Hi, I'm using a wav file placed on res/raw to notify a new push notification.
The sound (stored in the www folder) is working on iOS correctly, but on Android the sound and the vibration is fired multiple times.

@noldotar do you have more than on app on your device registered with the same Push Project from Google? Other than that can you send me an example payload.


I don't know which kind of payload I can send to you, but I can show you how I use the push-plugin on my app. This is the code running every time the app is launched:

document.addEventListener("deviceready", function() {
    // Push Notification
    var push = PushNotification.init({
        android: {
            senderID: "************",
            sound: true,
            vibrate: true,
        ios: {
            sound: true,
            badge: true,
            alert: true
        windows: {},

    push.on('registration', function(data) {
        devicePushId = data.registrationId

    push.on('notification', function(data) {
  'New Push Notification');

        // I add missing additionalData
        if (data.additionalData) {
            data.additionalData.title = data.title;
            data.additionalData.message = data.message;

        // redirect to landing page
        if (
            document.location.href = '#/push/' + JSON.stringify(data.additionalData);
        else if (data.additionalData.order)
            document.location.href = '#/order/' + JSON.stringify(data.additionalData.order);
    });'Plugins loaded');
}, false);

I have more than one account register with that device, do you mean that if more than one user is registered with that device... Google is sending as many messages as many as registered customers and not one message for each pushId sent?

20/10/2015 09:39:01 - New Push to 6 users
            Customers IDs: *****-t1DIy_V6WyGKxsSHsN0NSOSc-nuUJP5m, *****-1bY2KVbfLQBA0W2oI31TgHUlYeoy1yRhC4ahNTQnhG25rjWgc_kIC98Mvn9lXoW, *****-LQje3Bop4Cxtd36MO-nDvj_nm1r-0uzZG3WquxowW45eFAeFW0D5TsicDy, APA91bG5rCYqAh-*****, APA91bGlaEugixnA3qdodM7szL6zc7cxPgIvnLiHuqXmH9q-*****, APA91bHGTygrrtVijl7QwklF_MdRHvVMDTzqFbbplrtxX3yoZ7_*****
            {"soundname":"sound","title":"Push test","message":"Text message"}

That is definitely not the case, @noldotar . Only one copy of the payload is delivered to each matched registrationId, that's for sure.


Ok, I found the issue. My mistake on the payload: I was pushing all registration_ids for each single push
