Unique notification sounds
For both Xbox One and Xbox 360:
The achievement "pop" has become an iconic part of the Xbox experience and synonymous with achievements themselves. However, that same sound is used for every notification on Xbox, including things as mundane as a friend signing in.
Please add unique notification sounds for other events and help the achievement pop maintain its integrity as the sound that signifies accomplishment.

I like the idea off different sounds but I would also like the ability to turn off notification sounds it's a nightmare when watching tv but id like to see when my friends are online but no sound would be great.
I would use this feature. It would be neat if you could record your own sounds or make them long or short. Or set a loud scream on a friends when they aren't around.

I like the pop sound when I unlock the achievements so I want this sound is special for achievement. And I want to notify the sound to specify the situation, someone inviting me to the party, praise my activity or just low battery of controller.

When people sign in the pop us sound, should be different from when people get an achievement.

Both sounds are the same, should be different.
Just have a couple of different sound themes to choose from like Windows has always had.

Whenever I hear that sound and see the xbox notification appear at the bottom of the screen I always perk up in anticipation of short lived gratification.
My suggestion is a Seperate noise for system notifications, achievments, and messages, in order to end all of the false achivement alarms that go off in my head everytime my batteries are running low.
@xMalibuStaciEx had it right regarding people with sight issues. This would help so much in differentiating exactly what's just happened rather than having to worry about whether you've missed a party invite for example. Also, like others have said, this idea can extend to customisable sounds so that you can have whatever achievement sound you want etc.
Adding music when you unlock a achievement should be added.

It's not right for all of the millions of XBOX members to have the same notification sound when we get a message or a favorite friend signs in. Just like we all have different notification sounds on our cell phones when we get a text.
I be watching players on TWITCH, and when the gamer who I be watching gets a notification, for a second I be thinking that notification was for me.
Just like we choose our own pictures, Themes, & Colors. Can y'all please make a list of at least 100 Notification sounds, and let us pick our own Notification sound?
Please add a different "ring tone" / "pop up noise" for each notification. EG. a separate tune , so that users can differentiate between when a friend signs in vs receiving a party invite vs receiving a new message in the inbox.
(It would make it a lot easier to id what is what , especially for users who have sight issues )
Please let us the choise to enable or disable system sound interface. And for "pling plong" lovers, add an unique sound effect for the achievement "pop".

This shouldn't even have to be said. Everyone hates it when they hear the pop and it turns out to be just a friend logging in. I also hate 0g achievements for things like Netflix.
I would like to add these unique sounds to the Windows 10 app.
I would like different notification sounds to choose from. For example, I could have one sound for when friends come online and another for when I get a party invite. I think this would make a great addition to the xbox world.
This should be an option, even 360 has where you can turn off sounds

Make the sounds different for Notifications than they are for Achievements. Right now they are the same sound, which makes it hard to get excited when you get an Achievement because we hear it all the time. This is one area that PlayStation is better. There's no mistaking getting a Trophy on a PS3/PS4. Hearing that Trophy chime is exhilarating! Please do something similar for Xbox One!!
Or the option to turn them off completely.
When playing a game, I love going after achievements. That short tone along with the notification itself makes me incredibly gleeful. However, I think it would be nice (and less disappointing) if we could alter the sounds of the notifications so we could differentiate a party invite from an achievement among others.
Go to settings and change your sound effect for achievements
