3 days ago I noticed the default notification sound has changed. I have a daily reminder at 8:00 PM to take my medicine and when the reminder went off the sound had changed to just 2 short beeps. It has continued to make this sound for any notification for the last 3 days. I have not changed any settings and am the only one with access to the settings. The settings in my Android app are still showing it set to the default sound. This has happened on both of my Echo Dots, both 2nd and 3rd generation. Was this changed by Amazon?
FYI = I just tested a reminder 722PM MST 5/21/19 it made a sound [NOT 2 short beeps]then announced time for pill
Try uninstalling/reinstalling the >Alexa < App.
Note: Uninstalling the app disables previously enabled operating system level feature permissions. Once you have finished reinstalling the app, please revisit each feature and re-enable any relevant permissions.
No offence, but from what I've seen on this forum uninstalling and reinstalling the app seems to be your go-to answer for everything. The app still showing it is set to the default sound should not have changed the sound. Other people on the Reddit Alexa forum are having this same issue yet no one knows what caused it. Doubtful it was the app that has affected all of us at the same time.
