Individual app notification sounds after Oreo update

I see a lot of questions regarding the loss of contact or text notification sounds after the Oreo update, but I have lost all of my individual app notification sounds. Is there a way to get these back? I have tried going into several different apps and made changes where I can, but some (such as The Weather Channel, Twitter) simply don't have that option, even though they used to have their own individual sound when a notification came through.

Re: Individual app notification sounds after Oreo update

After the Android software 8.0.0, 3.18.605.13 update on our HTC 10.0 phones, we keep getting unwanted notification sounds. Over and Over again. I have tried to deselect every app that could be giving a notification. The remaining notification is from my location settings. Why can't I turn the notification sound off for location? All I want is a notification sound for a new message. My phone worked perfect before this update, now it is very annoying all day long. I even turned the sound off, but that's not the answer.

I turned off the location setting, but I want updated weather on my home screan (just like before and no notification sound). While driving the location is updating and giving me a notification sound,,,,,stop it!

I would my phone to default to NO notifications after a software update and let me select the one I want.

After this update, all notifications were turned on,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,terrible.

I read where there are many complaints about this issue, please push a patch to fix this problem,,,now!
