How to Change Snapchat Notification Sound

Snapchat has almost a similar outlook on Android UI devices and iOS systems.  But don’t get deceived by the appearance. When you want to change the sound for Snapchat notifications, both iOS and Android devices will take an entirely different way.

Hence, we have developed two methods to change the notification sounds in Snapchat for iOS and Android devices with the latest updates.

Method 1: Changing Snapchat Notification Sound in Android

We have developed the method to change the Snapchat notification for Android 10 here. The process might be slightly different depending on the Android version you have on the smartphone. However, you shouldn’t be worried since the differences in the various Android versions will be in the button and menu placements only.

  • From the main screen, tap and hold on the Snapchat app until the app info appears.
  • Scroll down to notifications from the app info menus.
  • Tap on the notification option to open the notification settings.
  • Then you can scroll down to the ‘best friend message’ option and choose the sound option there.
  • Tap on the notification option to open the notification settings.
  • Then you can scroll down to the ‘best friend message’ option and choose the sound option there.

However, if you want to change the sound for all Snapchat notifications, you will have to follow the conventional method.

  1. From the smartphone settings option, choose the ‘app and notification’ menu.
  2. Scroll down to Snapchat.
  3. Click on the notification menu and then go to the ‘audible notification.’
  4. You will see the ‘sound’ option underneath the audible notification option.
  5. Tap on it and choose from the default sounds provided by Snapchat. Alternatively, you can use any soundtrack from your device.

These two ways help you customize the Snapchat notification sound for both best friends and all notifications.

Method 2: Changing Snapchat notification sound in iPhone

Previously, iPhone users couldn’t change the Snapchat notification sounds. However, the latest updates have enabled iPhone users to change and customize the notification sound too.

  1. Open your iPhone settings.
  2. From the app menu, choose Snapchat.
  3. Tap on the notification. It won’t allow you to change the sound from here.
  4. Go back to the settings and choose the ‘Sounds and Haptics’ option.
  5. Scroll down to the Text tone.
  6. Click on the favorite soundtrack there, and it will ring whenever Snapchat alerts you of any messages or texts.
