No custom Alert Sounds in Windows Phone emulator

image2 weeks ago WPCentral claimed Windows Phone 8 would have custom audio alert sounds.  Now MimovilWindows has been able to check out this feature in the leaked Windows Phone 8 emulator.

They report unfortunately that while alert sounds can be selected, this is no different from Windows Phone 7, and users will only be able to select from a small list of pre-loaded alert sounds.

There is a smidgen of good news however.  The emulator contains 4 new pre-loaded alert sounds:

  • Windows message
  • Windows reminder
  • Windows voicemail
  • Windows email

Everything else is pretty much the same as Windows Phone 7.5, which is somewhat disappointing for this much-requested feature.
