Push notification with sound on silent mode

Hi guys,

Is it possible to play a sound on the user’s phone when he receives a push notification, even if the phone is on silent mode ?


No, and that is not an Ionic issue. Your app wouldn’t even make it to iOS App Store with that behavior.

My goal is to notify the user when some datas have reached some specific values on my database. Since these data changes are critic for the user, he souldn’t miss the notifications, even being woken up if needed. Is it possible ? Should I use the Background Mode plugin ?

It is very easy for a user to never receive that critical notification. S/he may enable do not disturb mode, s/he may disable notifications specific to your app…

If those notifications must reach the user no matter what, you should go with automated phone calls, something like Twilio Voice.
