This article explains how to turn “push notification” and “in-chat message” sounds on or off in the Signal app on Windows 11.
Signal is a cross-platform popular messaging app. It allows users to send and receive encrypted messages, make voice and video calls, and share files from their devices, including computers.
When you install and set up the Signal Desktop app, you can choose to have it open automatically when you log in to your computer. The app also allows you to turn on or off call relay through Signals’ servers to avoid revealing your IP address, turn disappearing messages on or off, change notification content settings, and more.
Another setting you can change in the Signal app on Windows is to turn notification sounds on or off.
You may want to turn notification sounds on or off in the Signal app for various reasons. For instance, if you find the app’s notification sounds distracting, you may want to turn them off. On the other hand, if you don’t want to miss important messages or calls, you may want to turn notification sounds on.
Whatever your reason, the Signal app allows you to customize your notification settings.
