Google's Sound app's December redesign will make modifying audio cues more simple to modify. The app's changelog reads that the app updated its design and now has "different collections to fit your style" in the Google Play Store.
The app is meant to send updates to the Sound menu in the Settings app, according to 9to5 Google.
Users with newer Android devices or Pixel smartphones can choose from color-coded ringtone categories like My Sounds, Pixel Sounds, Classical Harmonies, Minimal Melodies, Reality Bytes, and Retro Riffs.
Each category has an individual color scheme to make it easier to identify. It also looks like users will get to pick from a wider range of new ringtones and notification sounds, at least on the Pixel 3.
The ringtone you pick will be listed at the top as Currently Set.
The new app isn't live for everyone yet, though. It appears in the Play Store but is not showing up on everyone's phone. As this month's security patch might not be completed yet, users might expect to find it later.
The Android users who have access to the update seem pleased.
"I love the new [user interface] and updated design," one user wrote in the Play Store. "It's nice to finally have more variety with my ringtones and visualization."
