Facebook App Not Playing Notification Sounds

iOS & iPadOS

Hi, the facebook app doesn't play any sounds when new notifications come in, even when the play sound option is enabled. Does anyone know why?

Hello Burak,

Unfortunately, the Facebook app not playing notification sounds is an issue I've been experiencing for quite some time. Every once in a while, a sound will play for an incoming notification...but those occurrences are far and few between.

While you could try uninstalling and reinstalling the app, I'm not really sure what good it would do. I think the underlying cause is a bug somewhere that only Facebook can fix.

Hi both of you. The only time i get a notification sound is when someone mentions me on Facebook. With the amoutn of pokes I get I'm not to disapointed but i understand why you'd want them. Maybe it will be fixed eventually.
