    Hi,

    Everyone says to change the notification sound, you go into setting and application and notification and then change it there.

    This DOES NOT WORK for many apps, INCLUDING google's own messenger program.

    Am I missing something or is this feature totally broken in android?
    This is a feature that worked for many of my older devices but will not work on my verizon samsung galaxy s8 with all the android updates that verizon supports.

    Can anyone let me know if there is another way to actually make my different apps have different notification sounds so I know which one is alerting me without looking?

    Thanks!

    It works for me on the apps that have sound notification.

    It works fine for me, Juggernaut62. :thinking:

    What Android version are you running on your S8? I'm [stuck] on Oreo, so I may not be able to help.

    You mentioned Google's Messenger. Can you run down the steps you take, perhaps even posting screenshots, to change its sound? Maybe something will jump out at someone.

    Works for all of my apps. I don't use Google's messages app (like all Google apps it has too little customisation for me, so Maps is actually the only Google app I use) but I can see the setting there and it opens the sound picker dialogue.
