    Default Facebook Messenger Tone

    I really like the Facebook Messenger alert tone, how can I apply that to normal sms/iMessage? The tone is not visible in the default sounds in in iOS.

    Thanks for your time

    Are you talking about the 'swish' sound? If so that should be available as a choice for any notification.

    I just looked, too...

    Nope, not that one.
    The one which comes with Facebook Messenger app, not with the Facebook app.

    Ah, I see. See if you can find it online and then install it manually

    Would you somehow be able to download the "swoosh" sound? (seems pretty awesome to me)

    Find the app that has the sound and follow this guide:

    Any idea where I can find the tone you hear when calling someone over the facebook messenger app?
    The ringing sound you hear before the recipient picks up the call.
    Thanks!

    The sound files are in the application. Just open them via iFile on your device and search for the sound files. If you have afc2add installed you can also use your computer to detach in your device throughout the file system and find the file

    Just go to the settings in the Facebook app. Settings>Notifications> Mobile Push> set for sound at the top. Then go to the phone's settings>Notifications> Messenger>turn on sound. That's it. It goes "Ding"

    Hi, what about the latest chat tones for FB Messenger, it's like a ping pong game, you send a text and it pings, and you receive one as an echoed pong.
    Where can I find that one?

    Here's a .zip file containing all of the sounds in the current release of FB Messenger. You will need to extract the files, find the one you want and sync it with iTunes.

    You probably have and outdated version because the one in post 16 is not even on my phone. It's the old sound I used to have and it's a click-ding sound which is not what I was after.

    Actually, it's not even in this archive. I'll try to register one now.

    EDIT: I've managed to register the sound. You can hear it after the keyboard keys clicks, just a little tic-tac. And then my friend replies with tac-tic ECHOED.

    EDIT2: I've just figured out that the volume was so low in the registration because actually, FB and FB Messenger sounds rely on Audio/Video volume rather than on Ringer/Alert Volume and at the moment of the registration it was low. If you can't recognise the sound, please let me know and I'll try to redo the registration.

    What do you mean by "outdated version". It's the sound alert currently on my Messenger app that's up to date. So what's outdated? There are other choices on Android.

    That was the sound for received messages when you are not using messenger and it's out of focus app. If you are using messenger and the app is active, you don't get the sound you linked me.
