For some users, this would prevent them from having to configure a different tone for each application. Meanwhile, many others (like me) want a different tone for reminders. This is because the default tone is usually soft and we do not pay attention to it thinking it's just a random notification.
Therefore, I prefer to have an emphatic tone for the important things. If you also want to change the default notification sound of reminders in Google Keep Notes, you're in the right place.
Let's see how to change the reminder tone in Keep. As a bonus, you will also learn some tips for keeping reminders.
Change the reminder tone in Google Keep
Google Keep Notes does not offer a native setting in the application to change the reminder sound, as you may have noticed in applications such as WhatsApp. However, you can change it from the phone settings. To do this, follow these steps:
Step 1: Open the settings on your phone and go to Applications and Notifications or Apps depending on the option available on your phone.
2nd step: Under All Apps (if available), tap Keep Notes.
Step 3: Tap Notifications. Here you will find various categories of notifications, such as reminders, shared notes, and more. As a general rule, a user thinks that these options are not exploitable and can not be activated or activated. However, be prepared to be surprised. Any notification category followed by a vertical bar (pipe), ie, | offers various customizable settings such as sound, vibration and notification point.
Step 4: Touch Reminders, then Sound. On some devices you will find the option Sound under Advanced. It will show the default tone.
Step 5: Choose your tone from the available tones or set a custom tone. You can customize here other settings for reminders, such as the contents of the locked screen, the flashing LED and the replacement, so as not to disturb.
On phones running Android 7.1 Nougat and above, you can keep the app icon on the home screen or in the application drawer to view the shortcuts of the application. One of them is the application icon (i), which takes you directly to step 3 above.
Note: You can change the reminder ringtone on Android phones only. This feature is not available on iPhone.
Tip 3: Change the default reminder time
When creating reminders in Keep, you must have noticed that it offers predefined schedules for the morning, afternoon, evening and night. It is not necessary to set the time if you want to be called back at these specific times only.
For some people, the time given in these intervals corresponds to the time of their choice. But your Android phone or tablet may have multiple users, and others may not be comfortable with that. Fortunately, Keep offers a native setting to change the timing of these intervals. To do this, follow these steps:
Step 1: Open the Keep application and press the three-bar icon. Select Settings.
2nd step: Under Default Reminder, tap the time you want to edit. This will be reflected in the future for all notes when you create reminders.
Tip 4: Delete the reminder
It is not mandatory to delete the entire note only to delete its reminder. You can also delete a reminder independently. To do this, press the reminder time in the note. Then press the Delete key in the dialog box.
All or nothing
Hopefully now you will not miss any reminders in Keep Notes. However, you should note that the above method to change the Keep ringing reminder works for all types of callbacks. You can not set a separate tone for individual reminders.
Then: Google Keep Notes is missing folders But it offers other ways to organize notes. What are they? Find it in our next post.
