So I've been having a **bleep** of a time trying to set custom sounds to different apps. When I first got the phone, about 6 months ago, I was able to change sounds without issue.
I wanted to change the sounds to Gmail and the Messages app, can't find a way to do it. I've googled it, followed every walkthrough I could find but once I get to the Notification Settings in a given app, there is nothing there that allows me to select any notification sound, custom or otherwise.
I tried changing the universal Notification sound in Sounds and vibration in the phone's Settings app but the custom sounds I set when I first got the phone are still playing.
And this is where I'm lost, I have no idea how it was so easy when I first got the phone but now, it's a mystery.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Then go back and assign individual sounds for different types of gmail notifications.
Same for all other apps. You can also assign different notification sound to contacts. Take it a step further for when you in a meeting or dinner table. Your fone is on vibrate. You can assign a different vibration style to contacts and notifications
Some people don't know that you can tap on the wording even if there is a toggle beside it.
