Yes.

I miss the VPS notifications with the sounds.

If anyone has issues with it, they could disable the sounds/notifications. Plus it also gives a peace of mind that the PC is protected with the latest VPS version.

Yes absolutely it was iconic.
Also for the reason and logic DavidR has put forward.
And if someone doesn't want to hear it, The option was there to disable Voice announcement

If it doesn't happen to be working - the first indication you get is when avast reports the VPS is out of date - a day late and a dollar short, as they say.

The way it was people had that very option to disable the auto update notification and voice over.

I still on occasion bump into that youtube clip of a wrestling match and the announcers PC piped up with the old 'Avast! - virus database has been updated - iconic, yes, different yes, sets avast apart from the crowd.

I really miss Joanna Rubio saying my "Avast ha sido actualizado". Whoever did not like to hear this Avast feature, could easily turn it off. It was Avast trademark so bring it back and make it so again.

I think what you need is a catchy title if you want to attract voters. Like " I want my vps voice alert back; Vote ", or something for that effect. Just saying.

I don't need an announcement to tell me that my Virus DB has been updated.

It would be nice however to have an announcement if something went wrong
and the streaming updates stopped working.
