How to put different sound to groups and conversations on WhatsApp

WhatsApp has a setting that allows you to set different custom notifications for individual and group conversations.

This is very useful to differentiate between the two types of chats without looking at your mobile and can help you have less interruptions while you are working or doing any other task and you get a message, because if it is from a group it is more likely that it is not anything urgent than if it is a direct message.

Thanks to this setting you can modify the sound of the notifications and make it different for new messages in individual and group conversations.

To customize these settings, you must open the WhatsApp app and then tap on the Settings icon in the lower right corner of the screen. Once inside, open the Notifications section and inside you will see several sections. The ones that interest you this time are message notifications and group notifications…

Within each you can turn on or off the notifications for group messages or private chats and also change the sound, which is the really useful option in this case. Tap on Sound and then choose the new sound you want to set for each type of message. Finally, tap Save in the upper right corner.

Once you make this change to the WhatsApp settings, you will have one sound for a private conversation and a different sound for group conversations. This way you can differentiate between them without looking at your smartphone screen, although if you want even more personalization you can set a different tone for each conversation or group.

WhatsApp does not offer many customization options. Therefore, it can be very useful to make adjustments like this one to make the day-to-day life of the application easier. Having a “filter” that helps you differentiate what type of message you are receiving without having to look at the iPhone screen can be more useful than it might seem at first.
