Snapchat Notification Sound has been successfully updated. Your new alert/ringtone will appear on all notifications from Snapchat.

In addition, you can use the “Call from Friends” or the “Missed Call” options to change your Snapchat ringtone.

Snapchat calls would be affected by changing the ringtone, as this is a system-level setting.

Here are the steps you can follow to change the sound of Snapchat notifications:

  • Choose “Sound and Vibration” under Settings.
  • To turn on notification sounds and vibrations, scroll down.
  • From the internal storage, you can choose a custom Ringtone or the preferred system sound.
    If you follow this step, you will receive all notifications with the same sound.

How to change Snapchat Notification sound on iPhone?

Guys, I know you may find this heartbreaking, but you cannot change Snapchat’s default notification sounds right now. Snapchat message alerts on the iOS App use pre-built sounds.

Why Snapchat does not offer iOS users the option to change the alert tone?

Snapchat developers have set a default alert tone (Not your phone’s default tone but the one they have set).

Perhaps you are wondering why changing Snapchat’s tone is not possible for apps like WhatsApp and Facebook.

In Snapchat audio/video calls, we can, however, adjust the sound. There is no default ringtone set for Snapchat’s audio/video calls by the developer team, so the ringtone that you hear will be the same as that of any other regular call.

If you are using an iOS device, you can change the ringtone for Snapchat audio/video calls as follows:

  • Your iOS device will display the Settings icon.
  • On the Sounds and Haptics tab, tap.
  • You can change the sound under the option Ringtone under Sound and Vibration Patterns. The sound options are numerous.
  • As this is a system-level setting that we modified, changing the ringtone would affect ringtones for all calls, not just Snapchat calls.
