Trigger a local sound in mobile app

Trigger a local sound in mobile app


1) I am using Pushwoosh to send a notification to a user's mobile device.  When the app is receiving the incoming notification, how can it trigger a local sound on the user's device to alert them to the incoming message.  I want to be able to do this without the user having to explicitly load any sound file or anything other than just installing our app.  

2) I want the above to happen whether my app is currently in focus or not.

3) Additionally, can I embed in my app our own sound, instead of using a native device sound?

Thank you!

Hi Joel.

If you don't want to mess with HTML elements, you can simply use javascript to play the sound:

var audio = new Audio('audio_file.mp3');;

This uses the HTMLAudioElement interface, which plays audio the same way as the <audio> element.

In Outsystems, it should be something like this:
