    I've lost the ability to test the sound of notification of my pixel 3. I have tried to reinstall the sound app but I can't find it. Help

    Reinstall the sound app? What do you mean?

    Thanks for responding. I lost the colorful sound menu for selecting notification sounds that was native to pixel 3.

    I can only assume that he's referring to the application shown in the attached screenshot.
    The sound picker.

    IIRC that app was installed in the background after a system update (December security patch). It's only available for Pixels and it's been in and out the Play Store a few times. Probably it's been deactivated again. Can you find it in your 'Library' tab in the Play Store?

    Can you open this link?

    I think that email is just an automatic notification that one your posts were quoted, I can't get any reply from that.

    Is the Sounds app still active for you? Can you install it back from there?

    No. Even though the app is present, it doesn't show up while editing notifications. Any suggestions?

    Perhaps I wasn't clear on my explanation of the problem. I can see all the settings of my notifications. I just can't easily change them. All I see are the sound files as a group. I can't test the sound unless I use another app to display audio files and test them from there. I'm probably the only one that has this problem. I know I'm a pain in the butt but I'm really getting frustrated. I'm tired of trying workarounds. But it's a pleasure to be able to communicate with you and learn from your experience. Thank you

    Let me see if I follow what your saying
    Once you go to phone ringtones or notifications sound your presented with 6 categories to pick sound , now your saying you cant go into each category to choose a sound ?

    That's what I'm saying. The colorfull Sounds Menu is nowhere to be found.

    I've done that. Short of that is a FACTORY RESET, which I want to avoid.

    You can try couple things here
    1. Go to settings>Apps find sound clear cache then force stop ..see if that helps
    2. Same go to settings>apps find sound and uninstall it and install see if that helps.

    If they were there before, have you recently added any new apps since then? Any apps that control sound or something like that?

    Maybe this issue is related to the problem that you reported a couple of weeks ago, missing the shutter sound.

    I don't think so because it worked perfectly. Actually, it happened when I was changing some notifications last week. It behaved strangley during the attempt and resulted in the present screen. Here's the screen shot.

    You know how to add those notifications sounds on your screenshot, to pixel file system? Copy them in notification file then you see it as a notification sound in the settings when you choose notification

    Thanks again. I copied the files in the screenshot to the NOTIFICATION SOUND folder but it still didn't give me the My Sound menu. What did I do wrong . Since this is the first time I have worked with this problem, can you take me through the steps to make this problem go away.

    When you open the notifications file is the sound files there?
