I just have the same issue and after dig in the phone settings, traced the cause to Galaxy Wearable App, I have the Galaxy Watch and a setting that should Not silence the phone's notifications was doing the oposite... To not silence the notifications on phone I need to set it to "Silence connected phone" 🤦
Even after the update mine continue to work if I have it set to sound. If I had a complaint, it is that I can't get the volume low enough on them.
Same here, only text message notifications are affected, notifications from other apps have sound. I also can't hear anything when selecting new notification sounds in the settings. And, no, it has nothing to do with the phone or the message app being set to silent, do-not-disturb, vibrate-only.
Go into settings for each app eg, messages , email etc. Open notifications. press and hold new messages. If "sound" shows as silent SET REQUIRED SOUND and should be ok. Even though it shows alert is on you have to choose a sound! weird but it works! The only text message alerts I was recieving were the contacts I had chossen a designated sound for! All makes sense now but who would of thought you have to choose a designated sound inorder to hear the alert! Hope this helps!!
