Most notifications I get from my Android are not urgent. But Text messages (SMS) probably are.

I would like my phone to not stop notifying me about Text messages until I finally acknowledge it.

How can I do this?

I'm running the latest "Pixel Experience" mod on a Pixel 4A.

I'm willing to use any app that can do this for me.


  • Replace Your SMS Ringtone with a long one - It is a better approach than an infinity loop that may drain out the battery.

You could use an app like Missed Notifications Reminder (F-Droid / Google Play) to achieve this, which "allows to monitor notifications from any applications which are important for You and perform sound reminder periodically" (taken from the app's description). I have not tried it myself, so no guarantees how well it works – but going by it's description it should do exactly what you want.
