To Set A Pre-Installed Sound As Text Messaging Ringtone On Galaxy S9 And Galaxy S9 Plus…
- Bring up the app you’re using to send text messages;
- Go to its Settings menu, from the main window;
- Navigate to Notifications, followed by Notification Sound;
- Once the list with pre-installed sounds extends, go through it and pick up your new favorite text messaging ringtone.
To Set A Custom Sound As Text Messaging Ringtone On Galaxy S9 And Galaxy S9 Plus…
- Copy the audio file (MP3, WAV, whatever) that you want to use on the internal memory of your smartphone;
