    Default Android Notifications

    I have a Google Pixel 2XL running Android 11.

    Since yesterday, every 3 hours it sends a aural notification. This
    notification happens at 12.21, 15.21, 18.21 etc - it is a sound that is
    different to the tones I have for ring, notifications etc. There are no
    visual notifications associated with the sound (no dots on apps or blinking
    lights) and no indication on the top task bar to indicate an association to
    an app.

    On receipt of the notification I open notifications history and there is
    nothing there.

    I have searched the internet and there are similar reports from back in 2013
    where switching off NFC fixed the issue, but does not work on my phone.

    Any ideas? It is annoying to be woken up every three hours at night - yes I
    guess I can turn the volume down but I need to be able to take calls late
    evenings.

    Thanks

    Try turning off automatic updates in google play store settings ...or... set updates to only occur when wifi is active, and turn wifi off before sleepybobo time =)

    Thanks for those comments - notifications for the google play store are off and google play store is disabled but the notifications still occur now every 3 hours 14 minutes.

    @Fromaron - thanks looked on that forum and actually am on it - as that link shows lots of suggestions but few work. I have done/checked most of them with no real result as the majority of others have found. There is no log of these notifications and no visual indication.

    The next thing to do is to note all the apps i have and everything that has passwords, copy pics and music etc across to my PC and set the phone back to factory default and start again - but then in some cases that has not fixed the issue.

    Thanks for the input - much appreciated.

    Settings, notifications, apps.

    You can individually disable notifications of change the notification sound for each app.

    Should be able to teas ck it down....

    Thanks - if only it was that easy. This notification does not leave a trace when it sounds - if you go to view recent notifications when it sounds there is nothing listed - even asking Google Assistant what the last notification was draws a blank.

    One thing I have noticed is that the phone has to have either data enabled or wifi connected for this to sound so it is an external app that is causing this rather than something just on the phone.

    I have uninstalled apps that are not important and either disabled or Forced stopped the rest and the sound still comes up - now back to a regular 3 hour interval.

    So a bit perplexed as to what is going on.
