New update does not allow to change the notification sound

Looking to change the notification sound. It used to be in customize, but now I cannot find it anywhere. It is not available? Am I over looking it?

Thanks.

Is there a People & Options in the individual message menu as Ann154 described in How do I set individual text tones on the Pixel?

Do you have version 6.4.42 updated 12/21/17?  That seems to be the latest update.  I'm still seeing the notification sound option via the three dots in the upper right-hand corner > customize > tones.

Might help to identify the make/model phone/device you have.

I was referencing what's on the Play Store listing and the app on one of my devices:

Verizon Messages - Android Apps on Google Play

Apparently that page is out of date since I've seen a few posts this morning where the app was updated again a day or so ago to version 6.5.0.  I'm not seeing that version on my device yet.

Which version do you have?

That instruction is for the Google Messages application not the Verizon Messages+ application.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Lifesaver. Thank you. Was unaware of those options. Problem solved.
