    Please help me out with this issue, been trying to figure it out for days now.

    Before Android 10(Q) I could record a sound or voice, copy the *.wav file to external storage and then create a notification channel that uses that URI of that *.wav file in external storage, and it worked.

    Now with Android 10(Q) the push notificaiton comes in, the phone vibrates, but the push notification custom recording sound does not sound when the app is in the background. When the app is in the foreground I am using a different URI though from AppData folder.

    I have tried using external storage/directory.Notifications to store the custom sound but it does not work. Any suggestions please? This is the code in C# that I am using now and its now working. Does not matter if the suggestion is in JAVA, just need to know what the logic is, where I should store that custom sound file.

    From what I read in documentation, I got the hint that I should use MediaStore, but honestly dont know how to use MediaStore.

    >>>>>> Copty the custom file to exernal storage
    public async void CopyRecordingToExternalStorage(string filePath)
    {
    string externalDirPath = CrossCurrentActivity.Current.AppContext.GetExternalFilesDir(Android.OS.Environment.DirectoryNotifications).AbsolutePath;
    string recordingFileExternalPath = Path.Combine(externalDirPath, AppConstants.CUSTOM_ALERT_FILENAME);
    Java.IO.File storage = CrossCurrentActivity.Current.AppContext.GetExternalFilesDir(Android.OS.Environment.DirectoryNotifications);
    string state = Android.OS.Environment.GetExternalStorageState(storage);
