How To Change Your SMS Alert Tone On Your Samsung Galaxy Note 9?

Notification sounds are vital because they make sure that you do not ignore your messages, make sure you receive calls, or let you rise from your bed when your alarm sounds. Even if there are so many things we can say to highlight how vital sound is, it is obvious that not everyone knows how to edit their notification sounds. This problem can easily be rectified by adhering to the instructions in this tutorial.

Because Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was massively hyped, it comes as no shock to see iPhone owners migrating to Android. But there is an issue, the settings on iOS phones are not the same as the ones on Android phones like the Galaxy Note 9. This issue has made it so hard for fresh Android users to alter features like the message ringtone.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 can change the preloaded notification sounds by having them replaced with ringtones that are your preferred songs from Adele, Kizz Daniel, Stormzy and the rest. You only require the audio file of the custom sound you intend to use.
