Rydah you fail to explain how to set individual notifications when the steps you give arent available... I have a galaxy s10... before system update I followed said steps and was good, after however I cant do not and there is no option for customers notification on the message app like there use to be...
Hey @Tiggerkee, it looks like I managed to help resolve your issue. Could you please mark my previous post as a "Solution" so that others with the same question can quickly find an answer?
your joking,that's not a solution,you didn't resolve anything,because it breaks after each message thread cleanup.
THANK YOU! I've been screaming about this for MONTHS! Everyone says you can add custom text tones. Sure you can. You tag the message thread. BUT THIS DOESN'T WORK IN GROUP TEXT MESSAGES! It was present in Nougat and taken away in Oreo and continued into One UI.
Sorry for jumping in here. I have a Note 9 and came across this thread.
I get automated messages. From my pharmacy reminding me to fill my meds. I want a nice quiet tone so I know who it is and it doesn't disturb anyone. I know this message can wait. I get messages from my alarm company. I want a loud obnoxious tone when someone is breaking into my house. 75% of my messages are Group/team/family messages. I want to know who they are before I did my phone out. As has been mentioned, I can tag the thread but I have to save those messages. Even saving the messages from the computer at my pharmacy. Why?
I read a thread long ago where someone reported that this feature was removed due to a vote of the customers. I sure as heck didn't vote for it. No one asked me.. Why was it removed? Why wasn't it returned? The software was already written. Simply as it back to the contacts app.
I love my Note 9. I love One UI. This, as far as I'm concerned is the ONLY thing wrong with this OS.
I am a volunteer for an emergency service and we are notified by a SMS from any one of 53 numbers for assistance. Previously, the one contact had all numbers listed and that contact was allocated a very long, loud siren SMS tone which was guaranteed to wake anyone in the middle of the night.
I have just upgraded from a S5 phone to a S10e and find this capability is not available.
Who is going to explain to the Coroner for the delay in attending????
NOT GOOOD ENOUGH SAMSUNG
For some reason I am unable to reply to your Solution/Comment. YES it does work for individuals but it does not work for a Group, unless I individually select each person and send a group message. That is not what I wanted. In my contacts I have 200 contacts categorized as WORK, I want to have a separate text notification for them. ???

When you open your contacts, you should see the section where your groups are located. Select the group you want to change the notification for. There should be an option at the top to edit the group. When you select Edit, there is an option to change to notification sound.
