My message app is 4.4.20.10 and it says it is the latest version. No customizations on threads. 😞

I'm in the uk. Us hasn't been updated. Also as you are on a phone lower than an S9 then the update may be delayed. Not sure. The only suggestion could be to email samsung cust serv direct . Hope it helps.

Thank you much! Guess I'll have to be patient. *sigh* I have messaged and emailed Samsung Canada. I just don't get how they didn't realize this was such an important feature. Such a daft move. But is seems like it made things easier for them, which ends up being more important than what is best for their customers. Sigh...and I have been a loyal Galaxy user for a long time.  A

There is an another option if you dont have update for app yet. Download and install apk manually from Apkmirror. Just download the newest one and give it a try. It works for me on S7/S7 Edge, S8/S8+ and also S9/S9+. Let me know if it helps. Regards.

 

Edit: ON S8 4.4.30.5 works aswell.

Android messages does not have the option to do individual message tones,  on the previous Samsung phones the option is in the contact app, when u edit a contact you can assign a ring tone and a message tone

 

Bring it back samsung

In updated Samsung Messages looks like this and for me it is kinda same like the option in Contacts before Oreo update.

This has really been a huge inconvenience.. Even the J3 gar the ability to have different notification tones for everything except texts... so you could have a tone for all texts, and a much quieter tone for things like Facebook or your kids Instagram account.  This is now a huge inconvenience because I want to get notified on my Facebook but I dont want to pay attention while I am at work, but need my texts while I am at work.  On the s9, you only get to choose one notification tone.  Please advise when this is corrected.

Seriously, this was March when you wrote.... is there an update. This is frustrating to be missing this feature. My whole family has Samsungs... we regret those that have migrated to the s9 because of this.
