With the release of the new Android app, you can set a special ringtone for your PagerDuty push notification alerts. There will never be any confusion; you will know right away when Arnold is telling you to “Get to Da Choppa” that it is a PagerDuty alert!

We are very excited about the addition of customized ringtones and hope that this will make it even easier for you to respond quickly to critical alerts. I mean, c’mon, no one would dare defy Arnold!
If you need assistance setting up custom ringtones on your phone or have any feedback, we would love to hear from you.
As you might imagine, adding custom sounds is a little different on the iOS app. We’re working on it and would love to hear what sounds you would like to have bundled with the PagerDuty iPhone app. Contact us on twitter with your suggestions.
