The sound of notification doesn't play.

Like in title. The problem started at newest stable Chrome 61 32-bit on Windows 10 64-bit with enabled experimental look of Chrome's notifications (Material Design experimental style), but it stayed even after disabling that flag in chrome://flags and I don't know what to do.

I also tried to “force clear” (delete settings file of the extension) the data, but this also doesn't work.

    Do they work in the options tests?

    Looks like I found a fix for this issue. It seems that MD experimental Chrome's notifications style didn't cause a problem, but “Autoplay policy” experimental flag set to “Document user activation is required”. Setting this experimental flag to “Default” or “User gesture is required for cross-origin iframes” or “No user gesture is required” fixes the issue.

    I only wonder if issue with “Document user activation is required” option in “Autoplay policy” experimental flag was reported to Chromium devs. I hope it was.
  • ok thanks for the details. Please note that I will not support and Chrome flags, only the defaults. So always try defaulting them all before posting an issue.
