Got MacBook sounds working with no message text attached. Not working again. I have no idea what’s going on. Not entirely sure what fixed it. I think it may have been something with replacing the sound files with newly converted .mp3 to.wav files, then rebooting the macOS app. But I imported the exact same files into the iOS app and rebooted and it’s still not working with iPhone.
I updated my MacBook and iPhone yesterday/today and now notification sounds aren’t working.
Before this, I’ve been using the following action successfully for several automations. It causes a sound on my phone, without an actual message or notification appearing. Very useful to remind me to do something or notify about a state changing without having to clear an unnecessary message. And it allows me to leave my phone in silent mode without worrying about missing HA notifications.
action: - service: notify.mobile_app_[iPhone] data: data: push: sound: critical: 1 name: ping.wav volume: 1 message: >
Now it’s not working. If I add text to the message section, my Apple Watch does the standard critical notification sound with an alert for me to clear. If I remove my watch, and remove the critical part, and add text, and turn my phone off silent, I get the required sound, but again, has the alert to clear.
Any ideas what has changed by switching to iOS 15 that would cause this to break?
