Open up a conversation and tap View Contact, and you’ll spot new options for custom notifications. There are settings for vibration alerts, lights, pop-ups and audio tones. This should make it easier to spot messages from people you care about, without having to unlock your device. Here’s how to do that:
To customize your notification settings, such as ringtones and vibrations:
Go to Options > Settings > Notifications.
Select your personalized notification settings.
