it needs to actually play the tone I have selected.
I have tried changing notifications to high priority - no difference.
I have tried deleting the notifications widget and reinstalling - no difference.
I have uninstalled Blynk and reinstalled - no difference.
Is this a bug? Or are there more steps I can try to get notifications working again?
Had you checked latest beta? As from Android 8.0 and later we can not change the very first setup of notification channel (it’s sounds / vibration / etc) - so now for these versions of Android we have a button in notifications settings that will lead to app’s notification settings, where the sound can be changed for sure.
Wow, that’s strange as that screen should show notification channel settings with sound selection included. I’ve googled - it looks like a common issue on the latest Huawei devices that do not provide system’s notification sound option in the app’s settings.
I’ll check is there something possible to do, but on Android Oreo and later after the notification settings first setup their changes could be done only by the user, in app’s settings notification option, so Blynk app will redirect from notification widget to it’s channel settings in system settings.
Already its a must for me to use Blynk Local server, I am in area that can not pay for subscription and have more than 1 devices, Is there any other solution for me to have a correct android app ?
