Android Oreo Channel notifications

Bria supports notification channels for devices running so you can decide how Bria sends notifications based on how important they are to you. On devices running Android Oreo, Bria notifications are divided into channels. Bria has a default for each channel that determines whether your device displays peek notifications, makes sounds, vibrates, shows a badge on the launcher icon, or uses LED notifications. If you would like the behavior to be different from the defaults, go to PreferencesIncoming Calls and tap on Incoming Call Notification Settings. The Android notification channels for Bria opens.

Some devices running Android Oreo only support text tones and not ringtones in Android notification channels. When you install Bria, the default ringtone is set to a custom distinct ringtone. If you are using a device that does not support ringtones and you choose a text tone, you can only go back to the Bria distinct ringtone by reinstalling Bria.

For Xiaomi MIUI 10 devices, you may need to Enable Sound in the native Android OS settings.
