Can the default notification tone be set in Messages?

Member

Recently upgraded to s7 (with Marshmallow) and am loving it.

However, hit a snag in reconfiguring Verizon Messages.

I know it is possible to set a unique tone for individual contacts, but is it possible to set a default notification tone for all incoming messages (that hasn't been overridden by individually set tones)?

I have scoured Messages' and the Android settings (including app manager), but can't find a way.

Unless I'm misunderstanding your question (and post back if I am):

With Verizon Messages open, tap the three dots in the upper right-hand corner, then tap Customize, then tap Tones and change it to your preference.

A "well ... duh" moment for me!
Honestly, didn't notice that setting from the "traffic light" menu.

Just checked and after setting a notification sound there, ALL current text conversations now have the same notification tone ... which then still can be individualized if desired.
