WhatsApp allows you to set Custom Notification Sounds for each individual Chat in your WhatsApp account. You will find below the steps to Change WhatsApp Notification Sound or Tone on iPhone and Android Phone.
Change WhatsApp Notification Sound
With your phone constantly alerting you about various notifications from various Apps, it can be hard to know which alerts are coming from where.
For this reason alone, you may want to change WhatsApp Notification sound on your phone to something different from other notification sounds, so that you can know that you have received a WhatsApp Message, without looking at your phone.
In-fact, the custom notification feature in WhatsApp allows you to setup different notification sounds for different Contacts, so that you can know who is trying to Contact you on WhatsApp, without even having to look at their names.
