The ring for 5 minutes function on Android Device Manager is a great tool that I have used multiple times to find my phone (which I happen to misplace quite often).
The thing is, it doesn't work. Or rather, my phone will not ring even when given the cue from Android Device Manager to ring. I have it set up on my phone, and am able to locate my phone just fine. However, when I click ring, my phone beeps once, and there is a notification that says "Android Device Manager" with the subheading "Ringing...", but my phone never actually rings.
Does anyone know why this happens, or better yet, how to fix this? Any help would be great.
I have a Samsung Galaxy S6, and yes, Android Device Manager is set as an administrator on my phone.
edit: Upon looking into the Phone Administrator settings in Security, I found that the permissions do not mention anything about ringing the phone (https://goo.gl/photos/gt1iE6piQTVfYvnHA). Is this because that permission isn't at the administrator level, or do you think it is unavailable for some odd reason?
Update: So I managed to figure out that the only way it will ring is if my notifications volume is on. However, I don't usually have that on, and it will not turn that volume on full or even on at all by itself.
I also disabled battery optimization for Device Manager, but unfortunately it does not seem to do anything.
