Well it's about time this feature was added. I've been wanting custom notification sounds for a long time now... though I have yet to get the update... ;P

If you haven't figured this out yet when you have your phone hooked up to your computer move the ringtones you want to the path below and they come up in hangouts for you.

Internal storage>media>audio>notifications

The update isn't showing up for me just yet. I am wondering when they will integrate Google Voice texting into the app?
