I'm trying to create a custom notification sound for a single calendar event. For example, I want to use one mp3 for my reminder to take out the garbage, another for a birthday reminder, etc.

Is this possible? My phone is an HTC One running stock 4.4.2


  • I have not tried the Caledar Event Reminder, but it's probably worth checking out. Can't try, because it's paid, and doesn't have a trial version.

1 Answer 1

  1. Download "File Manager (Explorer)" from Google Play List and explore "Notification" Folder.

  2. Copy your custom file - MP3 ringtones in the "Notification" folder.

  3. Open the Google Calendar --> General Settings --> Sounds --> You can find your custom file to select.

Hope this resolves your clarification.

    They don't want to set a general sound effect. They want a different sound effect for each individual event in the calendar.
