    I wonder if anyone can help with a minor issue I have. I recently updated the Facebook app on my Pixel, and it automatically changed the notification sound to 'Facebook Pop'. It's actually a new, but hardly noticeable sound that showed up on my phone. I noticed it when I was setting a new sound for a contact. Now I can't change the notification sound for Facebook back to what it was. Any thoughts on what I can do to change it back? Thanks in advance!

    If you go to the app's settings are you not seeing the Notification options? (Menu button, scroll down to App Settings, Notifications, Ringtone)

    It is gone now. The Facebook update removed it. No way of changing the notification sound.

    That's odd. Have you tried uninstalling the app and re-installing it? I have the latest update available and it is still showing on mine. I'm on the beta, though.

    Tried all of that. That's how I originally changed to the sound I wanted in the first place. Now there's a 'Notifications Settings' tab below 'App Settings' tab, and there isn't an option to change ringtone or sound.

    what about the slider to turn them on or off? does that prompt an extra menu or something? Or maybe turning them off and back on brings the menu back?

    I'm running the latest (as far as I know) and mine has the Notification menu (with the ability to change the sound) right between the word "General" and the words "Sounds in the App".
    Under About it says I'm running Version 123.0.0.18.71

    125.0.0.5.80 here (beta program) and it's still there. For those of you who are seeing the option, are you on a Google Pixel? I'm on an S8 so I don't know if maybe this is a device-specific 'bug'?

    Can you try switching to the beta program (you can always go back to the main release) and see if it shows?

    How does I switch to the beta program? There was a new update for Facebook the other day, so I updated the app hoping it would fix the notification sound issue. Now I don't even get notifications. At all. I'll try something else, I guess...

    Here's how to become a Beta Tester. I did notice, though, that on the last update, my ringtone was reverted to the Facebook Pop, BUT I could still change it afterwards.
