Unique Notification Sounds per App on Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus - Can't Do

I want to set up unique Notificaton Sounds for some Apps on the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. However, there are only three unique notification sounds I can set up . . . Messsages, Calender and Default (which gets applied to all others). All the forums say look in each individual App and click on the settings and then choose the sound you want for that App there. But none of the apps have an option to define the Notification sound, only an on/off button to confirm if you want a notification sound. Why is it not possible to set up unique sounds for each App?

It's not possible because it's the app that chooses which notification sound it uses, not the operating system. The system provides an interface for choosing sounds, but these developers have chosen not to use that and hence they just get the default notification sound.

You could contact the app developers and see whether you can persuade them to add the feature.
