Re: Changing message notification tone since oreo update

Hello. I hope you can help. I have the galaxy s8. Yesterday, I did a system update to the oreo software and now I don't have the option to set individual text message tones for individual contacts. Before the update I had different text message notifications/ringtone for different contacts but now the option is gone  The option used to be available when you edit a contact. It was an option right below the "ringtone" option.  I can still set separate ringtone for individual contacts but not individual text message tones. Please help if you can!  I'm so frustrated!

Re: Changing message notification tone since oreo update

I can't change my personal notification tones either. Please help. I need to have this option to know whose texting and whether it's critical or not.

Re: Changing message notification tone since oreo update

Ok, that covers changing the general message tone but what about individualized tones for certain people? I liked having a certain text tone for when a relative texted me and now that's gone as far as I can find.

Re: Changing message notification tone since oreo update

I spent 2 hours on the phone with Samsung and there is no solution except to remove the update. They removed that option with the Oreo update. I chose to download a new messaging application. I used Textra and I now have my individualized message tones back. Shame on Samsung!!! Hope this helps
