Custom Notification Sounds Released

Posted by Jason Ephraim on April 7, 2016

Introducing Customizable Notification Sounds for Mailbird We are 3 weeks into our month-long hackathon and we’ve already put some heavy work into features like our upcoming contact sync. As a side project, a couple of our developers wanted to offer a quick improvement they felt many of our users would enjoy as we continue working on our large/major features coming down the line. Mailbird is all about customization. Layout, color, font… And now, you can even customize how it sounds! Starting today, all Mailbird users will find the ability to choose a new notification sound in the Mailbird options menu under the “General” tab. In the menu, you will find a few options to choose from including the default “Chirp” notification sound. Upload your own sound At the bottom of the dropdown, you’ll see “Custom…”. Selecting this will allow you to upload any mp3 or wav file that is less than 1 MB in size. Where can you get the sounds? Anywhere. Cut them from your favorite songs, record your daughter’s first words. The possibilities are endless. If you need some help finding a few good sounds, we’ve collected some great sites that allow you to download a bunch of good options. Don’t see the custom notification sounds option? You may need to update to the latest version of Mailbird. Visit the options menu, click on about, and select check for updates. If you are still having trouble finding the options, our support team is always here to…
