Android TTS notification doesn't work

I am trying to setup a notification using TTS and mobile app but either I am doing something wrong or it doesn’t work on my phone for some reason.

Here is the example automation I use:

alias: test22
  - platform: time
    at: '16:00:00'
  - service: notify.mobile_app_przemek_phone
      message: TTS
      title: test message
        ttl: 0
        priority: high
        channel: alarm_stream_max
  1. In the Android companion app, under notification history I am able to see the notification is sent to the phone, but the phone doesn’t read the notification, I can’t hear it.
  2. The Google Speech services is up to date.
  3. Phone Samsung Galaxy S21 with latest Android 12 and One UI 4.0

What else I can check or try?

Check text to speech settings and make sure you can preview it

Where I have to check it? In the app, HA or phone itself?

phone itself

You were right. I didn’t had a default TTS service enabled so it wasn’t able even to preview TTS message.
Thanks for that tip.
