    Welcome to Android Central! Do you get audible notification tones from other notifications? If you go to the Messaging app's notification options, what happens if you choose a different tone?

    Do you have the text app open. If t's on screen, you probably won't get a notification when a new text comes in. (Hangouts works the same way if you use it as your text app.)

    I came back to the forums to report a similar problem but I might have figured it out. My text and Signal notifications were no longer consistently causing audible alerts. Different apps. At first, I couldn't figure it out. I think I may have found the issue.

    When I adjust volume from the home screen, it's adjusting MEDIA volume, even though no media is playing. I could swear I opened up all volumes several times and jacked the notification volume all the way up. I also seem to recall a setting where you pick the default for the volume button but I'm not sure and I don't see the setting in the volumes screen for that.

    This was absolutely not an issue until a couple days ago. I wonder if the Nov update did something.

    Ok, scratch this particular part of my comment. I didn't see anything. It's supposed to be annoying and always adjust media volume per this thread:
