Default Notification Sound Settings/help

Can I start off by saying this is my first HTC phone and I am very impressed by it.

One query I have is - is it possible to have different notification sounds for e-mail, texts and other apps like whatsapp?

Yes, for email, go into the email app, choose settings, your email address, and ringtones and choose one. For text, go into messaging, settings, choose ringtone. Most other apps allow for this as well and the options are similar.

for those notifications i had to add the sounds into the SD Card folder called "Notifications". I did it via PC, I heard it doesn't work well if done on the phone, but that's worth a shot as well. if you don't see them show up in the list of available notifications, try a restart

I have a folder structure in my SD card for ringtones and notifications and its worked since I've had the Hero.

Root of SD(not in any folders) make a folder named "Media" inside this make two folders named "Ringtones" and another named "Notifications". You can save snippets in these for your ringtones and notifications.

I remember back in the days ringtones were limited to 30 seconds, not sure if this is still the case or not.

If it is, grab an audio editing program, there are many free choices on Google, and crop an audio file to 30 seconds or less and it should work.

Another option is to download the app Zedge from the Market. Lots of good audio to choose from.

Default Text Message Sound Won't Change

For whatever reason, I'm unable to change my text message sound (which I assume is whatever tone is in the Notifications section).

At first I thought it was an issue with the custom audio file I was trying to use, but then I found that I'm unable to change it to ANY sound, even the ones that came with the phone.

Help?

If you're using the default SMS app, you can change the sound there, open up the messaging app, click the 3 dots on the top right, click settings then notifications.

Default Can't Set Silent Notification Sound

Hi everyone. I'm sorry for the long post, but my problem is a little difficult to explain. I have a fully-updated, non-rooted, stock, HTC One with Sprint. I'm having a problem with notification sounds; specifically, with silent notification sounds.

For certain applications, I need to use the "Silent" notification sound. I use this for notifications in a game (Wordfeud) and also for certain, specific contacts (via an app named "SMS Popup"). There is a "Silent" notification sound already built-in and I've always used this on my prior phone (an Evo 3D) with no problem. In SMS Popup, however, the built-in "silent" notification sound doesn't work. When I select it, it defaults back to the phone's default ringtone sound. I wasn't sure where the bug is (the app or the OS), so I figured I'd just make my own silent sound and use that. I did that, selected it, and it worked (I'd get the notification icon, a notification vibration, but no audible sound, as expected).

When you specify a custom notification sound, it then appears in in the regular, Android notification sound-picker interface from that point forward. I've added a few custom sounds already and this works just fine. However, once I specify a custom, SILENT sound, the standard, Android notification sound-picker interface will crash every time I try to use it. The only way I can make the sound-picker interface work again is if I delete the custom, silent sound from the file system (fyi: I use ES File Explorer for all of this).

I figured the problem might have had something to do with the way I encoded the sound. My first try was 0 a second sound, but then I tried 1 second and then 2.1 seconds. I've tried WAV and MP3 and I tried various bitrates, etc. Confusingly, I even tried making a file named "almost_silent" (MP3 and WAV), which has sound, but is quiet enough to be inaudible. That causes the problem too! Finally, I downloaded some other, random, "silent ringtone" MP3 from the internet and that ALSO causes the problem.

If I pick any other custom, NON-silent sound, everything works just fine. It's only silent (or nearly silent) sounds that cause the problem. I'm at my wit's end here. Can anyone else confirm whether their phone has this problem too? Any idea what could be going on?

Thank you!

Default HTC ONE NOTIFICATION Sounds

Try setting everything back to stock & install ICS+ ENHANCED RINGER CONTROL by Brian Histop from the GOOGLE PLAY STORE.

This app gives back some of the functionality that was merged/lost in the upgrade from ICS to JELLY BEAN. KUDOS to EarlyMon for sharing this gem w/us all in a previous discussion.


Please keep us posted on the outcome.

Thanks Kolio! Do you know, is this app meant to replace things like the "SMS Popup" app that I'm already using? (as far as I know, Android has never had the ability to have contact-specific notification sounds for text messages; only phone calls).

Thanks again.

I don't believe so,I've never bothered to indidualize SMS notification sounds. There are numerous 3rd party SMS apps & dialer apps in the GOOGLE PLAY STORE that allow for a deeper level of customization for each contact.

Ok, I asked just to know if I should remove it. The bug isn't with this app (SMS Popup is a great app that I've always loved since my G1). Rather, the bug is actually with this phone when a silent notification sound is selected. I have the problem in Wordfeud, K-9 Mail, and SMS Popup. In any of these, if I pick the built-in "silent" sound, they make a default sound, anyway. If I pick a custom, silent sound file, it completely breaks the notification sound picker.

I will definitely check out our suggestion though, as soon as I can calm my 6 month old down enough so that I'm able to actually think again. ;-)

ohh, I see. I really appreciate your help Kolio, but after researching it, I don't think the Enhanced Ringer app will help in my case. Of course, there are many apps that can notify you when certain events happen. Many times, I want the notification, but not the sound. They almost never let you say: show an icon, vibrate the phone, but don't play a sound. The built-in "silent" sound addresses that. I don't need a sound every time it's my turn to play a word or every time I get an email (for instance). However, I do want to continue to get audible notifications when I get a text message. There seems to be a bug with this phone (or sense [or android]) where it doesn't work if you specify a silent sound. It's really bizarre. 8-/

With the level of customization that you're looking for, the app TASKER (again in the GOOGLE PLAY STORE) sounds like the only application/solution that is up to the task, pardon the pun.

BTW, TASKER has its own dedicated forum. You should be able to find out if this app will accomplish what you're looking for.

Thanks Kolio, I'll check it out. However, this is pretty easy to do on any Android phone, just not on the HTC One. I've had my phone configured this way since my G1 (followed by my Cliq, then my Evo 3D). It's just that there's a bug when I pick the "silent" sound (the bug being, it's not silent). If I specify my own silent MP3 or WAV file, the sound picker crashes the next time I open it. If it weren't for the bug, no separate app would be needed.

OK,I see what you're getting at now (I think).

Only other suggestion I can think of is contacting the developer of the apps in question (WORDFEUD,etc....) to suggest a silent option for notifications.

WELCOME TO ANDROID FORUMS Jordanf1end!

Do you have any kind of aftermarket volume control application loaded on your phone?
Also,while you're at it,could you list the carrier you're using?
It could possibly be something that others may be experiencing that's unique to your specific carrier.

THX!

sounds like you have the notification settings off for those notification types.

settings - sound tab - volumes. you have three different settings there.

also, and to add from kolio, has this happened from day one? does it occur on wired as well as wireless headphones?

No i do not.

I am with AT& T, this is really annoying hoping to figure it out

also when i go to volume, music and videos are turned all the way up

it seems as though i can hear it through the headphones sometimes but not all. weird.

sometimes you can hear the sounds and sometimes not? that is interesting.

have you had this happen from day one of picking the phone up? did you install or uninstall any apps prior to this?

have you tried different headsets? are you using the stock buds of your phone came with them or after market?

what music app are you using? stock? aftermarket?
if the latter then that particular app may not allow those sounds to be heard. same for other aftermarket apps--they too may not allow the notifications to come through.

In the notifications selection screen, there appears to be no facility to add new ones. (eg in the equivalent ringtones screen there is the + icon top right) I have added sound files into the notifications folder, however, these don't appear in the selection list. Could someone please assist. (the solution is probably easy, but I have not found it yet)

I have found that the method of installation affects the success of installation of new notification sounds. Using either direct connect via USB, or Wi-Fi File Explorer Pro, I can install MP3s into my SD/media/audio/notifications folder from my computer and get them to appear properly. DL'ing them directly from a site (most recently Oringz.com), onto phone, nor using Air Droid (which I like better the WiFI Explorer) doesn't seem to work properly. Hope it helps!

