Yes, before I had each person with their own ringtone (for phone calls) and notification tone (for text) so I knew who was contacting without even looking at my phone. Ugh. I hope this is fixed with a update soon

@DejaRacheal, could you please get back to me with which phone model that you have? There are a few users posting this thread that have a Samsung device and it's very confusing for me when I don't know which phone model everyone is using, if it's even an Xperia device. If you are using a Samsung device, please take a look at this post.

@74patty, sorry to hear about this.
Please take a look at the post that @Helpful posted regarding your Samsung device. For further assistance, please get in touch with the Samsung support.
@UTFilthy, I'm glad to hear that you were able to sort this out!

Since the update, I cannot set individual contact message tones... I dont like this. I had certain contacts with certain tones so that when I heard it I knew if it was someone I needed to reply to immediately or if it was a message that could wait. Is there any way to get this back? I certainly dont like this new update for that reason.

Hi @Harrisfamily6, welcome to our forum!
May I ask which device you are using? There has been a lot of posts from Samsung users after they updated their devices to Android 8.0 and if you are one of them, please have a look at the post below.
I hope that helps!

Hi again @Harrisfamily6, sorry for the late reply.
In that case I'd recommend that you take a look at the link below or that you get in touch with the Samsung support directly as this is a forum for the Sony Xperia devices!
Have a great day!

Just install Android Messages from Play Store.. Its a nicer app and allows setting of notification sounds for each individual contact. Nice and simple with a clean interface. No ads.

Hi @shalodge, that is a very good tip as well!
The Android messages application is the one that is preinstalled in our devices from Xperia XZs and onwards!
I have to agree with you, it's a very simple application but it does what it needs to do, send and receive text messages and some simple options to change messaging tone, block a contact from sending messages and so forth!
Thank you for helping out!

Great. So what. I can change the generic message tone for all messages. What we lost was the individual tones for different contacts! When will that feature come back?
Let's face it, some people are more important in our lives and knowing who has messaged without having to look everytime is a bother and almost a deal breaker.
