It has happened to me twice now. An Android app displays a notification, and despite the sound being off there is a sound. The alarm sound no less. All alarms were off at the time, and there are none at the times in question.

How do I know it was Android notifications, well I cant tell for sure, but it stopped when i pressed the notification. It is especially annoying since the sound is so long and couldnt be muted by any button presses. :(

Anyone else seeing this?

Interesting. I don't even have notification sounds at all on Android, at least WhatsApp haven't worked

On my XA2 I do get notification sound in Telegram X now, which is nice! No WA messages yet :)

Happened again right now, so 100% comfirmed behaviour. Signal update notification triggers alarm sound.

There's a backdoor to the Android Settings if you wish to tweak it: go to Settings - Apps - [Android app] - Open Android Settings; it will open another app window with the app-specific Android settings; and if you press the Android back button in this window, it will go "back" to the Android main settings.

I don't think there's app-specific sound controls, but you can tweak notifications by app and the general Android sounds.

I turned off notifications for updates now, but still this needs fixing globally. At the very least the part of mapping whatever notification class this is to alarms.
