However, it really takes a moment to change the notification sound of WhatsApp and, above all, not everyone knows that it is possible to select adifferent ringtone for each contact of WhatsApp. So let’s see how to change the WhatsApp ringtone, both on iPhone and Android.

The first thing to do is to start WhatsApp and click on theSettings icon, i.e. the one with the gear at the bottom right. At this point click onNotificationsand here you can choose; depending on whether you want to set individual messages or groups, chooseSoundsfromMessagenotificationsorGroup notifications. The appropriate screen will open where you can choose from the numerous system ringtones which are right for you.

But before we talked about changing the ringtone for a single WhatsApp contact: how to do it? Again it’s very simple: open theChattab and look for the contact whose ringtone you want to change.

Then click on it and then click on your friend’s name, at the top of the screen: at this point click Customnotifications and thenSound messages, then selecting the notification you prefer.

If instead, you want to change the ringtone of voice calls, the procedure is a bit different, because WhatsApp uses the same ringtone as normal calls. In this case, therefore, you will have to go toSettings(the general iPhone ones, though!), ThenSoundsand thenRingtone.