The default notification tone can vary, dependent upon which variant of the ONE you have.
Do you have an unlocked variant or, a Carrier specific model?

EDIT:

Sorry,I missed the fact that you're on AT&T,& I'm assuming that you have their variant of the ONE.
In absence of a definitive answer,here's AT&T's support page for the ONE,w/links to Chat Line/User Forums,etc..

Hi, I'm also having an issue with my HTC One with the notification when I'm listening to the radio/music with the headphones in with not receiving the notification sound coming through the headphones...both with the headphones that came with the phone and my own set?
I came from a HTC One S where the notification sound came through the headphones. Could anyone shed any light on this?

Default Sound Sets?

On previous HTC phones they've always had the option to change the different "sound sets", so I could had specific ringtones for work and others for personal. Can't seem to find this setting on the HTC One, anyone know how to do it?

I came from a HTC One S where the notification sound came through the headphones. Could anyone shed any light on this?

Is this an International version of one from the U.S.? I haven't personally run into this on my HTC One on Sprint here in the U.S. I don't use wired headphones, just my LG Bluetooth ones, but I get the notification sounds while playing music or even being on a call.

What app are you playing music with? Maybe it is specific to the app. I know there are a few that seem to take over my phone. For example, some apps make it so that I can't skip tracks from my headphones. It seems to monopolize the phone so it can't receive extra commands. Usually they are games.

For music, I use PowerAmp. I never use Google Music/stock music player. I also have never actually tried using the FM Radio. I've used TuneIn Radio a few times, but don't recall whether I got notifications while I was using it or not. I will give it a try later today.

Angry How do i shut off text notifications when i'm on a call or listening to music

I'm talking about the annoying double beep (almost like call waiting) the phone makes when i receive a text while im talking to someone. I still want notification sounds when im not on a call so I dont want to silence them enitrely. I dont remember this happening on my One X, is this a new thing?

I bought it SIM free from a friend of a friend so I can only presume it's an European model is there a way to find out if it's an international model?
I'm just using the stock fm radio and stock music player like I did on my old HTC One S.

Default Customizing notifications

I am on day 3 with the One and so far I am fairly pleased with my choice over a GS4. One feature that my wife's GS4 has that I would LOVE is the ability to change the vibration pattern for certain contacts/notifications. Is there any way (short of root) that I can add that kind of functionality to the One or is that a TouchWiz only feature?
Thanks all!

There's an app I've noticed in the Play store that does that. Since I was never interested in doing anything of the sort I didn't bookmark it, but there is one in there.

I found the app Vybe ( I hope I never have to explain THAT name to any friends!) but you have to create your own vibration patterns, it doesn't have any pre-installed to choose from...
I will play around with that for a while and let everyone know how it works longterm

Default Option for "Phone Only" ringer?

Hi Guys,

Just wondering if anyone has seen a solution to have EVERYTHING silent on the HTC One except the phone ringer.

Reason being is I like to sleep but with my phone ringer still on at night just in case of emergency (No home line). With the HTC One it's either ALL notifications or none....or vibrate (Which still wakes me up if someone texts or sends a message while I'm sleeping)

Has anyone found a decent option/app for this? Thanks.

Just turn notifications off in your message app, that's what I do - only takes a few seconds.

Does this cover emails, whatsapp messages, tweets, etc....or do I have to go into all of those and silence them as well?

As far as emails are concerned they won't update if you have wifi and mobile data switched off which is what I normally do before switching off at night.

I don't use Whatsapp or Twitter, but don't they also use wifi/mobile data?.

For those of you looking to set different notifications sounds for individual apps, I came across an app called MegaSound the other day that does just that.

That's probably the best idea I've heard yet. I suppose I could turn off wifi and data and just have to deal with text messages (Of which I get few these days) and have my ringer set on normal.
