Cant get alert sounds for new text mess how do I remove hangout
Hangout is a native app from Android, it can not be remove, this is if you are using the latest Android OS.
But there is a way around, I guess you want to use another messaging app as your default sms. The first thing that you can do is to disable Hangout. You can achieve this by going to setting, apps, search for Hangout and tap it, now tap disable.
Now, I'm not sure how to enable default for a third party app, in this case a messaging app, but you can always open the new app and maybe it could prompt you to set it as default. For the sound or ringtone, there are 2 ways to do it.
1. Open the messaging app and tap the menu, from here you can set the ringtone for your sms.
2. Download and install Zedge from the PlayStore, download the ringtones that you like the most, after downloading them, the one that you want to set it as your sms ringtone, just tap set at the bottom, and choose messages or sms.
