A new way to customize


Google has made several custom apps for the Pixel and Pixel XL, and its latest one appears to be an app called Sounds that was just uploaded to the Play Store, as spotted by 9to5Google. However, the link to the app is only accessible if you have a Pixel.

The app listing describes Sounds as a way for users to customize their alarms, ringtones, and notifications. It’s an updated version of the Sounds menu found in Pixel settings. As you test out each sound, the app uses colorful visualizations so you can better differentiate each ringtone from the other.

Others have saved the APK and noted that the app doesn’t quite have those visualizations available yet, and doesn’t even offer any new ringtones. That’s likely because this isn’t the final version of the Sounds app, and we won’t see it available in the Play Store to more devices besides the Pixel until Google adds those features in.

Update December 4th, 5:11PM ET: This article has been corrected to reflect that the app is currently accessible to Pixel users.
