This is a continuation from my original thread "Google Voice Web (voice.google.com): Alert notifications not working when receiving SMS messages" 

Original Post:
Mac OS X Mojave 10.14.6: I use the web version of Google Voice (voice.google.com) to send and receive SMS text messages. Whenever I used to get a new text message, the Voice window would flash and make a sound alert. However a few months ago the alert notifications stopped working. I still receive alerts on Voice on my Android app.

Things I've tried for troubleshooting:
  • In Chrome, I've made sure that notifications and sound are both allowed for the site.
  • I've completely cleared the site's preferences and tried from scratch. It the asks if you want to allow notifications for the site, which I allow.
  • Manually set notifications and sound from Default to straight Allow.
  • Tried Google Canary, same results.
  • Tried Safari, same results.

Has something changed where this is no longer a feature? Does anyone else do text messaging on the Web client and either still get notifications, or have you had the same thing happen and they are no longer functioning?

I still get no visual tab notification alerts/flashing or a sound notification when receiving a text.

I don't have a solution for you, to make sound or pop up something on your browser.  I'd suggest filing feedback if this is important to you.  Otherwise, keeping a smartphone nearby, signed into the Google Voice app will give you audible notifications (dings).
