    I tried restart/clearing data/cache/force stop, and nothing works. I need to have different sounds for work and personal so i can react quickly to work stuff.

    Welcome to Android Central! Where does the process seem to break down? When you go to the Hangouts menu to change the default notification tone, do you get a list of all available tones? When you select a tone, does it play a sample for you? After you select the tone, does it show as the default tone in the menu?

    I try both in general settings as well as individual messages/groups. It opens, shows the list of available sounds, and plays a sample. I select one and click set notification tone, the list closes, and it's still shows the default for sound. Doesn't change

    Which phone do you have? Are any of these tones saved to an SD card (if present)?

    I have an LG G6 and they saved internally, not on .y SD card

    Hmm, can't wipe the cache partition on that phone. Do you have any 3rd party apps intended to control sounds or notifications?

    Try temporarily uninstalling Zedge, just to see if it's related.

    Hmm, running out of ideas. Does this happen only with custom tones, or also with preinstalled tones?

    I can change it to the preinstalled tones on the phone, but nothing that I download

    Have you already tried copying those files to the ringtones folder?

    It seems Zedge is working a bit different now. See here.

    I have a similar problem. and I also gave Hangouts all 7 permissions on Android 7.0. In Hangouts, I changed the "Incoming calls" "Sound" to a ringtone I desire for junk calls (those calls from people not in my Contacts). I then went to the SMS conversation for a particular Contact, and changed the "Call ringtone" to a ringtone different from the ringtone I use for junk calls. That ringtone for the Contact played fine when I chose it, and the name of the ringtone shows written under "Call ringtone" in the Options menu for that Contact. However, whenever that Contact calls, I get the ringtone for junk calls, not the ringtone shown as the one for that Contact. Is there a way to make Hangouts actually use the ringtone set for a specific Contact? It should be noted that my contacts don't use Hangouts to call me, they just use a regular phone dial out, so maybe if they were using Hangouts it would work. It should also be noted that when I choose a Contact-specific ringtone in Contacts for my carrier phone number (rather than my Google Voice number for Hangouts), that Contact-specific ringtone works fine (it doesn't use the ringtone it would use had I not chosen a different one for that Contact.)
