how to turn off android notification sounds

Has this ever happened to you? You are watching your favorite show or movie and out of nowhere an ear piercing notification blasts through your speakers and scares the heck out of you? Well no more of that! In this article we will tell you why this happens and how to make it stop.

What is that horrible sound anyways?

These sounds are apps giving you a notification, just like on your cell phone or tablet. But the real issue is that since these notification sounds are being sent to your TV speakers or sound system, they are much more jarring and scary. Social media apps are the most notorious notification offenders. Anytime anything happens on your profile you are sent an annoying notification. But social media apps are by far not the only offenders. Almost every app that is available will annoyingly send you notifications for whatever reason. Most of them want to remind you to keep using their app so they make more advertising revenue or kindly remind you that they are offering a discount on their premium version.
