How To Change Snapchat Notification Sound on Android & iOS?

Are you tired of the same old Snapchat notification sound? From its fantastic features to its fun and exciting camera lens, Snapchat has everything a user could ever need to keep in touch with friends and family. Except for its distracting notifications that blow up even if someone types a single space in your chat.

You might consider limiting or permanently disabling notifications in order to sustain your peace. However, while you won’t have to deal with the pesky notifications this way, you won’t be able to keep up with your friends’ messages, which is a BIG NO.

But hold on! The good old option still exists to change your Snapchat notification sound and avoid hearing the annoying high-pitched “Bedoop” ever again! Don’t know how to do that? Well, that’s fine; let me show you around.
