Notification tone for individual contact

Just Browsing

It's not there anymore. 


Hi @Mrjonesz73

Unfortunatly Samsung have removed this option in the latest update.  Saw a post earlier with the same issue. And the Mods have said that a update will be sent out which will bring it back, No timescale atm. 



I cannot believe I actually made a Samsung account just to express my hatred 4 this... Update. It makes no sense, notice how there aren't any likes on the matter. Who would appreciate an update like this? Why did this happen? Who got a  parking ticket during street cleaning and took it out on the rest of the world by making it so that every single f**king notification is the same? I generally have my phone on silent and detach myself, which, in a way, is a great thing but also causes missing notifications of importance.. constantly. I feel like I'm I'm  going to lose my f**king mind if I hear ANY sound OVER AND OVSD one more *****ing time. This is usually well before 11 a. M. I have tried changing it to a different tone, I have tried to find a notification sound that is peaceful for every notification but that doesn't exist.

MOST OF MY NOTIFICATIONS ARE ALREADY TURNED OFF. Please, for the love of God ..change this. I don't understand why anyone thought this was a good idea. Can anyone explain why they thought this was a good idea? Is there someone out there that only gets 3 notifications a day and they figured, well my life is so boring and meaningless anyway. Why make more than one noise? Please please please change this or I am switching to an iPhone!! The only thing that I actually like about the iPhone is  iMessage, besides that I am Samsung all the way and my attempts to persuade people to switching over haven't been successful but I was born to stand out not be part of a crowd and I have many Samsung products that I love and rave about. This just doesn't make any sense, if there is anyone out there in the world other than the developers that find this glitch update to be an improvement please come forward and tell me why. I just want to understand and attempt to maintain my sanity till something changes. Please.


I have researched everything trying to find a solution so please don't mention that getting new apps and changing my entire phone life around for hours is a solution because it just isn't a very good one.

Why did they do this?!?!  3rd party Apps is a sucky answer.  I am considering going back to my S6 until they get it fixed...or will I have the same issue on it?

You can use a third-party app to get the individual notification tones back for your contacts.  Textra is a free download which I found user-friendly.  This YouTube video explains the set-up:
