Double notification sounds - RFD forums app for android

I recently got a new MOTO G6 phone running Android Oreo.

For some reason, whenever I get a notification frmo the RFD forums app as a result of someone posting to a thread I get 2 notifcations sounds - one sounds, then gets interrupted and another sounds.

It is not the case that there are two simultaneous notifications. There is only a single notification.

This doesn't happen with other apps - just this app.

I tried disabling the "Other" notifications for the app but it didnt change anything.

i realize that OREO has revamped android notifications. It is likely the case that the app has not been updated to properly fit with OREO's notification channels?

Let me know if you need more information.

Thanks

It could be the case that your device is registered twice for your account. Notifications are sent out to all devices you have registered, so if you have a phone and a tablet, they would both get the notifications.

You could try going to App Info and clearing all the data, which will log you out, you can then login again. If that doesn't fix the issue, let us know.

Thanks.

Thanks.

I cleared cache and data... Also installed an update from play store..... Logged into the app... Left it alone and waited for a notification...

Still happened..

Please let me know if you need more information..

It definitely happens with the red forums app... It doesn't happen with most of the other apps; however it may happen with other apps.. so far I only noticed it with the rfd forums app but i will be paying attention to see if it happens with anything else...

I originally posted on Reddit and posted here when I narrowed it down to the rfd forums app.

Based on my googling etc. It seems there is something in the app that needs to be updated;however I'm not really sure if that applies in this case.

Please see the links below for discussions on similar issues (other apps and maybe other phones but all android oreo 8.0):
