Also note that, as far as i understand, it only makes a sound if you in the same software.. i.e. a different tab of firefox or chrome. It does not (and i don't think it can) issue an alert if you are in another application.

Please fill this out:
Operating System: xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Browser: xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Scripts/third party programs used: xxxxxxxxxx

Also take note of this to further diagnose your issue:
viewtopic.php?f=506&t=208473


I filled it out here: https://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=506&t=226852
Operating System: Win 8.1
Browser: Chrome Version 64.0.3282.186 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Scripts/third party programs used: none

In Chrome when in another tab the alert would pop up on the screen. When in another application the Chrome icon in the Windows Task/Start/System bar along the bottom of the screen would flash and when you brought Chrome to the top the alert would pop up.

I was thinking it is most likely to be a change to how Chrome displays alerts.

I am on Windows 10 and have Chrome version 65 but yeah I see that Chrome does have a different reaction when it comes to alert tones compared to Firefox. I am going to make a follow up.

If its a deliberate effort by Chrome to change the behaviour of the browser when a page sends an alert I think you might be limited in what can be achieved.

Unfortunate, and it appears a lot of Google diary/ calendar users appreciated the old alerts too

I think you are right. It looks like this is part of Chrome that we cannot change.

In a speed guide game now so payed specific attention to the tone as I've noticed issues with it as well. I had the request tab open and it never altered me the game started. Typically I have several tabs open at a time and flip out of the game to do something else on CC. Recently I've noticed the tab label will flip to "Your Turn!" but the tone will sound when I open the tab, not when my turn is ready as it should.

I've been having issues with the speed game tones also for a while. One potential problem I've discovered is that my laptop's speakers go into standby mode after some set amount of time that they are not used, and take about 3 seconds to start up again once they are meant to be playing something. This always happens when I start a video if my speakers haven't been playing something for a while, the first couple of seconds for the audio aren't played. I still couldn't get the speed game tone to play for a Chrome tab when my speakers were not in standby mode, but that could be an issue for others.

I know Chrome changed the way it handles background tabs at some point. Unfocused tabs in a Chrome window are slowed or halted to preserve CPU. Someone in this thread mentioned that they weren't getting the audio notification unless the tab was in a window by itself, so this might be playing a part in that.

Why would you want speakers that go into standby?

It's not that I want them to do that, but I'm sure the reason is to preserve the battery. My laptop is 5 years old with Bang & Olufsen speakers, and the battery has gone to shit so that's probably why. If I wanted to I could find a way to turn that setting off somewhere, but it's not really an issue for me. I was just being thorough in my testing to pinpoint the problem here, it's an issue others may have for the missing audio notifications or it could be specific to a few laptop models.
