    I made several mp3 clips I over the years that I have kept and used as ringtones, alarms and notifications on my phones. With the OnePlus 6T, the sound browser just shows a lo-o-o-o-ong unsorted list of track names from my large music library. The only view options I see are 'All' or 'Fragment' and neither sorts anything by album, artist or folder or even alphabetically to more easily find the tracks I want to use.

    I used to use Handcent (Next SMS) for texts and would still install it despite switching to Google messages because it gave me the option to use it's file browser to select the Google Messages or Phone app or GMail sound.

    Is there a way to better find music tracks for notifications on the 6T? Maybe an trick or an app that lets me navigate music files by artist, album, filename or folder for notifications? Having Handcent (Next SMS) installed isn't working. (I don't think it worked on the Pixel either, but I recall being able to find my files by artist or folder in Android 9 before I wiped it)

    Thanks in advance!

    It seems that OxygenOS cannot sort my media (by Artist Name, Album Name, Folder, File Name, etc) when choosing my own ringtone or notification sound.

    NO better way to pick custom notification sounds with a huge music library?-screenshot_20190528-124024-copy.jpgNO better way to pick custom notification sounds with a huge music library?-screenshot_20190528-124035-copy.jpgNO better way to pick custom notification sounds with a huge music library?-screenshot_20190528-124048-copy.jpgNO better way to pick custom notification sounds with a huge music library?-screenshot_20190528-124105-copy.jpg

    According to support chat, "We will work on this and get an update in the near future.'

    It's almost funny that the OP6T Clock app can do it for alarms however...

    My Nexus 6P could sort ringtones like the OP6T can do alarms, same with my Pixel 1 XL has no one tried to pick a song as a ringtone on a OP6T from a big music library? Or is my phone 'broken?'

    Yes, it's a complete joke how OnePlus missed this.
