The Telegram messaging app has gained the power to create your personal notification tones and have the app use them as an alternative of default ones.

You’ll be able to add a number of audio information so as to add to your record of customized notification sounds, then simply set the one you’d like as your default in settings.

Whereas Telegram isn’t the one iOS app to supply this selection, too few apps really hassle to supply their customers with the power to make use of customized notification sounds.

Telegram for iPhone positive factors customized notification sounds

Actually, why is it that just about not one of the apps that ship notifications allow you to set customized audio to play when the notification arrives as an alternative of the default one?

It’s baffling that this space of customization has gone largely ignored by makers of messaging apps although Apple has supported customized alert tones in apps for a few years. Folks like myself gave up hope, accepting that WhatsApp, Messenger, Instagram and the like ship with their very own recognizable notification sounds that can’t be changed.

However typically an app’s trademark notification sound is jarring or simply plain annoying. Like with Telegram, for instance, which fortunately lets me decide a distinct notification tone from the default library of sounds. And so I went in and select “Pulse” as a result of, to me, the pulsing sonar sound conveys urgency and secrecy. I instantly affiliate that sound with my secret chats on Telegram and the hope is I’d know which app was nudging me with out even trying on the display.

Besides that’s additionally the AirDrop tone so now each time I get a brand new message on Telegram I mistake it for an incoming AirDrop switch. Not cool. See, and all as a result of Telegram wouldn’t let me set my very own sound for the incoming notification! Besides within the newest replace to the app, that’s precisely what builders have applied.

From a submit on the Telegram weblog:

Now you can flip any sound right into a notification tone, creating customized alerts out of your favourite music and even memes (and meows). Faucet a brief audio file or voice message in chat to immediately add it to your record of notification sounds, which you’ll assign to any chats.

Yup, it’s that simple to make use of your personal audio for Telegram’s notification sound. Or you’ll be able to go to the “Notification and Sounds” part of Telegram’s settings and decide a message kind (Non-public Chats, Group Chats and Channels). Subsequent, select “Sound” from the record and on the following display hit “Add Sound.” Now navigate to the audio file you’ve downloaded to your iPhone to make use of because the Telegram notification sound.

Or, because the weblog submit mentions, you’ll be able to simply press and maintain a brief voice observe or mp3 file in any chat and select “Save for Notifications.” When you’ve saved the sound, you’ll be able to entry it throughout all of your units within the Notifications and Sounds part.

In accordance with Telegram, this characteristic presently helps audio information and voice messages below 5 seconds as much as 300 KB in measurement. And that’s how simple it’s to offer Telegram some persona by having it play a customized audio file when the notification hits. Actually, this ought to be supported in far more apps than it’s right this moment.

We ought to be swamped by the sheer variety of apps that present help for customized notification sounds, shouldn’t we? However we aren’t. Truthfully, I don’t know why that’s the case (and it puzzles me as a lot as you). However I do know there are nice, superior sound packs freely obtainable on the net that beg for use for notifications. May we’ve got all apps steal this specific Telegram characteristic, please?
