    I just updated my AT&T note 8 to 8.0. I notice that now all my text messages come through under the same sound. In 7.0 you could set up a different notifications sound for each contact. Is there any way to fix this? Please help!

    Textra has this option.

    Unfortunately that's been a major complaint of the update to Oreo. If you want individual ring tones for texts, you'll need to look at a different message app. Textra for sure does it, so do others. If you want just basic features textra might be a little overkill.

    Yeah, it's not Oreo itself but a change Samsung made to their message app, which happens to be included in this update. Nobody knows why they have done this.

    Love Textra. Very flexible and easy to set up. Lots of customization.

    I received an update on 4/2/18. I can no longer set different message sounds for my family members(or anyone else) when I receive a text. Is there a fix coming out soon?

    Just use a different message app (Textra, Chomp, Google Messages, you name it). It's just Samsung's app that doesn't support it.

    Send complaints to Samsung in the meantime.

    People are complaining on Sony forums as well, that implies this isn't a Samsung problem.
    Also, the individual notifications feature was in the contacts, not in the sms app.

    I use a text to speech app and it still manages to put personal ringtones into my contacts despite the update. Yay! The one I use is found on Google Play and is by Voxygen but there are a lot of them. This one was free at the time...not now. They are quite a lot of fun and also can be used throughout your phone to make your various notifications more meaningful and easily identifiable. Thank goodness the update didn't break this!
