Notification.sound

Deprecated
This feature has been removed from the Web standards. Though some browsers may still support it, it is in the process of being dropped. Avoid using it and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

The sound read-only property of the Notification interface specifies the URL of an audio file to be played when the notification fires. This is specified in the sound option of the Notification() constructor.

Syntax

var sound = Notification.sound;

Value

A USVString.

Examples

The following snippet is intended to fire a sound along with the notification; a simple options object is created, then the notification is fired using the Notification() constructor.

var options = {
  body: 'Do you like my body?',
  sound: 'audio/alert.mp3'
}

var n = new Notification('Test notification',options);

n.sound // should return 'audio/alert.mp3'
