Bug Description

The gmail notification sound is always 'Blip'.
Go to System-Settings and change the sound to 'Xylo' for example.

What you expected to happen?
New gmail notifications should use 'Xylo' now.

What happened instead?
gmail notifications still use 'Blip'.

The sms notification sound changed, so it looks like its only affecting gmail notifications.

I am on OTA 5 Meizu MX4 with account-polld 0.1+15.04.20150410-0ubuntu1

The UI is very confusing. Changing the Sounds->Messages->Message received sound is really only specific to the Messaging App and isn't used by other apps (I believe).
Apps that support ubuntu-push/account-polld are shown in the Settings->Notifications panel and currently they either use a) a default system wide sound or b) they supply a custom sound in the click package/manifest. Eventually this panel would allow selection of a custom sound per app but we haven't got there and the Messaging App would move to the Notifiations panel so it's consistent.

Sounds like what you are asking for is to have apps that show up in Notifications panel use the sound selected in Sounds->Messages->Message received as their default sound instead of hardcoded default they currently use? This sounds like a reasonable approach to use that value for the default if the click doesn't provide it's own.

@Bill If I'm not mistaken, notifications for Telegram messages also use the "Message received" sound.

Thanks to the patch contributed by Devid Antionio, we have a fix. Should I ask a silo for vivid+xenial+zesty, or which releases should I target?

mardy, there's a silo targetting all three.
