With the update to v5.6.1, my specific sound notification isn't being honoured.  The system default sound is being utilised.

Checking settings on my Galaxy S8 & Galaxy Tab S devices, all are unchanged; the requirement for my specific sound entry is in place.

closed with the note: Fixed by the genius, oRRs, working on all devices now.  Thanks.

What Android version are those devices on?
by (490 points)
Samsung Galaxy S8:  9

Notification sound settings are under the "More options" that directs me to the system notification settings.  Whereby, Important & Statuses are both set to my specific sound, 'Temple Bell'.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S:  6.0.1
Being an older unit, is set within the APP itself as Notification sound, also being 'Temple Bell'.

Sound, 'Temple Bell', in question is:  S_Temple_bell.ogg -- an original Samsung file.

I have converted/renamed this to a WAV, as a tester:  Temple Bell - Deliveries.wav

Copied to "Notifications" folder on the internal memory/card of both devices and pointed the Deliveries APP to it.

Android 9 device = Good
Android 6 device = no good, still a default sound (will try more options, later)

. .. ... .. .

Did some more testing, including converted that WAV back to OGG:

Android 9 device = Good
Android 6 device = no good, still a default sound

Even tried other sounds in the folder, simple names, etc, without success for Android 6.
