Vibrate every time there is text! Annoying AF.

So… after I updated my phone to the latest version of Android coming from Sony. You people at Sony thought that vibration should be a default function, and it's a must have whenever we received a text message, which you people also not giving any option for us users to disable that? WTH, Sony? Why would you do that? You know how annoying that is?

Hi @ChaseYu, you're close! Tap Messages as shown in your screenshot here:

Once you press Messages, you'll see an option for "Vibrate", with a toggle for off and on. I hope that helps! Slightly smiling Face

Re: Vibrate every time there is text! Annoying AF.

From the *Settings* , under the  *App & notifications*, rather it is *App info* or *configure notifications*, there's no option(s) to disable the vibration for text message receiving, as well as the text message App itself. I've already checked almost every Settings that I can reach in my phone, and I don't see anything option(s) to disable the vibration whenever a text message came in!

Thanks for the App suggestion, but I think I'll pass this time as I already I got tons of Google apps in my phone. And I kind of hated it( that I more and more sunken into the Google hole, everything is Google, and I even got a home mini!). 

 

Anyway, it is Sony's fault that their text message App doesn't have a option to disable the vibration! (or why even put that into the update on Android 8.0 ?)

I got the heads up, and it is there

 

Settings > Apps & notifications > Messaging > App Notifications > Messages > Vibrate > off

Screenshot_20171211-161948.pngAnd this is the message app notifications configuration.

 

That's weird! You might have to show me some screenshots of this. Cause under the Android version 8.0.0 on my xperia XZ, I cannot find that option. From Settings> App & notifications > ( there isn't messaging ) Screenshot_20171211-161535.pngThis is what I got, but nothing like you mentioned.

 And as I already mentioned, from app info to configuration notifications to default App, there isn't a way to turn it off. And if I go to app info and tap on the message app, there's also no such option too

Do you mean *make sound and pop on screen* ? Well, I don't mind the sound or pop on screen, it is the vibration that I don't want. It is like a double feature notifications for the text message ever since the Android 8.0 update. It make sound and vibrate the phone for every text that I receive which is pretty annoying. And as you can see it from my first screenshots ( which it should be my second, but mistakenly show up in first), that I even turn off the miscellaneous

Select the Messages: Make sound and pop on screen to get into the next menu.

Below Importance and Sound is Vibrate with a On/Off switch.

The vibrate option only appears when the Importance is set to Urgent or High.
