On iPhone – Open the Settings app and tap Sounds & Haptics. Tap Text Tone and select the tone you want.

Inside the Snapchat app itself – Tap the Chat icon, Tap and hold on a name in that list – a popup menu will appear. Tap Chat Settings and next tap Notification Sounds. Select a new sound.

NOTE – You must be a Subscriber+ in order to change your notification sounds within the Snapchat app.

We will show you a step by step guide for each smartphone model, with screenshots to make it easier for you to understand if you didn’t get the answer you wanted from the quick answer above. Let’s jump into it.

Changing Snapchat Notification Sound on Android or iPhone

On the Snapchat app itself

Do this to change the notification sounds on Android:

1. Open the Snapchat app
– Note you have to be a Snapchat+ Subscriber to change the notification sounds inside the app itself.

2. Tap on the Chat icon on the bottom menu
– You will see a list of your recent chats once you tap that icon.

3. Tap and hold on any name from the list of active chats
– A popup menu will show up on the screen

4. Tap on Notification sounds and change the default sound to what you want

5. Choose the sound you like to set

On Android devices

On Android devices it is probably the easiest way to change the notification sound for individual apps or Snapchat. Here’s how:

1. Open the Settings app on your phone

2. Tap on Apps & Notifications ( On some devices this might be called Apps & Permissions )

3. Tap Apps to see a list of all installed apps on your device

4. Locate Snapchat on the list and tap on it

5. Tap Notifications and then Sound to show the list of available sounds to use.

6. Select the notification sound you want and tap ok.

Now every time a new notification comes in on Snapchat, you will hear the new sound you just set

On iPhones

1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone

2. Tap on Notifications

3. Locate Snapchat app and tap on it

4. Make sure that Allow Notifications and Sounds are turned ON.

5. Go back to Settings and tap on Sound & Haptics

6. Tap on Text Tone which by default will be set to Note sound.

7. Set the notification sound you like

Important note – It is recommended to choose a sound under the Alert Tones because they will be shorter, which is what you want for these type of notifications. The others are more for apps that use calls.

8. Tap Back and you’re done.
