Hello. After the Android 11 update I'm not able to change the notification sound for individual apps on my S20 Ultra. On Android 10 I was able to set different notification tones for different apps but now I've searched everywhere on the 11 update and I can't. Is there a way or is it just not possible anymore?

I just checked both the Samsung Messages (stock) app and Gmail on my s20+ and they both have the ability to change noticication tones...   on Gmail, go to settings/apps/gmail/notifications/mail or misc./sound   and pick which sound you'd like;  you can use same process with Samsung Messages...

 

I guess this should work for your Ultra....?  Good luck.  keep us posted.

I can do this with my S20+ so you should be able to do the same.  Go to settings/notifications - - then pick recently sent or "more"...    select the app:  general notifications;  sound/  then pick the sound you want

 

Hope this works for you!

I did that put some apps just don't have the option to have a specific tone such as Gmail and Messages. Although I was able to change Whatsapp tone there isn't an option in Messages and Gmail

I couldn't find it either because of that unhelpful menu choice 'miscellaneous' So for the Galaxy A71 Android 11 it's settings/apps/gmail/notifications/miscellaneous/sound. Thanks to DGM for their post.

Oops I just noticed this thread is for S20.. Well hope it's helpful anyway.
